Poldark

Show Summary

Welcome to the Poldark guide at TV.com. This old British show from the 1970s is a period piece based on Winston Graham's historical novels of 18th century Cornwall. Our hero is an unusual English gentleman called Captain Ross Poldark, who comes home from the War of American Independence to find his sweetheart Elizabeth about to marry his cousin Francis Poldark. Ross sinks into a deep depression. Short of money, he tries mining and other enterprises to make his fortune, nearly always having to fight the upstart George Warleggan - an old enemy who also has designs on Elizabeth. But the big love story of the series is unexpected. While Ross is pining for Elizabeth, he rescues an urchin called Demelza from her dreadful family, and she falls in love with him. Ross only slowly comes to see Demelza as a possible mate. The drama is all played out amid the dramatic scenery of the Cornish coast-line, where smugglers, ship-wreckers, tin-miners and swindlers of various kinds ply their trades. All twenty-nine episodes are now available on DVD.moreless
