We finished the first series of Poldark on May 17th of this year.
We had taken a break about halfway through the season, reaching the point where most of the characters are in a state of general happiness.
What does that mean? When everyone’s happen you KNOW things will go wrong. Terrible wrong. Inexplicably wrong.
That did happen, but it was worth the watch. A view of the time period through the eyes of investment and commerce and how those things affect not only the individual but the entire community was a different angle on this type of drama and I really appreciated that.
A disappointing finale (ruined by the last scene, which reminded and summed up the negatives we had felt throughout the season) pointed in a direction that meant Currer and I won’t be continuing the series but as I said – it was worth it.
