As we move into the weekend, today I was over on Silver Petticoat adding to their fabulous review archives of period dramas. The particular drama I featured had opportunity to feature was the fourth season of Mr. Selfridge.
Magnificent though it is visually, this was one series I was sure I’d not mourn the loss of. But a funny thing happened as my mother and I watched it. As I watched the final installment, I’ll fess up: I had tears in my eyes. What!? I know, that’s crazy, but ’tis true. The ending was so bitter sweetly beautiful that it simply couldn’t be helped.

Harry is back to his reckless ways which are further exasperated by the unexpected death of the only woman who made him see reason, his mother. With enemies rising up to destroy him, including newspaper baron, Lord Wynnstay (Robert Pugh), it’s only a matter of time before Harry’s foolishness catches up to him. Continue Reading ➔
