 Hi Jane - you are correct - she never had an abortion - in the tv series she was traipsing off over the moors to have one when Ross caught her up and stopped her, and then asked her to marry him - lovely scene and one of my favourites...although vastly different from the book of course.

Yes I too have come across this site. Some of the things said are doubtful though; they seem to make assumptions about some of the storylines, eg: the toads in Warleggan's pond had some sort of sexual connotation?

Hello Dwight,

I have come across and read the blog you refer to.  Although I have not seen the series, I got the feeling that several of the stories had been mangled in the blogger's mind.  For instance, I know she mentions Demelza having had an abortion - and have never heard any reference to that happening, even in the series - please correct me if I am wrong.  I did wonder at one point if the books had been read at all!

The views expressed are interesting, however, and it is fun to read another point of view.

A word of warning - make sure you have a spare hour or two when you call the site up!!

Hi Guys,

Reading the "Meeting Demelza" thread led me to Googling to see if I could find out a bit more about this short story, but instead I came across this Poldark Blog

http://ellenandjim.wordpress.com/2011/05/07/grahams-demelza/

It is one of several fairly long Blogs discussing many aspects of Poldark, mainly taken from watching the TV Series, and fairly interesting as the Blogger is not only going into the filming and the writing in great detail, but also because she is coming at it from a different perspective from most of us. Somehow she has also managed to illustrate her Blog with many still images taken from the Series as well, both character and landscape.

The Blog to which I have linked is only one of several she has written, folllowing various links in the Blog, or navigating through the Archive will bring several more to light.

Perhaps the writer needs to be invited to join our happy little Forum as well.

Enjoy

Dwight
