Jeremy Piven is Mr Selfridge

Back on the screen, it’s London, its 1909, and the most important address in fashion’s little black book is but a dust- covered dream strewn on a construction site at “the dead end of Oxford street”.

The most decadent shopping emporium in the city’s history exists only as a fanciful and implausible idea buried within the mind of an ambitious and erratic young man - Harry Gordon Selfridge.

As well as Piven gambolling around setting his store in order, supporting cast members include Zoë Tapper, Ellen Love, Amanda Abbington, Tom Goodman-Hill, Katherine Kelly, Frances O’Connor, and Samuel West.

Mr Selfridge, Series One, comes to DVD and Blu-Ray on 11 March 2013. Watch the trailer below...
