A sensation on PBS’s Masterpiece Theatre, this spellbinding saga tells the story of the gallant Captain Ross Poldark (Robin Ellis, The Good Soldier) in 18th-century Cornwall. Based on the novels by Winston Graham, this classic drama teems with adventure and romance, set against the spectacular backdrop of the ruggedly beautiful coast.
In Series 1, a wounded Ross returns from the American Revolution to a family who thought he had perished in the war. He finds that his father has died in his absence, the woman he loves is engaged to his cousin, and a viperous businessman is plotting to ruin his family. Series 2 follows Ross through further tumultuous times, from saving his marriage to reclaiming his fortune as he attempts to defeat his predatory rival once and for all.
