Just want to quickly say thank you to Nampara firl for adding the video clips. I never thought of doing that.

I can understand your concern but to me the books are so much descriptive and you really get to understand the characters so well.
I usually prefer the books to anything else but this scene really demonstrate Demelzas hurt and despair when Ross leaves her to go to Elizabeth.

Please don't let that concern stop you from reading 'Jeremy Poldark' and the rest of the Poldark novels - you won't be disappointed, the books are wonderfully descriptive of the thoughts and feelings of the characters.  I think that, although the TV series differs from the actual storyline of the books, the two mediums compliment each other and because we have a physical picture in our minds of the characters as portrayed in the TV production, the books come alive so much more in the imagination, blending the visual and imaginary mediums, enriching the whole Poldark experience. 

I really would encourage and recommend you to carry on with reading the Poldark books and feel pretty sure you will come to love WG's phenomenal writing skills.  reading.gif

My favourite scenes in no particular order:

The Seduction Scene



When Ross and Demelza are in London and Demelza asks Ross to pass her her nightdress.





The board meeting when Ross tries to  start up a  smelting company. I liked the wide eyed innocent acting by Robin Ellis while smoking a pipe.  I picked my avatar because of that.

OK - come on everyone, let's see which clips are your favourites!  I'll get the ball rolling then in the hope of encouraging everyone else to have a go.

Starting with the Poldark theme tune, and Ross giving George a bit of a battering, I just love the beautifully atmospheric start to this video clip because it's so realistic and you feel as if you're actually there in the boat with Demelza listening to the sound of the water sloshing around the boat as the oars hit the water and the rush of the waves hitting the rocks and chasing the foamy white surf to the shore.  Ross raises a toast to wet the baby's head and Jud is his usual cheeky self with the toothless grin he always wears when there's a sniff of alcohol around.  Ross gets into a rare old pickle, as only a man can, when left holding the baby, Jeremy, who needs a nappy change and Demelza is her usual impishly cheeky and flirtatious self when she comes home to survey the chaos.  I find the scenes of Francis playing so lovingly with Geoffrey Charles so endearing and would like to give Elizabeth a shake to make her realise what a sensitive and loving husband she has, if she could only give him a chance to prove it.  The end part always makes me smile as the haughty Elizabeth attempts to put Demelza down in front of Caroline and Connie Bodrugan couldn't give a monkeys about what anyone thinks.  Pure gold Poldark moments.  I hope you agree ............
