I've been pretty keen to watch this one because I really like Aidan Turner and I enjoy historical dramas. I'll check it out on iView.
Some people I know say they are enjoying it, but it is not particularly of interest to me.
It's a great
Yes, I am watching this as it is one of the very few good shows on at the moment.
I really enjoyed the first episode, and like shows where you need to watch them all.

Watched the original series' with Robin Ellis & Angharad Rees(RIP). Have read all the books. Loved both mediums!

Have VHS taped new series', but not got to those tapes yet!
Am slowly whittling away at my 'pile' of them! Am looking forward to it!
Yes. Didn't catch the first series so hope the local library has it. Was I away from the English language news scene when the actor playing Uncle Poldark passed away?
I was sad to hear that Warren Clarke is no longer with us. I loved him in Dalziel and Pascoe.
Warren Clarke was just terrific in D&P.
First saw him in 'Jewel in the Crown', 1982, BBC series, which 'introduced' Charles Dance, Geraldine James, Susan Wooldridge & 'Ali Kumar' actor, sorry, have forgotten his REAL name, but can picture him! (senior moment!)

If you haven't seen it, get hold of it & watch! It's brilliant. Had virtually the 'who's who' of UK Stars' in it, at the time!

Art Malik is the UK actor who was Ali Kumar, in 'Jewel in the Crown'! I just remembered!

I was going too, but I had a back log of other ABC iview shows to watch, so I had to leave that 1 by the roadside, as they say.
