Trivia

Robin Ellis and Angharad Rees were lined up to reprise their characters in the attempt to reboot Poldark (1996), but producers HTV reneged on their promises and recast the parts, much to the disappointment of long-term fans who actually staged a physical protest against the decision. See more »

Great series with much accurate eighteenth century history of Cornwall woven in.
17 March 2005 | by See all my reviews

Romance, drama, Cornish history including the mining, the smugglers, shipwrecks, it has it all! I own the whole series, Poldark and Poldark 2. Just finished going through them both for the second time on video plus saw the originals on TV in the seventies. Hopefully they will appear on DVD soon.

The IMDb page seemingly lists all the characters/actors, even the bit players with little or no speaking parts. Something puzzles me here: One of the more important characters was a Dr. Behenna, played by Hugh Dickson. The character appears prominently in most, if not all, episodes and his part is essential to the plot. Strangely, this character is not even mentioned by IMDb - or by Amazon. Even more strange is that a look at the IMDb page for Hugh Dickson makes no mention of his part in Poldark or Poldark 2. Anybody have an explanation?
