Editorial Reviews

Love, betrayal, and adventure in a timeless historic drama

"Romance and pure escape" --The New York Times

"Sweeping, swashbuckling, exotic" --The Washington Post

As seen on Masterpiece Theatre

"Raging ambition, terrible betrayals, frustrated loves, daring deeds, and a marvelously dashing hero" --The New York Times

A sensation on PBS and based on the beloved novels by Winston Graham, Poldark tells the story of a gallant English army officer who finds the trials and travails at home every bit as perilous as what he faced in war. The much-loved miniseries follows two rival families whose fortunes cross in an unforgettable saga.

Captain Ross Poldark (Robin Ellis, The Good Soldier) returns in this acclaimed drama set against the spectacular backdrop of Cornwall and a time of upheaval in English history. Discharged from his regiment with marsh fever, Ross finds his home life in turmoil and relations with his wife, Demelza (Angharad Rees, Close to Home), often strained. The social order is in similar flux, with threats on all sides--from rioters and robbers, the hungry poor, and the ruthlessly ambitious George Warleggan (Ralph Bates, Dear John), Ross’s sworn enemy. The second series also stars Jane Wymark (Midsomer Murders), Kevin McNally (Pirates of the Caribbean), and Judy Geeson (Mad About You).

Format: DVD
Series 2 of Poldark is the 1790s. It's British Cornwall delightful; exquisite sets, locations, costuming & dialogue. Robin Ellis continues as Ross Poldark, and winning awards in the process. Writer, Winston Graham, gives us a sensual look at 18th century life in rural, SW England. It's no wonder the show has been considered one of the all-time great Masterpiece Theatre works. It is timeless, one you will watch repeatedly. Angharad Rees is Demelza Poldark, Jill Townsend is Elizabeth Warleggan, & Ralph Bates plays Geo. Warleggan, the villain of the series. You'll laugh at Jud (Paul Curran.)

Two families become rivals in Series one and continue the same through episodes (called parts on the DVD) filled with suspense, ambition, swashbuckling action, romance, humor, heroics, historical drama, betrayal, and just about any other element of passion and emotion possible by bickering families. A saga you will enjoy, and don't overlook Series One, now discounted to a very affordable value.

Series 2 is 13 parts, each almost an hour, all WITH SUBTITLES, and remarkably fine given the fact it was originally aired in 1977. BBC excellence. This second series also provides a different look at Jane Wymark (playing Morwenna) who is known for her role as Joyce Barnaby in "Midsomer Murders." She is good. Morwenna meets Drake (Kevin McNally-"Pirates of the Caribbean") & Judy Geeson is Caroline. Accolades could go on forever for cast and the story. Minimal musical background make "Poldark" seem something of a stage presentation with outlandishly sophisticated sets.

Part (Episode) details:
Part 1-Capt. Poldark returns from the military to find changes. Penrice Estate is now owned by George Warleggan, formerly Ross's Aunt Agatha's who yet lives there.

I AGREE WITH THE PREVIOUS REVIEWER 100%. A 5 STAR ALL THE WAY. WE HAVE OWNED POLDARK SERIES 1 AND 2 FOR A COUPLE OF YEARS NOW AND WE HAVE WATCHED IT A NUMBER OF TIMES, AND WE HAVE LOVED EVERY MINUTE. THIS SERIES IS WORTH EVERY PENNY.

IT IS INTERESTING TO READ ONLINE ABOUT THE ACTORS' LIVES TODAY AND SEE HOW THEY HAVE CHANGED. THE WINSTON GRAHAM WEBSITE IS INFORMATIVE ALSO. THE CHARACTER OF DEMELZA IS LOOSELY BASED ON MRS. WINSTON GRAHAM. SHE WAS FROM THE CORNISH COAST THAT FORMS THE WONDERFUL BACKGROUND FOR THE POLDARK SERIES.

FYI: MR. GRAHAM ALSO WROTE THE BOOK THAT THE MOVIE "MARNIE" WAS BASED ON. HE PERSONALLY CHOSE SEAN CONNERY FOR THE MALE LEAD IN MARNIE. THAT SUCCESS OF THAT ROLE HELPED LAUNCH SEAN CONNERY'S CAREER AS "JAMES BOND".

THE BBC IS FANTASTIC!!!

Have been waiting for this series to hit DVD for thirty some odd years. In my opinion, is arguably the single BEST series BBC ever did.

The video transfer in Series 2 is about as good as it was for Series 1, which was middling good; so if you found that tolerable you'll enjoy this level/limitation of technical attention as well. Both parts of the original 1975-77 BBC broadcasts had an odd mix of videotape and film, and employed a wide directorial/cinematographic range of set shots vs. action filming, with the end result being a high level of unpredictability and occasional perplexity from the viewer's perspective. And the musical background is horrible--essentially unrelated to any action that is ongoing--the series would actually have been far better without the distracting and irrelevant music track.

As for the story, the Graham novels were heavily abridged and condensed for both TV series, with some license taken as to chronology; but overall things flow fairly well. Ross Poldark (Robin Ellis, as suited to the heroic antihero role as Flynn and Bogey were to theirs in earlier decades) is maddeningly inconsistent as a character of his time or any other; he is not just a snob in his own way, but a self-deprecating and rogue snob at that. Even his facial scar seems to wax and wane according to his moods. His temper/actions generally get the better of him; but he seems not to learn from his mistakes in ways that are not totally convincing, given his other purported character attributes. In the second series, with financial stability taken pretty much for granted now (albeit with the occasional and mostly-shrugged-off flirtation with complete insolvency), the Poldarks are now on their way to becoming well-heeled bumpkin-gentry in their own right.

We have just completed viewing this. We did enjoy the series, but have a few issues. We were disappointed in there was nothing about Verity, and her sea captain husband, save for a quick appearance in the first episode. Secondly we do wish that there was more of a clean up at the end. Warleggan standing over the casket, and damning Elizabeth was no way to end the series. I do wish that they follow on and cover the children, and Ross's life. Overall we did enjoy the series.

I just finished Series 1 and can't wait for Series 2 to be out. I watched 30 years ago too and watching the second time was almost better than the first time. This series is definitely the BBCs extreme best ever.

Why is Series 2 higher in price than Series 1?
They figure they'll have gotten us hooked on series 1 (a pretty good bet, actually), so now they can charge us more money for less product for series 2 because we'll want to see the continuation of the story?
