Look. Let's be real. This finale wasn't handled well.

Poldark is one of my comfort-food shows, an easy, pretty, and transporting escape to a time and place, the 18th century, where everything was simpler - or, thanks to the writers, everything seemed simpler.

Beneath the ruffles and wigs (Turner's glue-stained curls in this season have been abominable) are stories with real heart, and characters we can fall in love with again and again.

Costume drama at its most spangled and superficial, Poldark is bursting at the seams with simplistic fashion statements.

All in all, a thoroughly enjoyable start to what's almost certain to be an emotionally draining but hugely entertaining final run.

It's silly, eye-roll-inducing and the perfect farewell.
