Whilst Ross's fortunes prosper despite the Warleggans' new bank opening Demelza's young brothers Drake and the pious Samuel come to stay following their father's death. Also succumbing to the Grim Reaper is Caroline's uncle Ray, who urges her to make a wealthy union, unaware of her secret marriage to Dwight, aided by the Poldarks. When Francis's son Geoffrey Charles shows some spirit against his hated step-father Warleggan brings in Elizabeth's impoverished cousin Morwenna as the boy's governess. When Elizabeth finally gives birth to a son, Valentine, Aunt Agatha curses him for being born under a black moon. This propels Ross into a bargain with George Warleggan. Written by don @ minifie-1

OMG...never a dull moment!!!!
6 October 2017 | by johnm-38132See all my reviews

This show is so perfect you can't find any ways to improve it. The scenery/photography/costumes/sets are ALL a feast for the eyes. Every view is lovely. The pace is just right - a fast moving roller coaster. At one point, there are 3 deaths, a wedding and a birth taking place. It's a period, costume drama set in the late 1700s, but the characters all seem modern and easy to relate to...despite an obvious attempt to add dialogue of the "period". This production is superior to most American movies made in Hollywood's glory days...and certainly better than most American movies. Just a feast for the eyes. Great lighting, scenes, costumes, music, acting, camera technique, sound...everything is spot on.
