Piven's take on Mr Selfridge is dripping with fun and flamboyance, and his performance is one of the many reasons why the drama works so well. His co-stars, though, deserve real credit too. The likes of Zoe Tapper and Aisling Loftus are amongst the many highlights in that department. Credit too to the sumptuous production design, which works hard to put across a real feel of the early twentieth century. Mr Selfridge is a glorious show simply to look at.
The drama at the heart of it is a whole lot of fun, too. It's occasionally a bit shallow and daft, but never sells you short as a piece of entertainment. Furthermore, it finds sparks in the inevitable clash of culture as an American man sets up what would go on to be a very British store. The disc release of Mr Selfridge, as well as featuring all of the episodes of the show's first series, also has an interesting behind the scenes peek at how it was all made, sweetening an already worthwhile deal. --Jon Foster
