 Series 3's first two episodes are now up on YouTube. Search for Pdark301 and Pdark302.

It is quite amusing to see the speculation elsewhere on the net about what Series 3 will bring. Of course there is a clear path of where the series should go - walking hand-in-hand with the books. But there is enough out there to make me nervous of changes to the story.

One I have noticed in the last few days is the announcement of the actress to play Rowella. No problem with the actress, on first impressions she looks like she fits the character. The funny thing has been several stories headlined "a new love interest for Ross". What?

Looking into the articles, it seems that one picture shows Ross with Demelza and another mystery character, which has been enough for some ignorant writer to assume that Ross will continue to be forming new liaisons outside of his marriage. One even states that in the novels, Ross has an affair with Rowella!

Has anyone else been looking at some of the "spoilers" out there?


 

 

This sounds like publicity nonsense to draw the attention of the public . . . either by the BBC (which I doubt) or the author(s) of that article.

Now I just have to remember where I watched the BBC episodes online before they showed up on PBS here in the States. It was somewhere on YouTube, I think. Hmmm.

 


 I know someone in the US who watches Poldark as it airs in the UK. I will try to find out how she does that if you are interested.


 Thanks again, Stella.

 Yes I think it is VPN she uses but haven't been able to check yet.

Winston Graham wrote real characters and so they are all flawed as we are all flawed. He didn't write fairy stories smile and many people didn't like the scene between Ross and Elizabeth in series 2. I prefer the characters to be real and flawed and it gives us all plenty of material to discuss, especially as Winston also leaves us to wonder about so many things.

 

 

I agree, Stella. They seem to be trying turn her into a modern woman, which just doesn't fit. WG wrote her as a strong character in herself, and Eleanor Thomlinson plays her strongly - they don't need to add to that. There could be a bit of scope in looking at what's going on while Ross is in France, and the Hugh Armitage stuff will give her some significant scenes to get her teeth into.

One thing that bothers me is that they seem to have been setting up for George to try to litigate over the Wheal Grace shares - I really hope they don't drag that out too much. Please, not yet another court appearance! It's starting to look like they're doing that just to keep Robin Ellis in it.

I think that Mammoth (the company that produces Poldark) would like to produce all the books but it is the BBC who commissions the series. Apparently each series costs £10 so the BBC will want high audience figures to justify spending that money.


 Ah so that's the reason....biggrin


 Oops! I meant £10 million hmm

 We can also look forward to series 4 . Filming will begin in September for that. There is speculation that there could be a series 5. Perhaps the BBC will want to wait for the viewing figures for series 3 before it decides. Those who want more series could help to enthuse people to watch series 3. We may even get all the books dramatised but it will depend on its popularity. The 1970s producers didn't have to worry about this aspect.


I do everything I can to spread the word (here in Australia) but quite a bit depends on how Series 3 develops. There have been hints about continuing the "fiesty" Demelza, which many of us felt was too shrewish and out-of-character. And statements that the storylines may be intertwined more to keep Demelza front-and-centre. I presume that means that the Morwenna-Drake-Ossie-Rowella storyline will have Demelza integrated. It will be interesting to see how they manage that.

Also, there are many viewers (non-book readers) who have started to idolise Demelza, and I wonder if they will be turned off by what happens with Hugh. Book readers themselves will be turned off if they portray the event as revenge. A very fine line to walk.

My sense is that they haven't done enough to promote series 3 in the UK. Time will tell.

I read somewhere that "Poldark" will be airing in the summer rather than the autumn this time. Is that true?

I've seen a couple of the "spoilers" but they're in varying degrees utter rubbish, written by people who don't appear to have any familiarity with the books, just want an excuse to use that pic of Aidan Turner and the scythe! Still, I suppose it's nice to know that there's so much interest.
