Back for a second series, the ITV hit Mr Selfridge brings to life the spectacular rise of the American retail genius, Harry Selfridge, in a lavish and seductive series, set in glamor of bustling London at the emergence of modern retail. Harry, his family, friends, lovers and staff open up a rich cross section of London life. From the fashionable Mayfair society to the bright lights, grease-paint, glamour and backstage intrigue of London's theatres; from business board rooms, private poker games and smoky jazz halls to the back-street cafes of the working men and women. It is the story of turn of the century ambition, eccentricity and commercial enterprise against the remnants of stuffy Victorian and Edwardian values.

Season Two of “Mr Selfridge” picks up in 1914 as Selfridge & Co. celebrates its fifth anniversary while Europe is on the brick of war. It begins with proprietor Harry Selfridge (excellently cast Jeremy Piven) anxious for the return of his estranged wife Rose (Frances O'Connor) from America; and continues with plenty of war-related stories, as well as love stories. Though the central figure of Mr. Selfridge is H.G. Selfridge, it's the whole cast that makes the show come alive, as it centres of the relationships among employees and employers, which are passionate, supportive, sometimes dysfunctional and very occasionally spiteful.

I loved this season, although it is much darker then the first, it is still impressively detailed and masterfully put together. “Mr Selfridge” is not a show for everybody, but if it fits your mood, it’s such enjoyable series! I really loved the show and cannot wait for Season Three.

The second season shows a more family orientated Mr. Selfridge and get to like his character better than the first season.

The acting is super of all the main characters and the story line of Lady May and her awful husband helps to liven up the season.

The introduction of new characters gives a better insight into the jealousies among the staff and how each of them handles their own personal problems.

Look forward to a series 3

This is the best production of a rivetting period drama for some time. The quality of the Writing and Acting is sparkling as is the lavish well researched Costume Design and authentic scenery. A feast. The Oxford Street outdoor scenes with carriages and buses are truly atmospheric and cleverly filmed.
The second series, 5 years on, contains several intriguing twists and turns that have us in suspense wiith some sad and some satisfying unexpected conclusions.

l felt proud to read that something which l enjoyed SO much has attracted acclaim from all over the world.
Much more enjoyable on DVD without adverts breaking the fantastic atmosphere and dialogue.
l lit my room with candlelight and stayed
up watching all the episodes all night, hooked ! Now waiting for series three "with supreme anticipation."
A masterpiece. l hope they win awards for every aspect of this production.

"Mr Selfridge" is a British television drama produced by ITV Studios in the UK and Masterpiece/WGBH in the US. The drama is named after Harry Gordon Selfridge (1858-1947), an American businessman, who lived and worked in England for many years. In 1906 he came to London. He was on a holiday, but he decided to stay, and three years later he opened a department store, which carried his family name: Selfridge's. His aim was to create the biggest and the best department store in all of London, indeed in all of England.

He was full of ideas, he had a lot of initiative. He wanted people to go shopping not out of necessity but for pleasure. He is credited with coining the phrase "The customer is always right."

"Mr Selfridge" is a period drama about the life and the times of this man and the numerous people around him:

** His family: his wife and his children
** The people who work for him: the staff
** The people who come to the store: the customers

I do not wish to spoil the viewing for anyone. Therefore I am not going to reveal too many details in this review. But I can offer some general information.

The main character Harry Selfridge is played by American actor Jeremy Piven, who is absolutely right for this role. Since this is a television drama, we must understand and accept that not all characters and not all events are real, but many characters are real, and the general storyline is based on a true story. Several famous people from the period pop up from time to time, in most cases because they are invited to make an appearance at the store.

A brilliant series that delivers not only insight into the fashion world of the early twentieth century but is also able to tie in key historical events like WW1. While series one was slow at first, series 2 delivers very strong episodes which lead towards a big conclusion. Top quality drama. A must see for any fans of period dramas like Downton Abbey and The Paradise.

Well there's not much point recapping the plot, cast or features in this box set as part of this review as that's been done in the item description.

I think anybody buying series 2 of Mr Selfridge will probably be fully familiar with the series anyway and just looking to continue their DVD collection of this fine period drama.

Most people will probably just want to know:

Is it packed well?
Is it shipped quickly?
Is the price competitive?

Well (at the time of writing this) it costs £9.90 including p&p. That's an amazing price and you can stay in your nice warm home waiting for delivery rather than trudging to the shops in the rain.

There were absolutely no problems with packing and shipping took just a couple of days (even though it was Christmas).

I'm happy with the service and my partner is delighted with being able to pine for Jeremy Piven for another season.

Oh and a fun fact: Selfridges is and anagram of "fridge less" and it's quite true they really DON'T sell them !
