Critic Reviews for Poldark: Season 3
All Critics (10) | Fresh (10) | Rotten (0)
A bit like the average distance between humans and rats, in Poldark you are never far from birth, marriage or death. In this first episode of the third series, there was a full house, the emphasis being very much on death.
Poldark made a welcome return to form, with rather less of the depressing porridge of poverty that sluiced through the last series.
Aidan Turner still a magnetic lead, but Series Three feels like the point where the show puts greater emphasis on activities beyond Ross’s copper-finding strops, and demonstrates the strengths of an excellent — and expanding — ensemble cast.
The honest truth? Can’t wait for next year.
Its a tense instalment.
Quite why this absurd Mills & Boon-esque farrago is one of the Beeb’s flagship events every time it comes back around is a mystery, though I suppose it’s solid proof of the value of giving the viewers what they want.
A dark moon hung over last night’s Poldark.
Poldark is just that: televised holiday romance, a teenage fantasy with clotted cream. It’s nice to be — and to have it — back.
It’s an absorbing, atmospheric antidote to the spray tans and gymbots preening all over our screens on summer staples like Love Island and Big Brother.
