An excellent English period drama
on 10 December 2013
"Mr Selfridge" is being shown here on DSTV in South Africa and follows on from the showing of Series 2 of "Downton Abbey". Therefore i was expecting a let down after the excellence of "Downton Abbey", but to my pleasant suprise, this English TV Drama series is in my opinion a worthy competitor to "Downton Abbey" and dare i say it, i think it is a better series.
The attention to detail of the period is outstanding,the plot concerning the founding and running of Selfridges London Store is intriguing and cannot wait for each weekly episode and am suprised that it did not get any Emmy Awards. Mr Selfridge played by Jeremy Niven cannot be faulted, while the rest of the cast play their roles superbly.
The plot flows so sublimely, far better than "Downton Abbey" and you are transported in to early 20th century London quite magnificently.
A must see for lovers of quality English period dramas.
