I’m trying to decide whether or not to read the Poldark books, because I suspect they’re very different to the new television adaptation!
Poldark seems to be starting in the United States this month, and anybody who loves history, historical romance or anything in between should give it a go. Particularly if you love your historical fiction without quite so much graphic torture and rape as a certain other current show set in Britain in the eighteenth century!
Here is a spoiler-free clip from the beginning of the final episode of season one. It’s a gorgeous show, and ever since Death Comes to Pemberley, I’ve been hoping for this actress to get a big break.
