Award-winning actor Jeremy Piven (Entourage) leads the cast as Harry Gordon Selfridge in new drama series Mr Selfridge, about the life of the flamboyant and visionary American entrepreneur.
Created by multi-award winning writer Andrew Davies, Mr Selfridge tells the story of ‘Mile a Minute Harry’, a man with a mission to make shopping as thrilling as sex. Pioneering and reckless, with an almost manic energy, he created a theatre of retail where any topic or trend that was new, exciting, entertaining – or sometimes just eccentric – was showcased.
MR GROVE speaks at the Heads of Department emergency meeting. The pressure is on as lots of decisions need to be made and MR GROVE is having trouble managing the situation. MISS RAVILLIOUS brings up the suffragette demo telling a flippant MR GROVE that he needs a strategy to deal with it - They can’t just ignore it. When MR PEREZ points out that the suffragettes lunch at the Palm Court on that day MR GROVE tells him to cancel it.
It falls to VICTOR to tell LADY MAE that the Suffrage lunch is off. She’s furious and goes to speak to MR GROVE. LADY MAE interrupts a private moment between him and MISS MARDLE in his office and urges MR GROVE to reconsider his decision to cancel the lunch. He sticks to his guns and LADY MAE tells him that she can’t be responsible for the militant actions of some of the women.
