Trivia

When Rose Selfridge meets Roderick Temple at the National Gallery, she fibs and tells him her last name is Buckingham. In fact, the real Rosalie Selfridge was named Buckingham before her marriage to Harry Gordon Selfridge. The Buckingham family was a very prominent one in Rosalie's native Chicago, and relatives of Rosalie gave the funds for the enormous Buckingham Fountain in Grant Park, which is still one of Chicago's best-known public landmarks.

Visually stunning, well-acted period piece
13 May 2013 | by caroline-kaiserSee 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.
