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.
Earnest Shackleton meets Harry at the store – he’s here to do a lecture about his expedition – and it’s causing huge excitement.
At the family home, Rosalie receives flowers from Roddy – furious with Roddy, Rose sends them back to him, but this upsets Rosalie. Rose has no choice but to explain the situation to Harry. He’s angry that Roddy has been to their house – and is suspicious of Rose.
Back at the store, Rose and Harry are at the exhibition for Shackleton – but see that Roddy is there talking to Rosalie. Harry threatens Roddy, telling him to never come into contact with his family again – but not before Roddy informs Harry that Rose was in love with him – and that Harry should be more careful about the people that he holds dear...
