Sunday night sees the return of the rather delectable Jeremy Piven to our screens as the huge TV hit Mr Selfridge returns for its third series. I’m a huge fan of Harry, and of the series in general, so I have to admit to rather looking forward to its welcome return.
The new series will kick off in 1919, with Harry mourning his wife Rose. The real Rose died in 1918, when the First World War had not yet ended, but the series transports the death forward in time. Frances O Connor has left the series, but we have new cast members in the shape of Kara and Hannah Tointon who are playing Harry’s daughters. The new series promises to be as glossy and glamorous as previous affairs, starting with a wedding as Rosalie Selfridge (Kara) marries a Russian Prince, a romantic match that might not be as fairytale as it seems, not least because Prince Charming is penniless and see’s Rosalie as a meal ticket.
The series looks set to be another smash hit, as Harry’s life unfortunately begins to spiral out of control. Jeremy Piven is a charismatic actor par excellence, and I can’t wait to watch him get his acting chops around the downfall of this great man. And, from a fashion point of view, the stunning images from Rosalie’s wedding are getting me very excited about the series reaching the 1920s.
As ever, when a series of Mr Selfridge hits our screens, our modern-day Selfridges put together an edit of products to celebrate it hitting our screens, containing iconic images, food and drink products.
Here are some of my favourite picks from this seasons Mr Selfridge edit.
