Mr. Selfridge is an adaptation of Lindy Woodhead’s biography Shopping, Seduction & Mr Selfridge. This is the second series of the show. The second series is set in 1914 and the lead-up to World War I. Get ready for Mr. Selfridge on ITV starting Sunday, January 19th.
In episode one (of ten), Lady Mae Loxley, played by Katherine Kelly (Coronation Street, She Stoops to Conquer) is thrown off stride by the unexpected return to London of her husband, Lord Loxley, played by Aidan McArdle (Garrow’s Law, The Reckoning). Loxley is an alpha male who creates tensions and animosity at every turn and his unsettling presence threatens to drive a wedge between Harry and Lady Mae.
Based upon the life of flamboyant American entrepreneur Harry Gordon Selfridge, who founded the world‐renowned store on London’s Oxford Street in 1909, the second series picks up the story in 1914 as the store celebrates its 5th anniversary of trading.
Harry, played by Emmy award‐winning American actor, Jeremy Piven (Entourage), is proud of the store’s success but there is no time to rest on his laurels. With rumours rife with talk of war in Europe, he prepares staff for challenging times ahead. The store must play its own part in the war effort and help keep morale high on the home front.
