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 »

A Masterpiece Theater Gem
30 August 2006 | by lycanjunkSee all my reviews

When this "mini-series" first aired in the U.S. I was in junior high school and waited eagerly for each weekly episode to air on our local PBS station. Now, as an adult, I still find it completely engrossing and entertaining, only now on my DVD whenever I desire.

"The Poldark Saga" captures the struggles of an 18th century Cornish family, both economic and social, with characters that one can grow to love and cherish. This was a ground-breaking series in the 70's, taking the action off of the sound stage, and on to location. As the series progresses, the outdoor scenes improve, adding the rugged beauty of Cornwall to the cast of characters. This is a lovely series, and highly recommended for anyone who loves a costume drama that is truly British.
