I watched this (thanks for bringing it to our attention) and was surprised by the inaccuracy, especially from Aiden. Maybe I am too close to the books, but DH's clumsy and modern sounding prose is so obvious to me, when put up against WG's.

It also confirmed to me how much input ET has to the script. She clearly showed insider knowledge, as if she was hanging over DH's shoulder when the words were written. And I felt a vibe from her that she admired DH's lines more. "Oh, that's Debbie's!" exclaimed in a triumphant voice.

I was impressed by Christian Brassington. For a character who enters the story quite a way in, I got the impression that he has actually read WG, probably right from the start. He gave me the impression that he takes his roles very seriously and does his research thoroughly. He not only knew many, but knew them with confidence, not just guessing. Good on him.


He was also willing to gain 30 pounds for the role, which also shows real dedication.

But Max Bennett still impresses me more. His character is new this season and far removed from the previous action so he has really gone above and beyond.

That is always the curse of trying to make a book into a series on TV/film.  Time, Money, Egos are big constraints on doing this conversion completely.

We who read the books, and not just the Poldarks ones, are so fortunate that we took the time and effort to do so. I really believe we are greatly rewarded in doing so.

I found the following link at YouTube: 
 
https://youtu.be/gDhxGp8uWMg
 
In it, nine members of the "Poldark" cast -- Aidan Turner, Eleanor Tomlinson, Jack Farthing, Heida Reed, Tom York, Elise Chappell, Christian Brassington, Josh Whitehouse and newcomer Max Bennett (Monk Adderley) -- try to identify the sources of 10 lines of dialogue from the series, Winston Graham, Debbie Horsfield or the ringer (Nat King Cole/"Moulin Rouge").  
 
Only one, Eleanor Tomlinson, was able to get all 10 correct. And how's this for awkward: The newcomer, Bennett, finishes second (7 right, 3 wrong) in a three-way tie with Jack Farthing and Christian Brassington. Or is it fitting that all three villains finish together?
