The Pursuit Of Love, episode 2 review

A huge improvement, but Andrew Scott still steals the show.

Review: Pursuit Of Love scattered with endless faults

I never thought I'd be thanking Marc Bolan for rescuing my Sunday night viewing. But that's what happened last weekend. I was dangerously close to hitting the urgent exit required button on BBC1's latest period drama, when Fleabag's hot priest Andrew Scott burst onto the screen dancing to T. Rex's overlooked classic Dandy In The Underworld.

The Pursuit Of Love is bold, barmy and never boring

Her adaptation of Nancy Mitford's novel features subtitles, freeze-frames and loud blasts of T Rex.

The Pursuit Of Love, BBC One review

Nancy Mitford novel makes a smashing small screen transfer.

Matt Wolf, The Arts Desk, 10th May 2021

The Pursuit Of Love review - absolutely glorious

Emily Mortimer's immaculate adaptation of Nancy Mitford's bestseller about the madcap Radlett family is an instant classic. What a magnificent treat to tuck into.

Lucy Mangan, The Guardian, 10th May 2021

The Pursuit Of Love, review

A jolly fun adaptation - just a shame no one told its leading lady.

The Pursuit Of Love review

Lily James pouts, struts and grumbles in this post-Bridgerton period bonkbuster.

Ed Cumming, The Independent, 9th May 2021

Is the BBC cashing in on Bridgerton's sex appeal?

The Nancy Mitford adaptation was ground zero for that Dominic West-Lily James rumour. The Pursuit Of Love's promises a costume drama full of sex and scandal, but how does it compare to Netflix's hit period drama?
