News & Interviews for Poldark: Season 3
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.
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.
Poldark made a welcome return to form, with rather less of the depressing porridge of poverty that sluiced through the last series.
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.
