Masterpiece: Poldark, Season 4 DVD
1794: The French revolution hangs over Britain. George Warleggan grows his empire; and Ross and Demelza attempt to keep the peace. Facing battles both at home and abroad, will Ross answer the call and risk losing everything he holds dear?
This entire series is truly a high-class production and every single person involved in bringing this epic series to the screen is to be commended. But I think three people really provide excellence in leadership to this endeavor. First Debbie Horsefield’s screen adaption of the novels faithfully captures the richness of the characters as they live and love through their era in history. It all begins with a superior writer. And Eleanor Tomlinson artfully portrays Demelza over an almost unimaginable range of life experiences bringing a beloved literary character to life — “imperfect, human, real.” But it is Aidan Turner I think who really brings this production to its level of perfection. I have never seen an actor so thoroughly understand the breadth of the character he’s portraying and so superbly project it on screen with such outstanding talent. Our lives are complex multifaceted journeys. Ross Poldark’s life is no different and Aidan Turner is masterfully letting Ross’s life’s journey unfold before our very eyes. His sensitivity to Ross — His empathy with Ross — is absolutely amazing and awe-inspiring.
