One of the many accidental joys of
is its Wikipedia-style fact-dump introductions of historical celebrities. Tonight FW Woolworth drops in on his old friend Harry Selfridge in London, prompting the Selfridge family butler to drop “Mr Woolworth is an American gentleman, I believe?” into a conversation with his boss.
FW (Michael Brandon) wants to open a shop on Oxford Street, which unnerves Mr S (Jeremy Piven), who decides to take on the Woolworth “pile ’em high, sell ’em cheap” ethos with a mid-season Selfridge’s sale.
The staff are very excited, though some are busy pursuing romantic liaisons, like Agnes and the hot French window dresser who has undressing on his mind: “You want this? You sure?” he asks after putting out his fag.
Old family friends Frank and Jennie Woolworth arrive in London and Harry is immediately suspicious he might have some competition on his hands. Determined to seize the advantage, he plans a mid-season sale - but there's little chance he can match his rivals' low prices. Meanwhile, life turns awkward for Rose when she runs into Roddy at Lady Mae's soiree, Agnes and Henri's working relationship steps up a gear, and Mr Grove's behaviour continues to confuse Miss Mardle.
