Britain is in the grip of a chilling recession... falling wages, rising prices, civil unrest - only the bankers are smiling. It's 1783 and Ross Poldark returns from the American War of Independence to his beloved Cornwall to find his world in ruins: his father dead, the family mine long since closed, his house wrecked and his sweetheart pledged to marry his cousin. But Ross finds that hope and love can be found when you are least expecting it in the wild but beautiful Cornish landscape.

I expected this to be a mindless but fast-paced historical drama. And while it definitely is full of delicious scandal, forbidden love and backstabbing, it's also an incredibly well-written series with some great acting. Standout performances from Aiden Turner and Eleanor Tomlinson.

Love, love, love. Something about the series is to attractive that you cannot wait for the next episode to see how things play out. Plot twist after plot twist, I cannot wait to see what happens next.

Watch this show! If you love period dramas with a romantic strand, then this show is for you. Instead of typing this review, I'd just post and picture of a shirtless Aidan Turner to sway you to watch, but alas I can't (Google it, you won't be disappointed). What started out as a miniseries is now getting a second season, I hope it goes well.

Took a while to get into this. It's watchable but not something I'd watch again. Could do without George in it - he's a smarmy little s**t and I found after the first time the character showed up I wanted to deck him!

What a show and what an actor to play Poldark. I recommend this show highly not just because it is from the Beeb (BBC) but also because it is amazing.

This show is so great, but it can be boring sometimes. I stopped watching after the rape scene in the second season.

I watched the original Poldark and was hesitant at first about a remake. Now it is impossible for me to decide which one is better. I'm inclined to believe that this one is, It manages to capture the more emblematic elements of the 1975 show (Ross' romantic ideals and Demelza's independence) while taking a completely different approach to the story (this series is more serious and heartwrenching, for instance). Let's just hope that we get to see the whole story this time around!
