Popular ITV drama Mr Selfridge, inspired by the life of charismatic American retail entrepreneur, Harry Selfridge, returns to ITV for a fourth and final series.
Originally based on the novel ‘Shopping, Seduction and Mr Selfridge’ by Lindy Woodhead, the new series is set in 1928, nearly a decade after the events of series three, as Harry Selfridge is enjoying the roaring 20’s at the pinnacle of his wealth and celebrity. Will Harry take a dramatic fall and fritter his money away in the glamourous casinos, or can he hold on the empire that he worked so hard to create?
Jeremy Piven (Entourage, Smokin’ Aces) takes the starring role of Harry Selfridge alongside a supporting cast of Katherine Kelly (Coronation Street), Tom Goodman-Hill (The Imitation Game, Everest), Ron Cook (Chocolat, Hot Fuzz), Amanda Abbington (After You’ve Gone, Sherlock), Amy Beth Hayes (Eva, Insoma), Trystan Gravelle (Anonymous, One Chance) and Sacha Dhawan (After Earth, The History Boys).
The Mr Selfridge team returned to The Historic Dockyard Chatham to film the exteriors of the Oxford Street store. They also filmed at Kingsgate Bay where two characters walk along the beach.
Set on the River Medway, The Historic Dockyard Chatham is a popular film location offering Georgian and Victorian architecture, maritime environment, dry dock, cobbled streets, and industrial buildings. The Historic Dockyard Chatham has previously featured in productions such as Victor Frankenstein (2015), Jekyll and Hyde (2015) and Great Expectations (2012).
Kingsgate Bay is a beautiful sandy beach surrounded by chalk cliffs in Broadstairs. The Thanet area has welcomed filming from projects including The Lady in the Van (2015), Eastenders (2015) and Die Another Day (2002).
Don’t miss the final series of Mr Selfridge, which starts on Friday 8th January 2016 at 21:00 on ITV1.
