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 »

Visually stunning, well-acted period piece
13 May 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I admit that I'm surprised and puzzled by the number of negative reviews of Mr. Selfridge on this site. I'm actually wondering if I'm watching a completely different show from the one many reviewers describe! Beginning with the dazzling opening credits and stylish musical score, this show is an absolute joy every week. I fail to understand how anyone can possibly be unimpressed by the gorgeous period costumes and sets and the fine, subtle performances of most of the cast. If there's a weakness to be found, it's with Jeremy Piven's acting, though I admit that even he's starting to grow on me as his character begins to acquire a little more dimension. But there's so much else that's wonderful about this series, including engaging story lines, that Piven can almost be overlooked. Overall, it's a light, frothy confection that charms and delights in an easy way that few shows ever manage. But I suppose charm is out of fashion. And please, let's stop comparing it to Downton Abbey, which it's not even attempting to replicate, and judge it on its own merits, which are considerable.
