My favourite characters are

Drake Carne, for being so compleltey romantic and my ideal man. He has such an understanding nature and his unduring love for Morwenna.

Demelza- for being down to earth, yet funny and perceptive.

Francis- I like Francis alot. I think he was rash at times, but so was Ross. His pain over losing Verity was really poignant and I think that he only ever had affairs as Elizabeth didn't love him anymore. I least I like to think of it that way.

Bella, as I child she can be a precocious brat, but she matures quickly and is far better to read about than her annoying sister.

Demelza for her wisdom, compassion and humanity. Jud for his outrageous lovable roguishness, Francis for his wit and dry humour, Caroline for her arrogant, fallible but generous nature and WG for inventing all these wonderful characters that have been my friends and companions for many years

Indeed, Clive Francis was great in the role of Francis Poldark, and for the longest time I was wondering where I'd seen him, and heard his voice, before.  A few weeks ago I watched my copy of A Clockwork Orange for the first time in ages, and there he was! He plays the intruding boarder of the parent's house when the main character comes back home after his "treatment."

Demelza and Francis - I was just instantly drawn to them both! 


Demelza is a true heroine, expertly written by Winston Graham so that she is human as well as brave and beautiful; I would like to find Elizabeth lacking on Demelza's behalf, but she, too, is a psychological study in herself (I think I'm put off more by Ross' obsession than by Elizabeth herself), and I find myself understanding her decisions and blaming other characters for what happens to and because of her!


In the TV series, I also think that Angharad Rees is the most natural cast member, completely making the character of Demelza her own (despite being a redhead, instead of dark, as in the books). I always hear her "Oh, Ross!" whenever I read it in the novels, now!


Clive Francis, too, was superb as Francis, with just the right expressions to carry off that sharp, foppish wit and his deeper insecurities. I really miss the character in the books, too! As I think one of the elder Warleggans says, if only Elizabeth could have fallen down the mine instead ;)

Elizabeth--I tend to regard her as the "queen" in this series. Always level headed, fair, and elegant. Well, I guess taking the "medication" wasn't a wise decision, but, she was pushed into a corner.
Demelza--Utterly loveable, and a strong woman. She takes matters into her own hands when stubborn Ross refuses to.
Ross Poldark--Obvious reasons, he's the hero, he's invincible, he's willing to do anything to support his family.
George Warleggan--Deliciously evil. I still get the shudders when he confronts Aunt Agatha regarding her birthday party.
Aunt Agatha--Just funny. She cuts people off at the knees with just small sentences alone. She reminds me so much of my landlord's mother.
Francis Poldark--He tries and tries, and I feel his pain. And a humorous character, as well. Sad, sad death.
And of course, Jud & Prudie. When Jud "dies," it never fails to crack me up.

I've always liked Jud and Elizabeth the most for ages but I think nowadays it has to be Jud and Verity. She had such patience ! Pity Winston didn't make more of her character towards the end.
