Tide was nearly full. Mist lay in a grey scarf along the line of the cliffs. .. and they walked home hand in hand through the slanting shadows of the new darkness.
HelloI remember "Poldark" being shown on the BBC when I was a child, although I didn't watch it. I have since read the novels and seen the series repeated on UK TV History (now known as Yesterday). I have also bought the DVDs so that I can watch it at my leisure. I thought it was wonderful. It is still as fresh and engaging as if it was made last year, not over 30 years ago. I suppose that the long standing appeal of the programme is beside the fact that it is well written and well acted that, like any period piece, it does not date. You cannot tell that it was made over 30 years ago.
