Consuming Passion – 100 Years Of Mills & Boon

BBC4 Sunday 2 Nov, 21:00-22:25 85mins


Funny, moving and very raunchy, Consuming Passion – 100 Years Of Mills & Boon,
written by Emma Frost (Shameless), is a one-off drama that provides an insight
into the world of romantic fiction, seen through the publishing phenomenon of
Mills & Boon. They are two names synonymous with ripping bodices and one of the
most recognisable and compelling genres in literature. So what is behind its
phenomenal success?

Interweaving the stories of three very different women, Consuming Passion sheds
light on the impact and influence the books have had on women\'s lives over the
last century.

Tonight\'s first story, within the 90-minute drama, features Mary, wife of Charles
Boon – the wheeler-dealer who co-founded the publishing imprint with his upright
business partner and trusted friend Gerald Mills. Their decision to take a chance
on the low-brow, high-romance genre proved to be so original and successful that
it went on to alter the course of publishing history. Although Charles was
brilliant at identifying the need for \"romance\" through literature in his
publishing empire, he was less adept at identifying it at home. This story is
inspired by the lives of the actual people behind the scenes.

Janet Bottomley is the heroine of tonight\'s second tale – an ordinary spinster
devoted to her ailing mother at her own expense. Janet\'s life takes a U-turn when
she meets a devastatingly handsome consultant, Dr Grant, who must operate on her
mother. The meeting triggers Janet\'s fantastical yearning for romance and a
comedy of errors ensues, changing her world for ever. This story is inspired by
the real experience of many women in the Seventies, discovering their voices
during a time of social and sexual revolution.

Finally, Kirstie\'s story brings the experience of Mills & Boon up to date. A
university lecturer in literature and feminist studies, Kirstie is in a
stagnating relationship with her partner, Nick. Thwarted, bored and frustrated,
she is lecturing to students on romantic literature and its place within the
literary canon when a sexy young stranger, Jack, enters her life.

Jodie Whittaker plays Mary, Daniel Mays plays Charles Boon, Patrick Kennedy plays
Gerald Mills, Olivia Colman plays Janet, Patrick Baladi plays Dr Grant, Emilia
Fox plays Kirstie, Nick Sidi plays Nick and OT Fagbenle plays Jack.
