I taped it too. Glad to hear the good review. And more detail - I knew last night was the beginning but didn't know how long it lasted.
Have been watching Mr Selfridge. Not really caring for Mr Selfridge himself (kind of an issue as he's the star. I don't really think it's the actor but more the character. He just seems to flounce about making pronouncements about how everything is wonderful and grand and they need to make a splash by doing other big and grand things). But I do like Ms Towler and the French window dresser (though I don't want them to get together).
Continue to enjoy Midwife but miss Chummy. Kind of interesting how both of the more unusual women have beaux (Chummy and her husband and now Jane and the Reverend) but Jenny doesn't (well, aborted relationship with Jimmy, notwithstanding) and Cynthia and Trixie haven't been shown to have suitors either (though the preview suggested that is going to change for Trixie).
