The BBC are masters of the book to TV adaption.

When is The Pursuit of Love able to be streamed online or watched on telly?

After only recently dropping the trailer for The Pursuit of Love, the BBC was kind enough not to make us wait too long for the first episode of the show to air. You can stream the first episode of The Pursuit of Love on the 9th of May 2021.

Nancy Mitford's had a knack for exploring broader issues with her clever writing, so we are interested to see how the adaption of The Pursuit of Love plays out onscreen.

The book, which has become a treasured work since its release in 1945, tells the story of aristocrat Linda Radlett and her best friend Fanny. The romantic comedy-drama is set in Europe between world wars and follows Linda's adventures at a time where social and political divisions split the nation. Questions about freedom, love and sex are explored through the characters in a humorous and unique way.

Who is in the cast of The Pursuit of Love

Written and directed by Emily Mortimer, the series' glittering cast includes some of Britain's biggest names. The BBC recently announced that Lily James plays the charismatic and fearless heroine, Linda Radlett, in the new BBC One adaptation. Lily is known for her TV roles in Downton Abbey and War & Peace.

Emily Beecham will be portraying the part of Fanny and we couldn't think of anyone better for the role. Emily is best known for her role as The Widow in the American series Into the Badlands.

You know if Andrew Scott is involved, a TV show is going to be good. The actor of Sherlock and His Dark Materials fame plays Lord Merlin. Andrew Scott always brings so much energy and nuance to his roles, and we are excited to see how the relationship between Lord Merlin and Linda is portrayed.
