  7. Love in a Cold Climate

    Love in a Cold Climate

    Bestselling author Nancy Mitford's novels "The Pursuit of Love" and "Love in a Cold Climate" draw on her own experiences as a child of Britain's aristocracy between the two world wars. Adapted by Simon Raven (The Pallisers, Edward & Mrs. Simpson), this eight-part Masterpiece Theatre presentation stars Oscar winner Dame Judi Dench (Iris), Michael Williams (A Fine Romance), Michael Aldridge (Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy), and Vivian Pickles (Harold and Maude). Linda Radlett (Lucy Gutteridge, A Christmas Carol), daughter of Lord and Lady Alconleigh, follows her heart in and out of adventures, marriages, and dalliances, much to the dismay of her parents. Her dear friend Polly Hampton (Rosalyn Landor) maintains a cooler head (and some say, a colder heart) in her romantic entanglements. Seamlessly weaving together the two women's tangled love affairs, this "literate...and entertaining" (People) drama is set against a backdrop of the English nobility's golden age, and a looming world conflict that would alter that life forever.

    This show, created by Donald McWhinnie, Judi Dench and Michael Aldridge, scores 7.7 on IMDb.

  8. Casanova

    Casanova

    The Italian adventurer and libertine Giovanni Jacopo Casanova lived from 1725 to 1798, but in this six-part series Dennis Potter attempted to find a contemporary relevance through his central themes of sex and religion. He commented that Casanova "was concerned with religious and sexual freedom, and these are the things we have to address ourselves to now." Casanova was imprisoned in Venice in 1755, and Potter used that event as a central device, constantly inter-cutting to contrast Casanova's amorous escapades, radiant, joyful and brightly lit, with his oppressive solitary confinement in the gloom of a half-darkened cell.

    This show, created by Mark Cullingham, Frank Finlay and Norman Rossington, scores 7.8 on IMDb.

    Genres - Drama
