It's being shown starting this Sunday on U.S. PBS stations. According to one reviewer: It took two tries, but "Masterpiece Theater" has gotten a vintage shopping show right. Very right. In contrast to PBS' disappointing "Mr. Selfridge," this new period drama set in the early days of department stores sparkles and shimmers.
Mr. Selfridge did not spark my interest (unlike the vintage HOUSE OF ELLIOT, which I watched on Netflix) -- but this new offering about "The rise of retailing in 19th-century England" sounds right up my alley.
I've linked the NEW YORK TIMES review below.
