Critic Reviews for Poldark: Season 3

All Critics (16) | Top Critics (2)

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.

June 21, 2018 | Full Review…

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.
