No argument here :) She's one of my favourite actresses. I didn't really know her before Poldark, I'm a tad too young to have known her at her peak. I think it must have been very hard to be an actress of her age in the seventies, the material largely was pretty poor, you were lucky to get a Poldark etc. Then she went off to America and married a complete <insert expletive here> and it seems she never really recovered from that. The last I heard her shop had closed and the house that she fought so hard to keep was sold. I hope it was for good reasons. 

So come back here Judy. New Poldark needs you! Wouldn't it be amazing if the remaining originals had cameos <sigh>

I liked Caroline as well.  She was intelligent, had integrity and was a good friend to Demelza.

I admired the way she spoke with Ross, as they travelled back from London after the Adderley incident, about their feelings for each other.  Nicely handled.

I always dismissed Judy Geeson as one of those girly, sixties dolly-bird starlets until I saw her in Poldark. I like Caroline, she's the sort of person I would like to be . . .

Loved watching my sky recording of The Cult of Poldark last night and seeing the actors as they now are (does anyone know when this programme was made)?  Don't you agree that Angharad Rees remains little changed from the 70s?  Robin Ellis looks so distinguished now (I believe he is 67 or 68) and Richard Morant still has his impish grin!!  Loved seeing the aged Jill Townsend so glad that there are still some actresses that believe in growing old gracefully without any surgical aids - but there again she is such a tremendous lady doing such wonderful work with the under privilidged of this world.  If they had managed to interview Judy Geeson and Clive Francis it would have been just perfect.  Still just seeing Robin Ellis was enough to give me goosepimples!

It was interesting to see how she'd aged. She looked more like I thought Linda Evans (Dynasty) should look now. 

We're in the wrong topic now, aren't we wink

Jill Townsend never really got any credit for that accent did she? When you think of the fuss they make over Gwyneth Paltrow for her english accent, yould be forgiven for thinking she was the first to have ever got it right. Strangely I always thought Jill Townsend was scottish , i was convinced i could hear a scottish lilt in her voice occasionally..........

Funny wasn't it? Jill was pure American. I don't know much about her so I guess I assumed she lived in the UK but no. I take my hat off to her for the accent - you'd have to be listening very closely to find anything to criticise.

And Ross, effeminate?? Are they mad? He is smouldering masculinity on a stick, ponytail or not biggrin

I enjoyed seeing this in its entirety this time. I recorded it first time but the reception was poor and a lot of it was a blank screen! So this was great to see the whole programme. I loved seeing the Actors talking about their roles, strange seeing Elizabeth or rather Jill Townsend speak with an american accent and without that rather superior haughty demeanor!

I thought it was edited to make it look more of a romp than it was and Im not surprised that WG didnt like it being described as a "bodice ripper". Anyone who reads Poldark or any of WGS books will know just how sensitively and intuitively he writes, especially about women so to suggest his work is nothing more than a historical carry on film is misleading and completely untrue!

Don't forget, the Cult of Poldark is on the BBCIPlayer if you want to see it again!!!

Yes, I was hoping to see Clive Francis too and also Judy Geeson, such a shame they didn't take part, probably busy on other things.  As I've mentioned in a previous post, I saw Judy Geeson recently on Gilmore Girls, she still looks lovely.

Did anyone else pick up on the broadcaster, Hilary Oliver, commenting on the programme saying that Ross looked slightly effeminate with his long hair???? Which planet did she come from I ask?  Robin alias Ross Poldark was pure testosterone on legs, a prime example of an all male swashbuckling romantic hero.  Now, I could have understood it if she was talking about Hugh Armitage .......... and, one other interesting point I noticed was that one of the Executive Producers was Toby Stevens, wonder if it's the same one?

Yes Judys sister Sally was in Bless this house (good grief thats a blast from the past and also shows my advancing years!).  Wasn't it good to catch the Cult of Poldark last night.  I only caught it by chance when I actually managed to get control of the remote control and was searching for what was on.  I've only caught small snippets of it before from You Tube (the ones you uploaded, I think!).  Hope you are well and not too washed out from too much work.

Hi Caroline, I was hoping they would have got Clive Francis involved as well, as he still acts regularly and should have been easy to find. He may not have wanted to do it of course.....
Didnt Judy Geesons's sister act as well? Sally Geeson. I remember her in Bless this house but im probably showing my advancing age now......

She moved to L.A. in the early '80s and currently owns an antique shop there. She doesn't seem to have acted for about 5 years. She had a few problems and never really got back into it.

I wish they could have spoken to her for the Cult programme. Shouldn't have been a problem as they managed to dig out Jill Townsend.

Bumped into Caroline the other day in the 'Gilmore Girls' on E4; she was playing a friend of Rori's grandma.  Does anyone know what she has been up to since Poldark?
