Description

1783. Bruised and battered from a costly war with America, England is in the grip of a recession. Nowhere is harder hit than Cornwall, where the jobs and financial rewards of yesteryear have all but dried up. Only the bankers seem to be making any money as debts rise and mines close. Ross Poldark is horrified to return home to find his beloved country as broken as his own heart. In Ross's absence, his childhood sweetheart has married his cousin and best friend. Feeling betrayed by everything he loves - his family, his friends, his country - Ross decides to reopen his mine and provide jobs for the people of Cornwall. Breaking down class barriers in his attempts to build a new life, Ross will find new love but it will also cost him dearly.

Fantastic! Better than expected...

Aidan Turner drew me to watch this series, he’s a brilliant and superbly talented actor. I did think it was going to be one of BBC’s more typical dramas which tend to be the same story told in different ways. However, this was not the case, I got a pleasant surprise.

Good

1. The cinematography is amazing and on par (though different in style) with the likes of Sherlock
2. The storyline is fresh, exciting and complex.
3. The scenery and setting of Cornwall is stunning
4. The dialogue is great and Turner's Poldark portrayal is both interesting and true to the books

Not so Good

1. The Cornish accents weren’t that great
2. Elizabeth is really annoying (I know she’s meant to be) :P

Displaying the best of Cornwall

Not only is this series beautifully set on the Cornish coast highlighting the real beauty that we have here, the cast are great at catching their roles well to how the books describe them. Obviously Aiden helps greatly too but definitely BBCs Sunday night drama matching the like of ITV's Downton!

5 star = a must for a Sunday - well done :)

Was a bit worried when I heard BBC were doing 'Poldark' again. I was so disappointed with the series in the late 1970s as although the actors were fantastic, the fact that the BBC veered wildly of course with the script versus the novels was a complete mystery . I have read & re-read the novels since I was 15 and I am delighted that this series keeps incredibly close to the orginal. I am so pleased with this adaptation and now look forward to each episode. This is a definite 5 star rating from a a Poldark novel nerd.
