Hey zola, thought of you this morning when I was watching my dvd where Ross returns home to Nampara after breaking Dwight out of the french fort.  You know the scene, terribly romantic, lots of passionate kissing 'n cuddling going on, but the hysterical bit is Jud and Prudie playing gooseberry -  'aint never seen er so appy, 'especially where Jud goes on about fetching the brandy before the children and then coming back again, chortling and clearing his throat loudly and handing Ross the invitation to Aunt Agatha's party.  He was by far one of the more memorable characters in the series, a class act and that's for sure.  Demelza's happy smile reminds me of a dolphin (Flipper!)

Hi Minerva and Georgesgirl.

I hadn't realised Morwenna was in Midsommer Murders...Of course.

I am a newbie too,but have been made to feel most welcome.
I have bought all 4 sets of DVDs from E Bay,and have almost finished the 1st 4 books.With the next 2 on the way and I love it all.

I missed Poldark in the 1970s,was busy doing other things...But am making up for it now.
The series gives me a lot of pleasure...As I'm sure it does you too.

My favourite character is Jud.Isn't he a fine actor?

Hope to speak more.

Zolabud.

somehow I don't seem to be able to get this posting thing off the ground, so forgive me for not replying directly to your comments but asking some of my own! I have found series one and two of Poldark in a tiny school in south west Scotland and now desperately want to get the rest .... how many of the series are there ad where can I get them? All ideas greatly appreciated. Minervadoh

smile Hey there Georgesgirl...........sing.gif ! As I always think of George as the horrible Mr Nasty, I'm really glad that someone out there likes him, even baddies deserve to be loved!

You're going to be in good company here talking about all things Poldark to your heart's content.  I hadn't realised that Morwenna was one and the same as Joyce Barnaby, but now I think about it I can recognise her.  Funny how you learn something new every day.  Hope you enjoy spending time on the forum with everyone.

Welcome Georgesgirl, like the name!
Its really exciting time here with lots of new members joining.
The series was/is wonderful but do read the books as they add more depth to all the characters and introduce some new ones. Be prepared for a different version though, there were some major changes made to the tv series especially to the beginning and end.

Many of the cast have gone onto great things, i think Kevin Mcnally (drake carne}has probably done the most varied and visible work eg pirates of the caribean and phantom of the opera and of course trudy styler(emma tregirls) married Sting!

Anyway enjoy all things poldark!

I have been reading the forum for a while and have decided it was about time I took the plunge and posted.

I have always loved Poldark, ever since my mother-in-law ( who is cornish ) got me watching the first episode many years ago.

I have not read any of the books, so cannot compare the series with the books.
Although I love both Ross and Demalza, my long time favourite has always been  George. ( I love a bad lad )

I missed a few of the episodes when it started on History, so I was more than delighted to see it was being repeated in June.
I love seeing the actresses and actors as they are now. It took me quite a while to realise that Morwenna and Joyce Barnaby fron Midsomer Murders were one and the same, and I had forgotten that Christopher Biggins was so good as an actor as opposed to a Panto character. 

I love period drama, two of my all time favourites being Jane Eyre and Pride and Prejudice. ( The BBC adaptions )

My other big passions is anything feline. smile
