Didn't like BBC's adaptation of Pursit Of Love? Grow up

Purists have been whingeing that Emily Mortimer's version of the Nancy Mitford classic wasn't perfect. There is nothing more boring or performative than this superior literary snobbery.

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 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.

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 is bold, barmy and never boring

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

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?
