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!

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:

        I remeber when "Poldark" was first broadcast in the 1970's, but realized I had forgotten much of it. I bought it because I wanted to compare it with this year's version and--I confess--I wanted to see how the series ended. The versions are similar,but not identical. At first, I was a little disappointed to see that the 1970's version is not remastered, so you won't see as sharp a picture as you do with the current "Poldark", but you do forget this. All the actors are wonderful in the original version and I enjoyed seeing the changes in fashion as the years progressed. All in all, I was quite satisfied and am looking forward to also collecting all seasons of the "new" Poldark.

              Highly recommend this wonderful classic! This version is more like a filmed stage production whereas the newest version makes the viewer feel they are actually there in Cornwall with the characters. I love that Robin Ellis, the original Poldark, also stars in the modern series! Both versions are well worth your time: fantastic acting ensembles, action, history, drama - they have it all! Some of the best series on TV ever!

                    The earlier edition is much better than the current one being shown on Masterpiece.

                          Thoroughly enjoyed Poldark when it was on TV. It is the best PBS show I have ever seen. Also enjoy the new Poldark but love the original. Robin Ellis is perfect as Poldark. Every night after work I watch a new episode. It is so realistic I feel I'm watching real people instead of a television show.
