The soundtrack for this show exudes excitement - I just love it. I love watching history come alive and I adore learning about clever entrepreneurs who live their passion and serve the greatest good. Mr Selfridge, played by the handsome & charming Jeremy Pivens, designed the department store as we know it, in London, early in the 19th century, after becoming a self-made, extraordinarily successful business man in Chicago. His amazing wife & mother of their 6 children, has been transforming from her traditional role as mother & loyal wife in season 1 to taking charge of her own life and honoring her feelings & desires throughout season 2. She's played by the talented & beautiful actor, Frances O'Connor.
Mr Selfridge was a huge change-maker, as he brought joy, personal freedom for shoppers, sales bargains, valued products from other cultures around the world & served all classes of society. The show follows his creation of his original idea of how best to serve customers rather than the store's bottom line, and follows through the challenging & changing times and how he rises to exceed every one of them, consistently maintaining his high values.
