EPISODE 5: Business carries on at Selfridges, where German-made goods are being replaced with English products. Harry organizes a patriotic concert to benefit the troops, featuring a popular music hall tenor (portrayed by Alfie Boe) who gets Lady Mae (his former stage partner) to join him. Miss Mardle's new lodger, a Belgian violinist, also participates in the concert, raising some eyebrows. Amid the festivities, a complex drama unfolds that sets the future course of events for Henri and Harry—all while the unsuspecting audience sings “It’s a Long Way to Tipperary.” It’s a very long way indeed.
Mr. Selfridge stars Jeremy Piven (Entourage) in the title role, with Frances O’Connor (Madame Bovary) as Rose, Aisling Loftus (Page Eight) as Agnes, and Amanda Abbington (Sherlock, Season 3) as Miss Mardle, together with a galaxy of amazing actors who can rouse any audience.
