I'm not really basing it on the TV episodes more like speculating where we would think the natural break the story would be and what would be covered in each episodes. In the first series of this new adaptation Debbie Horsfield has change the timeline and the sequence of events, so if we were adapting Jeremy and then Warleggan. How would we go about it? Everything is based on the books. It would be interesting to see what we think will be in the new series and what will not. Then when it comes out, we can compare our predictions against the actual production. I like the way you have spilt it up.
As you're basing everything on the TV episodes and not the books as against differences between the first editions and later ones, it would certainly seem to be the easiest way especially for long term future reference. Then to create new individual episode threads in date order one above the other so that they will always be open for further comments over the long term.
Jeremy Book 3. Episode 4
Jeremy Book 3. Episode 3
Jeremy Book 3. Episode 2.
Jeremy Book 3. Episode 1
This would also allow any last minute changes by the producers as well, however best to wait I think until Mammoth announces things officially.
Just my own thoughts, anyone else have any suggestions....?
The novel Jeremy is divided up into two books and according to Mammoth, Will Sinclair will be the director of first four episodes, could one then assume that each book in Jeremy will be divided into two episodes? If we assume that, it is my belief that the natural break between the two episodes would be Francis' attempted suicide. I realise that this is later in the first book of Jeremy but to me it would seem the most dramatic break and then the courtroom drama would take up all of episode two. Would you agree with these assumptions? Let's set this thread up by episodes and not by chapters. How do you feel about that?
Ah I see what you mean now, so transferred this thread across to Poldark Experts.
Entirely up to you how you wish to set it all up....
What I was hoping for was a discussion of the two books that would be adapted in the next television series, not necessarily a comparison between the first edition and later editions.Yes, there would be spoilers for those whom have not read the books. That is why I suggested having this discussion in, "The Poldark Book Club", Beginners do not enter, thread. If that thread doesn't suit for a discussion of that sort, could you tell me where to start a thread of that nature?
I propose that we start a new book club dealing with the two novels, that the next TV Series will be covering, Jeremy and Warleggan. I have notice that Ross Poldark has been divided by chapters and sticky notes. I am not sure if you would like to do it this way or should we discuss each "book" in the novels and divide them up that way. Some input as to how to begin would be greatly appreciated.
