Trivia

In earlier seasons, the Selfridges have four children. Gordon Selfridge (Adam Wilson), Rosalie Selfridge (Poppy Lee Friar), Violette Selfridge (Freya Wilson), and Beatrice Selfridge (Raffey Cassidy). In order to show proper age progression in later seasons, actors were replaced. Gordon Selfridge was now played by Greg Austin, Rosalie & Violette were played by real life sisters Kara & Hannah Tointon. Beatrice is not mentioned at all in season 3, even though it seems all of the Selfridge family is now residing back in London. See more »

British TV at it's best
1 March 2013 | by See all my reviews

I am loving this series and the details that the production company have put into the costumes and sets are a delight to watch. The hats (referring to some of the previous reviews) are in keeping of the time and reflect, with some humour, some the huge hats women wore at this time. Though I am sure that Mrs Selfridge would have had more hats as she was very wealthy would be nice to see her wearing a few more designs (hint hint ). The cast is very well put together a nice mix of interesting characters, reminds me of the original series of Upstairs Downstairs showing both the upper class and working class characters. I hope they continue to explore all of these characters as well Mr Selfridge.

Some people have made mention to the lack of locations used in the series so far, myself I actually like the fact that it's not filmed in hundreds of locations. With good story and characters I don't need to be shown lots of location filming to grab my interest. Though it would be quite nice to see some more of the homes of the workers. As much as I am enjoying this series as pure entertainment I am actually finding it historically interesting to see the beginnings of the modern department store that we know today. Having worked in department store myself I found all those little details such as the introduction of the perfume counter at the front of the store very interesting from a geeky historian point of view lol. Over all a Lovely series to watch on a Sunday night, I hope there will be a 2nd series, nice to see ITV doing more period dramas.
