Review

Cometh the hour, cometh the flashback. Every major TV character has to have a giddy moment when he or she is filmed from weird angles as a buried moment from childhood rears up from the depths of a damaged soul. And so it is with Harry Selfridge, who is tormented by thoughts of his father after riding to young shopgirl Agnes’s rescue. Her wasteful dad (Nick Moran) has, she thinks, ruined her career, but not if kindly Mr S has anything to do with it. What a caring employer; if only he were as a good a husband. Just look at Mrs Selfridge, humiliated in her home by coke-head Ellen Love.

Summary

Harry delights in a new car brought in for a window display, but after a confrontation with Rose, who has received a visit from his mistress Ellen Love, he hits rock bottom, drinking and reliving a traumatic childhood memory as he drives the vehicle into the night. Meanwhile, Agnes falls out with Victor when she returns to Selfridges, although Henri is pleased to see her again. Period drama, starring Jeremy Piven.
