Airing – 8th march 2015 (UK) and 14th June 2015 (USA)
Poldark is a brand new story for me, not having read the novels or seen previous adaptations, and it looks absolutely amazing judging by the trailer. It doesn’t hurt Aidan Turner is the star of the series. 😀 I have a fondness for the fun-loving Kili but I’ll take a more brooding man as well.
Ross Poldark returns to England after fighting in the American Revolution. His family and friends thought him dead and moved on. The woman he hoped to marry, Elizabeth, is engaged to his cousin. His father is dead, and the property he has inherited has been allowed to deteriorate. Ross must find a way to restore his house and property, win back the woman he loved or maybe find a new start with someone else. Faced with the harsh conditions in late 1700s Cornwall, he will have to adapt to the growing divide between the rich and poor, the rising prices of food and rent, the unprofitable mining of tin and copper, and create a new life.
