Welcome to the board Llyn - our 200th member ! And thanks for the interesting intro, seems a visit to Cornwall is long overdue ! biggrin

I've always wished Richard Morant had been in the second series too as it did lose that all important continuity and even now it still clashes. I'd always understood he'd already agreed to play another part and therefore wasn't able to appear in the second series. However I've since heard or read, I think this year, that he didn't like the script and pulled out. Not sure so can anyone confirm this ?

Bit quiet on here at the moment, either people are still getting over their hols or more likely we're all back into the books again, as it was pretty busy earlier this year so we've probably run dry !! Also one or two members are in the same boat as you and I believe have bought the Australian DVDs, so hopefully they'll be letting us know what they're like sooner or later.

And thanks a lot for the compliments for the website too, always good to get feedback.

Hope you enjoy it all smile

Greg

Hi, I am a new member and also in Canada so I thought this threat was a good one to post on.  I also liked the character of Dwight!
I became a Poldark fan when it aired on PBS Masterpiece Theater and on the CBC (late at night) when I was in high school.  I wrote to WGBH in Boston asking about the t.v. series and they sent me back a number of b&w 8 x 10's.  I also wrote to Robin Ellis at one point and got an autographed picture and letter back.  I hope it was actually him signing.  It was very nice for a high school girl to get! I bought the books the other day at a used bookstore since I have moved and do not know which box my old originals are in.  I haven't read them for years, so am enjoying Book one again.  I saw Stefan Gates (Geoffrey Charles as a boy) on the web in a cooking show recently.  I always thought he resembled Jill Townsend a lot.  I just looked at Richard Morant's rugs webpage and thought that interesting.  I always wished he was in the second series. 
I have a brother and sister living in England for the past 20 years and I hope to make it over one day to visit Poldark's Cornwall.  I have a number of books and love the scenery.  My sister has been to Cornwall several times and says it is a beautiful place to visit.
Well, sorry for writing so much but it's great to find this website and I have much reading and catching up.  Reading the books again is like catching up with old friends!  I look forward to ordering the dvds from someplace (probably eBay Australian ones from the sounds of it) soon.  I have series one on video but that too is old.
Thanks for this website!

Hello and welcome, Dwight Fan! smile

I gave up on waiting for a region 1 (North American) DVD release and finally ordered both series from Australia earlier this summer. (I converted a cheap DVD player to play all regions.) Having read on this forum that the Australian releases are the most complete, I ordered them off eBay. So glad I did! I've been enjoying Poldark all summer, on dvd and the books. biggrin

Hello all!

I've been a fan of Poldark from high school (yes, a long time ago...) and my original copies have numerous pages falling out of them. Since then I've collected numerous versions, and still am. I still have yet to see the series come to DVD yet, but I do have book one on video. It's the finest book reading I've read in a very long time, and I pick them up constantly and re-read them time and time again.
