Love in a Cold Climate is a British television serial drama produced by the BBC in association with WGBH Boston, and first broadcast in two parts on BBC One on 4 and 11 February 2001. The serial was adapted by Deborah Moggach from Nancy Mitford's novels The Pursuit of Love and Love in a Cold Climate, and was directed by Tom Hooper. It stars Rosamund Pike as Fanny, Elisabeth Dermot Walsh as Linda, Megan Dodds as Polly, Alan Bates as Uncle Matthew, and Celia Imrie as Aunt Sadie. Further roles are played by an all-star cast. The production staff researched the nature of Mitford's novels by interviewing her surviving sister Deborah. The serial was accompanied by an Omnibus profile of Mitford and a documentary series entitled The Mitford World on BBC Knowledge. Love in a Cold Climate was nominated for two British Academy Television Awards; Bates was nominated for Best Actor, and the production team received nominations in the Costume Design and Production Design categories. A previous mini-series adaptation of Love in a Cold Climate was broadcast in 1980, starring Judi Dench, Michael Aldridge and Vivian Pickles.

An eight-part adaptation of two classic novels by Nancy Mitford, and starring Judi Dench, Michael Williams and Michael Aldridge, Love in a Cold Climate presents the English upper class of the Twenties and Thirties as seen by one of its most gifted chroniclers. The series traces the unconventional lives and loves of the family of Lord Alconleigh, dominated by the eccentric, irascible Uncle Matthew - an affectionate and only lightly embellished caricature of the Mitford siblings father, Lord Redesdale. With several scenes drawn from Nancy Mitford s childhood memories (not least her father s alarming penchant for hunting his children with a bloodhound), the story also encompasses the economic and political crises of the Thirties and the upheavals of the Second World War, which would ultimately bring to an end the privileged world inhabited by the family. Love in a Cold Climate was adapted by novelist and dramatist Simon Raven, and directed by Donald McWhinnie (Rumpole of the Bailey).
