Also, wonder if the relationship between Elizabeth and Demelza would have improved or would it have worsened. Difficult to say if Francis and Elizabeht could have redeemed thier marriage. If Elizabeth became more unsettled, would she still have turned to Ross making him even more restless and frustrated. Would the cousins have fallen out again?

Aaaawww.....and very true too. If there was one event that frustrates me in Poldark, it's Francis dying just as things are getting better for him (or so he believed). But if WG hadn't killed him off, how different the storylines would have been! Now that's a good topic for discussion!

 Two words: No Valentine.

Another two words: Frustrated George. Possibly murderous as well?

It's pretty close. They do have a conversation about Elizabeth and Ross's feelings for her. Also how much Demelza has brought to the Poldarks.

"Get rid of the notion that someone has done you a favour by taking you into our family..."

We know what you mean!

THere is a part in the book where Francis and Demelza share a very similar conversation, where he confesses his part in the failure of carnmore copper and Demelza refuses to condemn him for it. He then tells her, that he can see why ROss loves her as he could do so himself. Aw.......

Oh gosh I've just re-read my post - I didn't mean it to sound like it was a wonderful episode BECAUSE Francis was drowned! :(

Hi All,

As some as you may know I'm in the middle of copying the original episodes from VHS (recorded in 1979) to dvd and because that is done in real time, I have to keep my eye on what's being recorded. Which means I need to watch the episodes - AGAIN! How terrible biggrin

Today I was transferring the wonderful episode in which Francis is drowned - remember the bit where he takes the copper samples to Demelza when Ross is out? And he is so lovely to her.....I've always had a real affection for this scene between Angharad and Clive - it is so tender and lovely and sad, considering what happened shortly after.

I haven't read the books for a while - but can someone remind me - is this scene faithful to the book?
