Mr Selfridge returns straight after Dancing On Ice on Sunday for its second series.
Jeremy Piven and Katherine Kelly lead the cast of the critically-acclaimed show that attracted huge audiences last year during its first series. Expect to see a host of familiar faces for the second series including Amanda Abbington, Tom Goodman-Hill, Ron Cook, Amy Beth Hayes, Calum Callaghan and Samuel West.
The overview for the second series is:
Based upon the life of flamboyant American entrepreneur Harry Gordon Selfridge, who founded the world‐renowned store on London’s Oxford Street in 1909, the second series picks up the story in 1914 as the store celebrates its 5th anniversary of trading.
Harry, played by Emmy award‐winning American actor, Jeremy Piven (Entourage), is proud of the store’s success but there is no time to rest on his laurels. With rumours rife with talk of war in Europe, he prepares staff for challenging times ahead. The store must play its own part in the war effort and help keep morale high on the home front.
Now more than ever Harry needs his wife, Rose, played by Frances O’Connor (AI: Artificial Intelligence, Piccadilly Jim), by his side. But in the last five years, they have become increasingly estranged. Whilst Rose has been spending long periods in America with the couple’s daughters and their son Gordon attends school in Winchester, Harry lives the life of a single man in London.
