Well, I think this looks like being an excellent series! At my very advanced age, it’s not often that I get to say I’m too young to remember something, LOL, but I am too young to remember the 1970s adaptation of the Poldark novels, and I haven’t read the novels either, so I can’t make any sort of comparisons. However, I can say that I thoroughly enjoyed the first episode of this (apart from the silly mascara scar, but nothing’s perfect!). Plenty of drama, interesting characters, glorious scenery … what’s not to like?! All right, all right, it’s not particularly deep and meaningful, but it’s brilliant Sunday night entertainment. Nice one, BBC :-).
