Masterpiece Episode: "Love in a Cold Climate"

Season 31, Episode 11
Episode Synopsis: Upper-class British life in the 1930s gets a droll sendup in “Love in a Cold Climate,” a two-part adaptation of Nancy Mitford's novels charting the love lives of three young women. Fanny (Rosamund Pike), who narrates the story, spends most of her time with her cousin Linda (Elisabeth Dermot-Walsh), the perpetually lovestruck daughter of the blustering Lord Radlett (Alan Bates). Rounding out the trio: Fanny's friend Polly (Megan Dodds), who's just back from India. Linda's the first to wed, and she does it for love. But it cools quickly. Boy Dougdale: Anthony Andrews.
