Winter is the perfect weather to snuggle up and binge watch your favorite series, which is why we think boxed sets make great gifts!
I've always been a sucker for PBS shows, especially Masterpiece Theater. Check out two of my favorites that have been released as full series boxed sets just in time for the holidays!
Created by Emmy® Award-winning writer Andrew Davies (Pride and Prejudice, BridgetJones’ Diary), Mr. Selfridge brings to life the story of American entrepreneur Harry Gordon Selfridge, the colorful and visionary founder of Selfridges, London’s lavish department store. Pioneering, reckless, and with an abundance of charm, Harry Selfridge created a theater of retail for early 1900s Londoners, where the latest topics or trends were showcased and traditions were challenged.Starring three-time Emmy® Award-winning actor Jeremy Piven (Entourage) as ‘Mile a Minute Harry’, the brilliant ensemble cast features Amanda Abbington (Sherlock), Tom Goodman-Hill (The Imitation Game), Katherine Kelly (Coronation Street), and Frances O’Connor (The Missing).The critics have hailed the series as “…Downton’s racier cousin…” The Independent, and“… plenty addicting…” The Wall Street Journal.“Mr. Selfridge: The Complete Series” is currently available. The run time of the series is approximately 30.5 hours on 12 discs. The DVD SRP is $89.99
Inspired by the Inspector Morse novels by Colin Dexter, comes the long-running series Inspector Lewis. Inspector Robert Lewis (Kevin Whately) steps out of the shadow of his mentor, the inimitable Inspector Morse, in this highly-acclaimed series of intricate mysteries. Together with his brooding, inscrutable partner, Detective Sergeant James Hathaway (Laurence Fox), they take on the elite criminal underworld of Oxford, England, relying on Lewis’ instinct and Hathaway’s intellect to see past appearances and into the hearts of their upper-crust foes.All eight seasons of Oxford’s favorite detectives, Lewis and Hathaway are included in this complete series box set. The New York Times boasts, “The writing is sharp in terms of its social incisiveness,” and The AV Club declares, “…well-constructed, reliably entertaining…” “Inspector Lewis The Complete Series” is currently available. The run time is approximately 50 hours on 18 discs and has an SRP of $99.99.
