Critic Reviews for Poldark Season 3

All Critics (16) | Top Critics (4)

A bit like the average distance between humans and rats, in Poldark you are never far from birth, marriage or death. In this first episode of the third series, there was a full house, the emphasis being very much on death.

At its heart, Poldark is partly a soap - a swashbuckling, Cornish soap - that embraces all of its intrigue, backstabbing, power plays, and affaire de coeur.

The cast is uniformly excellent. Jack Farthing is particularly fine as odious banker George Warleggan.

Poldark is what we critics call a pile of old tosh. And yet, somehow that doesn't stop it from being undeniable if distinctly bonkers fun.

I suppose the angry, starving, proletariat of Cornwall was just waiting for a candidate they could believe in.

Aidan Turner still a magnetic lead, but Series Three feels like the point where the show puts greater emphasis on activities beyond Ross's copper-finding strops, and demonstrates the strengths of an excellent -- and expanding -- ensemble cast.

The honest truth? Can't wait for next year.

Aug 30, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Poldark is, as always, almost bizarrely gripping and entertaining.

Its a tense instalment.

Quite why this absurd Mills & Boon-esque farrago is one of the Beeb's flagship events every time it comes back around is a mystery, though I suppose it's solid proof of the value of giving the viewers what they want.
