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

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.

I found Series 2 positively charming. Dazzling set dressing; wonderful costumes, make up, hairdos; a nicely flowing story with some surprising twists and well fleshed out characters. I also found the acting overall more convincing than in the first series. For me it's a keeper.

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.

This review is for the dvd. I waited many months for the blu ray to be released in the UK, but it never happened. Very disappointed by that. The storylines were much stronger than in series one and moved away from the rather contrived concept of linking each episode with an historical event. Of course the back story was the developments during the First World War and the effect on the staff, so that filled up much of the series.
However, the DVD picture quality and sound were very weak compared with series one which I bought on blu ray. I prefer, if possible, to watch period dramas on blu ray as it shows the costumes and scenery to great effect. WHY NO UK BLU RAY?

Love Mr Selfridge! I also bought the 1st series from Amazon.

I love dramas like this and have me gripped. I find myself searching to see if new series are coming out and when!

Sorry I will not say anything about the actual storyline as I do not want to spoil it for others that have not seen it.

All I can say it would have been wonderful to have worked for Mr Selfridge. I find myself feeling rather protective towards him and hate it when he is upset or mistreated by those he would do anything for. Looking forward to the 4th series... but know it will be sad.
