My, hasn't Ari Gold changed... This is Andrew Davies' drama based on the life of American retail magnate Harry Gordon Selfridge, starring Mr. Piven (Entourage) and Katherine Kelly (she used to play Becky McDonald off Corrie). Harry arrives in London in 1908 with a grand plan - to open the biggest and finest department store in the world, and to do it within the year. With a frosty reception from the British press, the last-minute departure of a business partner and an ever-growing staff already on the payroll, not to mention his wife and family arriving from the US, the pressure is on for Harry to complete the project on time. As opening day approaches, he pulls out all the stops to achieve his dream - whatever the cost. Frances O'Connor, Trystan Gravelle, Aisling Loftus and Tom Goodman-Hill also star.
Mr. Selfridge. TV3: 9.00pm
