I was assuming Wally meant the scene where Ross finds Elizabeth's letter saying she's going to marry George Warleggan and leaves saying he must go to her and stop her, whilst poor distraught Demelza pleads with him not to go.  I think that the scene where Prudie comes downstairs to find a weeping and heartbroken Demelza sitting in the dark is intensely poignant and is acted with great empathy and realistic emotion by Angharad.  It's a scene which never fails to move me to tears. cry.gif


 Agree - it always makes me cry..."Go!!! Go to her!!!!' Angharad was such a great crier! cry

Ive not seen all the epsiodes, but the best points for me are:

The chemistry between Demelza and Ross heart.gif

There was some very good castings in the main leads.
The scene where Francis after Verity has gone. It's so sad, he breaks down and was very moving.

I don't know if it was meant to be funny, but the scene where Ossie Whitworth is dragged around the field by his horse was incrediably funny! Or maybe I'm just evil, but seeing how he treated Morwenna and other people, he deserved it! I missed the scene where Morwenna and Drake got married, which is a shame. It's one of my favourites in the book.

The scene where Drake  discovers that Morwenna has been widowed is beautifuly acted by Kevin Macnally, his confusion and utter misery is heartbreaking to watch.

The scene where Ross leaves for Trenwith? Which scene do you mean Wally?

The scene of Ross leaving for Trenwith, the Morwenna/Drake scenes, and the final scene are the best.

I watched before I read. For me, this made the reading more enjoyable because I could visualise the characters more clearly. Demelza was Angharad and Ross was Robin....simples. Obviously, as the tv series left loads out, the books were full of 'extra' surpises.  Had it not been for the tv series, I would never have discovered the novels and they have brought me such joy.

I generally prefer the second series because it was much more faithful to the books but the episode in series one where ROss goes to Elizabeth despite Demelza asking him not to is beautifully portrayed and heartbreaking...
