Mr Sel­fridge

The Irish Mail on Sunday - TV Week - - YOUR TV WEEK -

With such a glam­orous and event­ful life and ca­reer, the re­tail mag­nate Harry Gor­don Sel­fridge makes an ideal sub­ject for tele­vi­sion. And so, we re­turn to London’s Ox­ford Street for the third ten-part se­ries of the drama re­volv­ing around the charis­matic founder of what re­mains one of the most fa­mous depart­ment stores in the world. This first episode picks up events in 1918, some months after the tragic death of his wife Rose, and Harry Sel­fridge (Jeremy Piven) has a wel­come dis­trac­tion when his el­dest daugh­ter, Rosalie (Kara Toin­ton), mar­ries Rus­sian avi­a­tor Serge de Bolotoff (Leon Ock­enden), el­dest son of the aris­to­cratic Princess Marie Wi­asem­sky (Zoë Wana­maker). But, be­fore long, what ini­tially seemed a good match soon starts to give the busi­ness­man cause for con­cern. Tonight, 9pm, UTV.

We do: The new se­ries opens with bride and groom Rosalie Sel­fridge and Serge de Bolotoff (played by Kara Toin­ton and Leon Ock­enden)
