This all-new version of the vintage Masterpiece series stars Aidan Turner as Capt. Ross Poldark, a redcoat returning to Cornwall after the American Revolutionary War, only to find his father dead and his true love about to marry someone else. A Mammoth Screen production, the series is packed with action, adventure and romance. Also featured are Eleanor Tomlinson as servant Demelza, Warren Clarke as Uncle Charles, and Heida Reed as Elizabeth Chenoweth. Robin Ellis, who portrayed Ross Poldark in the original adaptation 40 years ago, appears here as Reverend Halse.
“Poldark” is reasonably good stuff, milking the emotions and pleasing the eye without unduly insulting the intelligence...Packing two historical novels into eight episodes means that things move quickly, and in the first few weeks alone you can expect a full catalog of perils and palpitations...The virtue of “Poldark,”...is that it never gives you time to stop and think, and it avoids predictability through its abundance of plot. Nothing stands out (including the blandly pretty cinematography and insistent music), but it’s saucier than the sum of its parts.--Mike Hale, The New York Times, June 19, 2015
