Mr Selfridge Episode Guide

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
