Poldark

$39.98
It's 1783, and Ross Poldark has returned home from the American Revolutionary War to find England in the grip of recession and his beloved Cornwall on its knees. His father is dead, his family's land and copper mines are in ruins, and his childhood sweetheart is about to marry his first cousin. Feeling betrayed by everything he loves, Ross must rebuild his life, embarking on a risky business venture, facing new adversaries, and finding love where he least expects it.

Based on the novels by Winston Graham and set against the dramatic Cornish coastline, this striking saga stars Aidan Turner (The Hobbit) as Ross Poldark, Eleanor Tomlinson (Death Comes to Pemberley) as the fiery Demelza, and includes a special appearance by Robin Ellis, who played the original Ross Poldark in the 1970s.

Poldark is amazing!
I bought this a few weeks ago and I've watched the series TWICE. This shoe is so s9 good. I love it. And BBC was great to order from too. Quick shipping and product was in perfect condition. I've ordered before and likely will again!

Review by Kate C; North Bay, ON, Canada (Posted on 10/27/2015)
Poldark then and Now
Well, I guess I'd better review or you'll just keep sending me e-mails to do so. Well, having had a Love Affair (in my head) with Robin Ellis I was anxious to see how the new Mr. Turner fared. I reviewed the old Poldark just to make it fresh in my mind.
The new one is missing some parts, true, but not that it affects the story line at all.
I do think that Mr. Turner travels up and down the Cornwall coast a bit more that Mr. Ellis. Also I would like to know whose idea it was for Mr. Turner to go shirtless? Not that I minded but I do think you stole the idea from Mr. Colin Firth.
This Poldark has a very much better representation of Elizabeth and I can't wait to see what happens there.
Demelza, as well isn't so high flighty with a voice screatching. And I do appriciate Poldark's tenderness towards Demelza in this version. I was never sure if indeed Robin Ellis did infact care for his Demelza.
The frosting on the cake was Robin Ellis's playing the Judge in this series. Robin, you've aged well, wish I could say the same.
I could write more BBC but I didn't pay my license this year (this is a joke)
