Season 1 Episode 1
Andrew Davies' drama based on the life of American retail magnate Harry Gordon Selfridge, starring Jeremy Piven (Entourage) and Katherine Kelly (formerly Coronation Street's Becky McDonald). Harry arrives in London in 1908 with a grand plan - to open the biggest and finest department store in the world, and to do it within the year. With a frosty reception from the British press, the last-minute departure of a business partner and an ever-growing staff already on the payroll, not to mention his wife and family arriving from the US, the pressure is on for Harry to complete the project on time. As opening day approaches, he pulls out all the stops to achieve his dream - whatever the cost. With Frances O'Connor, Trystan Gravelle, Aisling Loftus and Tom Goodman-Hill

 
Season 1 Episode 2
The store has been open for a few months, the displays are dazzling and the staff are as eager as they were on opening day - but customers are few and far between. In an attempt to attract business, Harry arranges a meeting with French aviator Louis Bleriot - the first man to fly across the English Channel - hoping to exhibit his plane inside Selfridges. The event is a huge success, drawing in crowds of shoppers, but the retail magnate's sense of victory is short-lived. First, Lady Mae turns up to remind him how much he is in her debt. Then, he's caught in a compromising situation in Ellen's dressing room. Drama, starring Jeremy Piven, Katherine Kelly and Zoe Tapper

 
Season 1 Episode 3
Harry comes up with another new project to give the store a boost - he wants to set up a beauty counter near the front entrance to sell perfume and make-up - but some of the staff are not convinced this is such a good idea. Meanwhile, Victor is still trying to woo Agnes, but she appears to be more interested in Henri, and Lady Mae tells Rose the truth about Mr Selfridge's partnership with Ellen, which spurs Rose to do something for herself

 
Season 1 Episode 4
Harry scores something of a coup when prima ballerina Anna Pavlova agrees to pay Selfridges a visit. However, Agnes's job looks to be under threat when a violent Reg reaches breaking point and gatecrashes the event - and things only get worse when Ellen invites herself along. Meanwhile, one of the department store's most loyal employees is caught stealing, a formidable new head of fashion arrives and Rose reveals her true identity to Roddy

 
Season 1 Episode 5
Harry delights in a new car brought in for a window display, but after a confrontation with Rose, who has received a visit from his mistress Ellen Love, he hits rock bottom, drinking and reliving a traumatic childhood memory as he drives the vehicle into the night. Meanwhile, Agnes falls out with Victor when she returns to Selfridges, although Henri is pleased to see her again. Period drama, starring Jeremy Piven

 
Season 1 Episode 6
Harry is left unconscious after the car accident and as his family gathers by his bedside, the news arrives that Mrs Grove is dead - something which leaves Miss Mardle confused. Meanwhile, a suffragette demonstration in the area sees all the store's staff pulling together, and as Victor and Lady Mae conduct their secret affair, Agnes and Henri's friendship continues to grow

 
Season 1 Episode 7
Author and spiritualist Arthur Conan Doyle is in Selfridges for a Sherlock Holmes book signing when he persuades Harry to hold a seance in the store - and the results of the gathering force the retail magnate to have a long-overdue heart-to-heart with Lois.

New series. Return of the drama based on the life of retail magnate Harry Gordon Selfridge, played by Jeremy Piven.

However, it's clear there's still a rift between them and she's more interested in an exciting new friendship with a novelist. Meanwhile, Lady Mae is thrown by her husband's unexpected arrival in London, and after hearing him blackmail his way onto a government military committee, she knows he's up to something - especially with all the rumours of an impending war.
