Writer: Debbie Horsfield / Director: William McGregor

Series: Poldark / Season 1 Episode 8

And so it comes to this, the final episode of what has been a massively successful series and events are very much coming to a climax with Ross and George Warleggan doing battle over the smelting company and Dwight Enys still in recovery mode following his ill fated and ill judged affair with Keren.

All of this pales into insignificance when the people of Trenwith come down with the “putrid throat” – Demelza’s act of rushing to their aid leads to baby Julia also becoming infected with the possibly fatal disease.

Fear not though as we will be getting more of the series,a second series has been commissioned!!
