It's just right for lazy, low-expectation, but dignity-protecting summer viewing.

Poldark has proved such a reliable source of Sunday comfort and joy.

Such is my addiction to this particular genre that I obviously snorted the entire thing. But, as a connoisseur of this junk, trust me when I say it gives a reduced high. It is too in love with Poldark.

Graceful and lithe, setting down layers, introducing characters, and taking its time.

"Poldark" is juicy, romantic, melodramatic storytelling at its most enjoyable.

Poldark manages to ring the changes on an old favourite and yet, for all its widescreen flash and dash, stay true to the traditions of BBC period dramas the past.

With its intriguing cast of tortured souls and master manipulators, and the struggle of some between duty and desire, many equally fascinating stories are being told simultaneously.

Turner-best known as the improbably hot dwarf who romanced Evangeline Lilly in The Hobbit-smolders, the women in his life pine, and there's enough intrigue, plot twists, and back stabs to hook even the most devoted Shonda Rhimes fan.
