Hi Bronny,

Actually I am South Australian. Lived in Adelaide till 11. I am from Cornish stock so Poldark feels like a family history. My maiden name was Pearce, no maybe Nathanial Pearce could have been a relative.

My grandparents used to tell me our cornish anncestors were 'Mooncussers'

They cussed the moon being out  full as it made ship wrecking easy to spot. I don't know if that is a correct term. Maybe someone can confirm it for me.


 Ah yes many of us here in SA have Cornish blood - me too! Mind you I have just about every British heritage except for Scottish (as far as I know).

Thank you all for your warm welcome.
I finished Making Poldark in a flash. It is the 1987 version, so I too will look forward to the update.
Robin could have almost made his book as long as a Poldark novel if he had wanted. I'm sure there must be MUCH more to tell. He just touched the surface.

Welcome Heather! You have arrived at quite an exciting time in the forum. Its been very busy here recently and we are having lots of discussions. Robins Making Poldark is due to be reissued and so we will no doubt be chatting about that. Please feel free to join in any of our previous chats, even if they are old threads, we love to go over poldark again and again and its always interesting to hear someone elses opinion and thoughts on this wonderful saga!

Jane - no the new Making Poldark isn't out yet - this month I think. Although someone posted on one of the Poldark Facebook pages that it has been released (not so) - apparently he has written about why there wasn't a third series and loads more photos too - looking forward to it!

Hi Heather and welcome - yes as Ross says both Smollett (Teni) and I are in Australia too - in Adelaide. I notice you are in Melbourne.
You will love it here!

Hi Heather and welcome aboard, we always love to have new members join us to talk about our favourite subject and anything relating to it.  Hope you'll enjoy joining in with the discussions and look forward to chatting with you soon ... how about joining in with our new book club which is kicking off this week, we have started by reading the first chapter of 'Ross Poldark' and I think discussions start off on Sunday ... should be fun!

Welcome, Heather!  I agree, Poldark is an addiction!  I'd love to see more novels too, but unfortunately, WG has gone on to his Reward.  Maybe some of his descendants might consider writing a few sequels?

Welcome to you, Heather.

If you have read much of the posts, you will know that we all are totally addicted to all things Poldark.

It is lovely to hear you have read the books - many reach this site having become enamoured with the TV series first and read the books after.

Your copy of Making Poldark - is it the new edition or a copy of the 1987 one?  An update is available - not sure when - but very soon.

Do come round to Nampara kitchen for a dish o' tay, me de-er.  Any time you be passin' - an'  I'll save a slice o' pie for ee!

Jane Gimlett

I have just finished reading the 12 Poldark novels. Whilst I was tracking down the 'Making Poldark' Book by Robin Ellis on the internet, I came across this site and was amazed there are so many people who also loved these books enough to form a society. I received my copy of Making Poldark today, so I intend to dive into it tonight. Poldark is like an addiction. You just want more. 12 novels were not enough.
