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.

A vacation back in time

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

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.

Surprisingly Entertaining

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

I had not seen any of the episodes of this series.
I wasn't sure I would like it. I purchased the first season to check it out.
After the second episode I was totally enthralled and hooked. Research has shown me that this was a real man, family, life. The early 1900's was such an exciting time for fashion and women.
I can't get enough. I have ordered and watch the 2nd season and have just received the 3rd season. I was happy to learn there will be a 4th.
Will watch repeatedly. Kudos PBS. You have done it again.

I have just finished watching Season 1 and am completely absorbed in the storyline. The characters are intriguing while endearing. I am looking forward to viewing the second and third seasons.

One of my favorite dramas

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

Masterpiece has done it again! I was riveted to my seat when Mr. Selfridge first aired.
One of the best things about PBS is the moment the credits start, you're transported to a new world with new friends.
I found myself cheering for Harry's store to succeed! What will Rose do? Who will Agnes choose?
Then having to research the actual store because I just couldn't wait for season two!
It's taken me a long time to own my own copy of Season One. Now, I can finally share it with everyone I know who didn't get to see it when it was on tv.
I'm so glad I got an email from PBS asking me to write a review about my purchase.
Though I find it hard to pick a moment that I loved without spoiling it for someone who has yet to see it. Though, my favorite moments were of Rose and how she starts grow.
I will say as someone who loves history, it was wonderful to see how they weaved historical characters in with the fictional ones.
I can't wait to share this favorite with my cousin!
