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.

Premise: PBS's longest running (and most honored) dramatic series is an Anglophile's delight, featuring British adaptations of literary classics and original works. The first `Masterpiece' was `The First Churchills,' and since then it has won nine Peabodys and 29 Emmys (beginning with Susan Hampshire's Best Actress award for `Churchills'). Its many memorable productions include `Upstairs, Downstairs,' `I, Claudius,' 'The Jewel in the Crown,' `House of Cards,' `Poldark' and `Prime Suspect.'
