He finds that because he was believed dead, his home has fallen into ruin and his estate has shifted to his mercenary uncle following the death of his father. His uncle has committed to selling the family copper and tin mines to a ruthless local land baron while his former fiancee has agreed to marry his cousin in his absence.

Trivia

The sheer brown gown with white embroidery worn by a guest at the London ball is the same costume worn by Faith Brook (Countess Rostova) in War & Peace (1972), by an extra at the London Ball in Poldark: Episode #2.2 (1977), and by Kelly Hunter (Lady Steyne) at the Prince Regent's party in Vanity Fair (2004).

Is that all there is?
15 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

We were left waiting for the next sequence. The VHS tape started to crackle and we knew there was no more! What happens next? Surely they aren't going to leave us up in the air like this! The actors who played Poldark and Sir George could have been played by twins. We couldn't tell them apart. The scenery and costumes are lovely, but the "gentlemen" are all like cardboard cutouts. The flaming red hair of Clowence made for some spectacular photography, but she didn't have a range of expression. The most interesting character was Mrs. Poldark, full of fire and intelligence, and you wondered how she and the stuffed shirt Poldark ever got together! Like eating popcorn, it left us empty.
