I love this series. Well done! I was impressed with the accuracy of this biographical story. Harry Gordon Selfridge was larger than life. He took chances and believed in himself. When he died 8 May 1947 he was nearly a pauper but he sure had a good run! His wife "Rose" Rosalie Amelia Buckingham Selfridge tragically died 22 May 1918 of influenza. Their daughters Violette and Rosalie both married aviators. Violette was also an aviator. She and her husband flew around the world in a Gypsy Moth in 1928 and published a book about it in 1930.
Once again PBS has brought us a stellar preformance.

It might be that it was a bit unfair to this production to air it after Downton Abbey's season end, and on the heels of Call the Midwife. (Two EXTRAORDINARILY well executed shows in every aspect.) The costumes and sets on this are amazing, but compared to the delicate balance of the other two shows, who manage to interweave "delicate" social issues in a flawless and compassionate manner---Mr Selfridge seems coarse. This show just unsettled my sensibilities. Especially on the heels of Downton, and Midwife. For me, Mister Selfridge seemed like an episode of a soap opera, in period costume, with acting not as well done. Agree with the other comment about the accessories manager. Nothing about her character to like. And yet....it's like watching a train wreck, hoping against hope to find a survivor---the set and costumes are so lovely.

Comments about PBS Masterpiece: Mr. Selfridge Season 1 (U.K. Edition) DVD:

This is a fun series to watch as it is based on a true story. Set in the WW1 period and starts off in 1908. The "ways of the world" were so different as this was over a century ago (and based London). I have grown very fond of the actor who plays Mr. Selfridge (Jeremy Piven). He is portrayed as having a huge personality...big hopes and dreams. I originally ordered season 1 and 2. But just saw season 3 also. And looks like season 4 will be coming in 2016. It's interesting to see the start of the women's rights movement, as back then womens best hope was to marry well and take care of home and family. Interesting to see the period clothing, homes, customs, advent of airplanes. Enjoy!

I visited London back in the '90s and shopped at Selfridge's not knowing the rich and amazing history... Thank you PBS for introducing to the fascinating backstory of this great and famous store and doing it with such great style and detail! I am now completely hooked on series! Well done!

Comments about PBS Masterpiece: Mr. Selfridge Season 1 (U.K. Edition) DVD:

I got hooked on The Paradise and thought Selfridges would be bigger and better.It is bigger budget definitely.Just can't warm to the characters as I did with The Paradise.So sorry to hear it was canceled.Still,nice to have,though I would not have made the purchase had I seen the series.
