Cornwall, 1783. Captain Ross Poldark returns from the battlefield to find his father dead, estate in ruins, and sweetheart Elizabeth engaged to another. Though it appears there is nothing left for him in his former home, Ross stubbornly resolves to remain in Cornwall and return his estate to its former glory.
Joined by useless former servants Jud and Prudie, and scrappy street urchin Demelza, Ross must forge a new life for himself in the face of hostile forces.
Aidan Turner (The Hobbit) brings the dashing Captain Ross Poldark back to life, alongside Eleanor Tomlinson and Heida Reed, in an all-new version of the beloved, vintage romance
