Definitely Rufus Sewell! And what about Rupert Penry-Jones...not bad that one.
Speaking of "Ruperts", I've always found Rupert Graves quite the looker. From Maurice to Sherlock he's dreamy.
(And he's guested on Miss Marple and Wallander, and who knows how many other PBS series.)
I've always found Nigel Havers quite attractive, too...from Chariots of Fire, Empire of the Sun, and A Passage to India to Downton Abbey, I've always liked him a lot. He's only 20 days older than I!

Since I just re-watched the exchange between DC Morse and the coroner from Episode 1, decided it had to be uploaded on youtube.

PBS Orders Second Season of ‘Mr. Selfridge’
By LISA DE MORAES, TV Columnist | Monday July 22, 2013 @ 8:00am PDT
PBS has purchased a second season of Mr. Selfridge, starring Jeremy Piven as the American entrepreneur who founded UK’s Selfridge department store. The second season will air on PBS’s Masterpiece Classic franchise in ’14. PBS says the first season was sampled by 15 million viewers over its eight episodes; each episode averaged about 4 million viewers. In today’s announcement, Masterpiece executive producer Rebecca Eaton said, “It is clear from our audience’s reaction that they want more of Harry Selfridge, his family and department store shopping!”
I liked it very much glad it is coming back.
I am really missing Downton Abby.
Ugh. I tried so hard to get into Mr Selfridge, but it started out boring and progressed into full-blown irritating for me. It should have worked, had everything you could ask for in a period drama. But I never developed any care for any character, and the lead guy's work was laughable. Wish they'd scrap it and focus the resources on developing something better.
But they will jump a couple of years into the future for Season 2 (1914), so no telling where the characters will be at that point or who will be with who.
Does a second season of Selfridge mean we get Sam West back? I'd be all for it in that case.

Richard Armitage isn't bad, either but I don't recall him in any PBS shows. Loved him in what I saw of "North & South" which was on Ovation - don't know if they will repeat it or not.
I also do like Matthew Mayfadyen for several reasons, not the least of which is because he reminds me, somewhat, of George Sanders whom I adore. I am really looking forward to the return of "Ripper Street".

I think Macfadyen is okay, but if I were rating just the men of Spooks, never mind all the other shows, I'd probably go 1. Armitage, 2. Peter Firth (yes, Peter Firth -- I find intelligence sexy), 3. Max Brown, 4. David Oyelowo, 5. Robert Glenister (see Peter Firth), 6. Raza Jaffrey, 7. Penry-Jones, ... and then Macfadyen.
