A sensation on Masterpiece in the 1970s, this spellbinding saga tells the story of the dashing Captain Ross Poldark (Robin Ellis, The Good Soldier) and his ever-changing fortunes. Based on the novels by Winston Graham, these two classic miniseries teem with daring deeds and romance, all set against the spectacular backdrop of the ruggedly beautiful Cornish coast.

This is one of the most enjoyable of all the British drama series. The cast is superb, the setting of Cornwall dramatic, and the story is gripping. It's based on a series of novels by the late Winston Graham, so the story lines are well worked out and the characters three-dimensional. It tells of a Cornish minor aristocrat who returns from the American Revolutionary War to discover his home in ruins and his fiancée engaged to his cousin. It's a saga full of adventure, love, friendship, betrayal & greed--set against the fantastic scenery of rugged Cornwall. Viewers of Masterpiece Theater rated it one of the top 10 British series ever shown on PBS.

I am not able to recommend this mini series unlike so many other great British Drama movies and series. I actually did not finish watching it. No comparison to Lark Rise and Candleford which was a dream. North and South perfection. Wives and Daughters the Best. Downtown Abbey counting down to the next release. Call of the Midwife- wish it wouldn't end. It all started with Pride and Prejudice a generational family favorite.

              Comments about PBS Poldark Complete Collection DVD:

              Robin Ellis IS POLDARK! The most wonderful series from start to finish. PBS will be showing a remake in 2015 to public TV in the U.S. If you are a real Masterpiece Theater fan from 1972 to the present and feels the way I do ..that Downton Abby is no Upstairs Downstairs then you should add this series, Poldark, to your collection before you see the remake. Writing and Acting superb!

                    Comments about PBS Poldark Complete Collection DVD:

                    Poldark is a dramatic and intensely romantic series about a strong, independent-thinking hero of the late 18th century. Watching it is like eating cashews; you eat one after another and can't stop. Beautifully filmed and detailed, it is a thrilling series.

                          I was introduced to Poldark when it first appeared on Masterpiece Theater. As an American Anglophile, I try to watch all English programs. I have the complete series of Poldark, and couldn't be more pleased.I also love Law and Order UK, even though I know unfortunately it is not aired on PBS, and now it is not aired in the US-or not in my cable system at all, and that is very disappointing
