Mr Selfridge

Series 1 - Episode 7



Harry Selfridge is back at work after his car accident, looking remarkably chipper. We can see his arms didn’t suffer any injuries because there they are, windmilling and thrusting upwards in spurious flourishes again as he welcomes Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (John Sessions) to a book-signing. But Conan Doyle wants more than a boost in sales of his latest novel, he wants to hold a seance because everyone knows he believes in that sort of thing. Some of the staff are scandalised, what with poor Mr Grove’s wife barely cold. But they are thrilled too as the lights dim and strange things start to happen, prompting a bizarre reaction from Mr Selfridge (Jeremy Piven).


Author and spiritualist Arthur Conan Doyle is in Selfridges for a Sherlock Holmes book signing when he persuades Harry to hold a seance in the store - and the results of the gathering force the retail magnate to have a long-overdue heart-to-heart with Lois. Meanwhile, Agnes is transferred to women's fashion, Doris resolves to help an old friend, Miss Mardle is still agonising over Mr Grove, and Kitty has a secret admirer. Guest starring John Sessions, with Jeremy Piven, Kika Markham and Aisling Loftus.
