Poldark - Series 2, Part 2 (DVD)
Second part of the second series of this Cornish drama. As the turn of the century draws closer, Ross is detached from Demelza after getting together with Armitage. George Warleggan, now a political success, discovers the pleasure of his marriage to Elizabeth vulnerable after a chance remark. Starring Robin Ellis, Angharad Rees, Clive Francis, Jill Townsend and Gregory de Polnay.There have been numerous British period pieces on television, but Poldark may be the most adored of all. This costume drama, set in the 18th Century, was created on the Poldark novels by Winston Graham and shown the life and loves of Captain Ross Poldark, an aristocrat returning to his home in Cornwall after rebelling in America's War for Independence. The mostly socio-economic message of Poldark expresses the unfair differences between the deprived and the rich, and Poldark is frequently seen at odds with associates of his own class. This incredible series was praised for having extraordinary outdoor arrangements and superior acting. Above all, Poldark is an energetic, appealing historical drama.
