Episode 7
The whole family feels the repercussions of Francis’s betrayal, although Ross is distracted by a murder that casts suspicion on one of his employees.

Episode 2
Demelza Poldark is expecting a child of her own, but Ross is preoccupied with other news—the wreck of Dwight Enys’s ship off the coast of France. Meanwhile, Demelza’s two younger brothers, Sam and Drake Carne, generate more friction between the Poldarks and the Warleggans.

Disc 2
Episode 5
A daring raid to rescue Dwight from a French jail succeeds—but at great cost. Back in Cornwall, tension fills the Warleggan household after their infant son falls ill; Morwenna is unhappily married off to a vicar; and Aunt Agatha’s final words shock George to the core.

Episode 10
Marital tension pervades the Poldark home, although it’s nothing compared to the rancor between Morwenna and Ossie. Tragedy lurks for Dwight and Caroline, while George finds yet another way to hit back at Ross.

Disc 4

Series 1 (Discs 1-4)
Returning to Cornwall after the American Revolution, Capt. Ross Poldark finds his life at home has fallen apart. His estate is in disarray. His former flame, Elizabeth, is engaged to his cousin. And his family’s copper mines have become targets for the Poldarks’ bitter rivals. Duels, smuggling, and attempted murders unfold as Ross strives to resurrect his fortunes and find true love. This spellbinding saga dramatizes the deep rifts in British society on the brink of industrialization, played out against the rocky, ruggedly beautiful Cornish coast.

 
Series 2 (Discs 5-8)
Capt. Ross Poldark returns in this acclaimed drama set against the spectacular backdrop of Cornwall and a time of upheaval in English history. Discharged from his regiment with marsh fever, Ross finds his home life in turmoil and relations with his wife, Demelza, often strained. The social order is in similar flux, with threats on all sides—from rioters and robbers, the hungry poor, and the ruthlessly ambitious George Warleggan, Ross’s sworn enemy. The second series also stars Jane Wymark, Kevin McNally, and Judy Geeson.

I bought this set because I had enjoyed the T/V series many years ago in England. However, I was NOT happy with the $20 CDN tax I had to pay at the post office. Tjhis did not make it a good buy at all. Maybe you should mention that out of the USA purchases may be subject to duty and taxes. I will not be ordering any more because of this.

This complete set of Poldark is as good or better than I remember from the nights when I banished the family from the TV room and avidly watched the next Poldark episode on Masterpiece Theater. I do miss Alastair Cooke! Through the intervening years I have managed to find in various libraries the later books by Winston Graham and have shared the rest of the story with others who knew the TV series. We were all interested in what happened to Valentine.

Read the books over 30 years ago as a young woman. Loved them! Never had the chance to watch the series,because I was in a rural area and High School at the time it was on. Now, in my 50's and I was so excited to FINALLY be able to watch from start to finish. I enjoyed my evenings with Ross,Demelza and the whole clan very much!! I didn't want it to end. Now I am watching " A woman of Substance" but, I miss my friends in Cornwall, except of course for that evil George Warleggen. Politics sure hasn't changed much. George and his arrogance brings Mitt Romney to mind. Anyway, I will revisit the characters on Poldark in the years to come. I am very glad that I purchased this item.

I have watched Masterpiece Theatre from "The First Churchills" to the present. "Poldark" is by far my most favorite miniseries. It is not just the adventurous,romantic story with its various subplots but the quality of the actors who bring the many characters to life. The costumes, the raw Cornish scenery and the overall slimy earthiness of the time never disappoint. There is so much attention to detail in every episode that it is a feast for all the senses. The bonus "Making Poldark" and historical background features were very interesting. I take great pleasure in recommending it.
