EPISODE 1: Once considered the vulgar venture of an upstart American, Selfridge & Co. is now the toast of London, about to celebrate its fifth anniversary. The store’s staff plans a surprise for Harry, and unexpected guests show up. Meanwhile, the latest sensation is a new nightclub, run by libertine Delphine Day, who is a new friend of Harry’s wife, Rose. Are the two institutions—Selfridges and Delphine’s—destined to cross paths? In other action, Lady Mae’s husband, Lord Loxley, is back in her life again. Rose spots a ghostly but familiar face at Delphine’s. And Agnes gets a huge promotion but makes a bitter enemy. On the larger stage, the Archduke of Austria is assassinated, touching off a crisis on the Continent.
Wonderful news!! Can hardly wait till Sunday to watch .
I am so stupid excited about this!!
I watched an extended preview as part of a special about the 2nd season on PBS not long ago. Aside from the annoying pledge pitch, it was enough to see what would be next!
More sophisticated fun, lots of heartfelt drama, and wartime.
It is not a coincidence that the most exciting, successful drama series on tv come from the Edwardian era and WW1. Everything was changing, modernising and full of education/science/hope,
So “on the larger stage, the Archduke of Austria is assassinated, touching off a crisis on the Continent” was unbelievably timed. In an era of peace, hope, improvement and Selfridges …comes the War to End All Wars, the greatest tragedy of all time. Selfridges would have been glamorous anyhow, but compared to what followed just a few years later, it stood out like a beacon of progress.
Yes, I think that’s why the turn of the 20th century is so popular right now–the parallels to today are uncanny, plus there’s that mix of old and modern.
