Ah yes, Tholly the one armed grave-digger. They really didn't think that one through did they. I'm still pining for lovely John Trevaunance who is a favourite of mine. Will they suddenly introduce Nat Pearce in series four just as he's about to die?

Fantastic responses. "Men in the Sand" has real potential..

Tiffany, I love your Gran!

 

4.  Dear Debbie, would it be too hard to let some of these people work? It feels like poor Dwight is the only one who ever has to earn his living, which is ironic seeing he has just married an heiress. All over the countryside, people are wandering around desperate to find something meaningful to do. We have some apparently working mines, yet all the miners sit above ground - please let them go down and find some ore? Tholly has only managed to dig one grave, and even then Ross took over. Drake is now so much happier that he has found a single pole to heat in the fire, but Sam has forgotten his flock and his God. Poor Demelza has to run all over the country, putting her oar into everyone else's business, because Nampara has been established as an auto-farm. Even when home, she sits listlessly on a hard bench gazing into the fire, desperately wishing that there were some calves to meat, or candles to make.

5.   Dear Debbie, could you please provide a revised map of Cornwall at the start of every episode? I know that in this internet age, we could all look this up on Google Maps, but I attempted that once only to discover that Google Maps/Earth have not been able to keep up with Cornwall's geographical fluidity. As a viewer from overseas, it seems that Nampara, Trenwith, Truro, St Margarets, Grambler etc are now all within one half hour walk of each other, which makes me think that Cornwall has shrunk. Is Devon expanding its borders, and squashing Cornwall into the sea?

6.  Dear Debbie, could you please stop listening to viewers whose only criteria of a good show is how many times they view a male torso? If you can't manage that, then maybe it is time to consider a career move into a different genre of the media.

 Yes, it is. It made me laugh, and then the monstrosity on TV doesn't get to me as much. Still hate it though.

Hey Debbie, what's up.  I watched the poldark show even though I live in New Jersey. My boyfriend Chris was able to hook up the Internet so I can watch it. Turns out my Gran watched the show in the 70s. I didn't even know they had TV back then. Anyway, she told me that there are these 12 Poldark books.  wow!!!  I'm not gonna read them tho cuz I don't like to read old stuff. Or long stuff. So Gran said that Elizabeth dies in one of the books and I was wondering if you could change that for the next series. Gran said you changed everything else from the book anyway. Maybe you could change that, too. And like you can do a hunger games/survivor thing where there's a team Elizabeth and a team Demelza And whoever wins the competition gets Ross. And you can have people voting by phone so that you could change the story as you go along.  There could be a fashion competition and maybe a female wrestling competition. I think my boyfriend would like that.   Or if Elizabeth has to die, maybe she can be a vampire instead? Anyway, you can do whatever you want. Gran said that already you did that so far.  Just wanted to tell you I really like the series so far. I don't have to pay that much attention and I know what's going on. I can text and do my Facebook and instagram when poldark is on and I can still follow. There's a lot of fighting and yelling so it's easy.  Love that Ross actor but maybe he can stop wearing a shirt at all. Great censored.gif bod.

Tiffany

Dear Debbie,

What about creating a spin off series to capitalise on the success of series three? Spin off series are so popular these days. 

One of them could be called 'Men in the Sand' and focus on all the nasty men getting nastier. They would meet regularly on the beach (that way you can keep the scenic locations) to discuss their nastiness and how to encourage more men to join them. Their mentor would be Prudie (an honorary man for the series) whose advice they would follow, causing them to wreak havoc across Cornwall. Even Dwight would be dragged into all this, with Prudie tempting him to break his Hippocratic oath. Of course Ossie and Hugh would be there, boasting about their 'ways with women.' Even though they all hate each other there would be a strange camaraderie and an unwritten rule of restraint whilst on the beach.

Series 3 has really provided an excellent basis for all the above to be embraced with open arms by the viewing public. However, the increased levels of sex and violence would mean a later time slot or even a move to HBO/Sky Atlantic.

In the UK, August is known as the Silly Season.  That is the only reason I can think of for Episode 9 being as it was!

(Time for some palate-cleansing fun)

Dear Debbie,

Now that Poldark Series 3 has been put to bed, you must be wondering how to go about putting the next series together. It must challenge your creativity to do this again, given that you have no manual to follow.

We, as fans of the series, would love to help you by giving a few tips that might help you get started.

  1. Dear Debbie, could we please hear the characters speak? Oh yes, I know that the actors have voices because we have heard them yelling at each other, but they seem to be having trouble sustaining conversations beyond a few lines. Maybe it is because they have such an onerous burden trying to remember the dramatic exit they have to make in a moment. A secret tip: there is a series of novels which seem to have almost a similar theme to your series, which might give you some guidance. The author passed away a while ago, so I am sure that he will not mind if you plagiarise some of his dialogue. Just PM and we can give you the name of the novels.

2. Dear Debbie, I think we might have to face the fact that Joe Makeascene from Truro Musical Society is becoming a little out of his depth in the crowd scenes. It might be time to employ someone different - maybe someone from Monty Python is free (I hear John Cleese is a bit challenged for work at the moment). You will probably need to increase his budget a little - eight extras is a little unconvincing for a riot. Joe Makeascene was also having trouble (not surprising, at age 96) remembering which beach to use for which event. Maybe someone could record that for future reference - maybe in a little notebook just for the purpose?

3. Dear Debbie, I worry about the need to drug all the babies on the show? I understand it is necessary to have them compliant and bland, but surely Social Services are not totally on board with this? It must be so difficult, when you want the baby to be crying as part of the script, because then you have to cover them up or turn them away so that the camera does not catch the glassy-eyed stare. I also wonder if Social Services know that Clowance and Jeremy roam abandoned most of the time - the servant seems to make some attempt, but the mother is totally neglectful.

4. Dear Debbie,.........

 

 

(...please feel free to add. I have more but I will save them for later.

Disclaimer: Not everything may be laid at Debbie Horsfield's feet, but if she wants to claim the glory, then...)
