All 20 episodes from the first and second series of the ITV period drama tracing the story of the founder of the famous London department store. In the first series, the year is 1909 and fresh from a successful retail career in Chicago, a dashing Harry Selfridge (Jeremy Piven) arrives in London intent on building the world's largest department store in the capital's Oxford Street. Helped by his association with socialite Lady Mae Moxley (Katherine Kelly), Harry soon has the financial backing necessary for his plans, resulting in the store being completed in record time. But as the company goes from strength to strength, Harry's marriage to his wife Rose (Frances O'Connor) is jeopardised by his continuing infatuation with music hall artiste Ellen Love (Zoë Tapper). In the second series, the year is 1914 and Harry has become even more estranged from his wife Rose, but is ecstatic when she arrives to partake in celebrations for the fifth anniversary of the store's opening. Also, growing tension in Europe has the staff worried that Selfridge might return to the States if war breaks out.
