    We just finished watching the 2nd Mr Selfridge series - great stuff. Gorgeous sets, and the costumes were sublime. Some of them looked original, even: fine lace, silks, heavy wools, etc.

    I can see we'll have to agree to disagree on this one.

    Corgis in the UK (home of the corgi) are no longer docked.
