A sensation on PBS and based on the beloved novels of Winston Graham, Poldark tells the story of a gallant English army officer who finds the trials and travails at home every bit as perilous as what he faced in war. The much-loved miniseries follows two rival families whose fortunes cross in an unforgettable saga.
Captain Ross Poldark (Robin Ellis, The Good Soldier) returns in this acclaimed drama set against the backdrop of Cornwall and a time of social upheaval in English history. Discharged from his regiment with marsh fever, Ross finds his home life in turmoil and relations with his wife, Demelza (Angharad Rees, Close to Home), often strained. The social order is in similar flux, with threats on all sides--from rioters and robbers, the hungry poor, and ruthlessly ambitious George Warleggan (Ralph Bates, Dear John), Ross's sworn enemy. The second series also stars Jane Wymark (Midsomer Murders), Kevin McNally (Pirates of the Caribbean), and Judy Geeson (Mad About You).
