Masterpiece Episode: "Love in a Cold Climate"

Season 31, Episode 12
Episode Synopsis: "Love in a Cold Climate" (Conclusion). Linda's marriage to the communist Christian raises few eyebrows, but Polly's betrothal to Boy Dougdale (Anthony Andrews) raises many. Particularly appalled: Polly's parents (Sheila Gish, John Standing), so they write her out of their wills (a shame for Polly, since they're so rich), and replace her with a Canadian cousin, Cedric Hampton (Daniel Evans), who's no lumberjack. Polly: Megan Dodds. Linda: Elisabeth Dermot Walsh. Fanny: Rosamund Pike.
