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).

I saw part of Upstairs,Downstairs a while ago and I didn't think it wore too well. The filming,costumes and sets looked dowdy. Poldark holds up much better.
This second half of the series is very action oriented. There are some new plot lines as well. In particular the interaction among Jeffrey Charles, Elizabeth's cousin Morwenna and Demelza's brother Drake is very nice.
Any Poldark fan will enjoy it. Anyone who enjoys period dramas and hasn't seen it, should give it a try. The film is rather dated but the performances are so enjoyable.
