Product Description

All 20 episodes from the first and second series of the ITV period drama tracing the story of the founder of the famous London department store. In the first series, the year is 1909 and fresh from a successful retail career in Chicago, a dashing Harry Selfridge (Jeremy Piven) arrives in London intent on building the world's largest department store in the capital's Oxford Street. Helped by his association with socialite Lady Mae Moxley (Katherine Kelly), Harry soon has the financial backing necessary for his plans, resulting in the store being completed in record time. But as the company goes from strength to strength, Harry's marriage to his wife Rose (Frances O'Connor) is jeopardised by his continuing infatuation with music hall artiste Ellen Love (Zoë Tapper). In the second series, the year is 1914 and Harry has become even more estranged from his wife Rose, but is ecstatic when she arrives to partake in celebrations for the fifth anniversary of the store's opening. Also, growing tension in Europe has the staff worried that Selfridge might return to the States if war breaks out.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm charmed off my feet by Mr Selfridge! 20 July 2014
By Lola TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
I was not at all sure about Mr Selfridge the series (I mean, what can it be about, I thought, it's like sucking a story out of a thumb!). BUT, by episode three of the first season I was fully converted (you have to live through the longish pilot episode). I was addicted to the story of ostentatious and flamboyant Harry Gordon Selfridge (excellently cast Jeremy Piven), the American brain and power behind the top London department store Selfridge & Co. He is a force of nature, ready to charm you off your feet! First season opens with Mr Selfridge planning to open the store while his business partners pull out, and the season close with Selfridges the store blooming and Selfridges the flashy American in the midst of family troubles. Second season is much darker, it picks up in 1914 as Selfridge & Co. celebrates its fifth anniversary while Europe is on the brink of war.

There are affairs, there are brilliant outfits, there are bohemian artists and stolen kisses, there is a spirit of a dead wife, a very sexy Frenchy (and quite annoying Italian) and one and only Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Each episode explores different themes but ultimately it's all about love, loss, ambition and the new era - the beginning of the Twentieth Century! The series are beautifully filmed, interiors and exteriors are well researched and some of the fashions are original outfits from the bygone era - this all makes London of the early twentieth century look rich and elegant.

I heard a number of complains about the slight annoyance of Jeremy Piven and/or inability of Mr Selfridge the series to compare with the "Downton Abbey". All I can say - no complaints from me! This is a brilliant, upbeat but thoughtful, somewhat educational (I think so!), good-hearted series. And I cannot wait to watch the third season.

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT DVD 16 Jun 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Ordered this for my parents as they like me had seen the TV series but the adverts do tend to spoil these good series not to mention having to wait from one week to the next to catch the next show. My parents loved it and have watched it a couple of times and will watch it again and again leaving a break in between. Both I and my parents buy a number of TV mini series DVD's so we can watch without the adverts, weekly delays etc. If you have watched the TV series and like us hated the interruptions then buy this DVD. If you haven't been watching the serious then this is a must DVD but you will need to get series one as well. A great story line and lovely to find out the history of Selfridge's

5.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable viewing Mr Selfridge 24 April 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
It is a pleasure to watch this wonderful series on DVD thus avoiding all the advertising when it was on ITV, as this spoilt the viewing on TV. Only wish it had been shown on BBC1 instead of ITV, ah! Well at least I have the DVD now, thank you Amazon.

5.0 out of 5 stars British drama at its best. A stunner! 3 Sep 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Take that "Downton Abbey."

Mr. Selfridge is the finest British drama I have seen to date. Casting, props, costumes, superb acting. But at the heart of any production is the script and this one shines.

Can't wait for Season 3 in 2015.

I had watched the second series of Mr Selfridge after hearing so much about it and loved it, so wanted to see the first, as I had missed so much background. I was most definitely not disappointed!!! I'm definitely a fan!

5.0 out of 5 stars Mr Selfridge customer satisfaction no adverts
This was chosen because it was suitable for watching by someone who is partially disabled. She found the TV dark and difficult to follow but enjoyed the DVD version immensely.
