Critic Reviews for Poldark Season 4

All Critics (16) | Top Critics (4)

Popular but layered, reflecting on society as well as portraying it, Poldark is arguably what television drama is for.

The return of Poldark is fast becoming an annual cause for early-summer celebration. It's as sure a sign as a budding rose that something ridiculously romantic is about to unfold.

The premiere definitely gives fans what they've been waiting for all these months.

Oct 1, 2018 | Rating: 8.5/10 | Full Review…

Horsfield infuses Poldark's roller-coaster romance plots with dramatic realities, such as economic instability, class struggles, infidelity and political corruption - issues that are surprisingly topical today.

Oct 1, 2018 | Full Review…

It's business as usual, this series premiere, more a continuation of last series than a new departure, which is just how we like it. However uncertain the times, there are still certainties in Poldark's characters.

Oct 1, 2018 | Full Review…

These eight new episodes do not disappoint, and a stark finale sets a powerful stage for a fifth and final season.

Sep 28, 2018 | Full Review…

It's a deep joy to be transported so effortlessly to a time when you could stand reflectively on a Cornish clifftop in an ankle-length cloak...and not see half of southwest London spread out on the beaches below you.

Don't even start on us for getting innocently excited about our beloved Poldark.

Why do I not get what the rest of you all see in this potboiler?

Jun 28, 2018 | Full Review…

Watching the premiere of the fourth series made me feel emotionally polluted, as if I was somehow complicit in its stance that most middle-aged women are raunch-obsessed zombies hooked on Turner's quivering breasts.

Audience Reviews for Poldark: Season 4

  • Jun 18, 2019
    Although it is more of the same which is slightly tedious it starts to heat up towards the end of the season.
  • Mar 09, 2019
    Great acting, fantastic visuals, exciting stories. What more could you want?
  • Feb 02, 2019
    Cornwall is not a "city" as the season info below states.
  • Nov 12, 2018
    Love it to death! Can't get enough of Ross! Hate George, who nails it in the hate department. Love the cinematography all the way down to the clothes. The history is dead on! The Novelist would have been so proud! Well written!
