UK / BBC One / 1×60 minute episode / Broadcast Sunday 8 March 2015 @ 9.00pm

Series: Poldark / Season 1 Episode 1 (of 8)

The hugely anticipated premiere of the new version of Poldark, previously made by the BBC in the mid 1970’s and based on the best selling books by Winston Graham, is finally upon us.

Ross Poldark joins the army to avoid charges of smuggling. He goes to fight in the American War of Independence, leaving behind his sweetheart, Elizabeth, with the promise that he will return soon. Three years later, wounded and scarred, Ross returns home to discover that his father has died, his estate is in ruins and Elizabeth is set to marry his cousin Francis.

Elizabeth and Francis are married. Ross is surprised to see that callous banker George Warleggan is at the groom’s side. Ross’s uncle, Charles Poldark thinks that it would be better for the newlyweds if Ross were to leave Cornwall and he offers to pay for Ross to make a fresh start elsewhere.

Ross stubbornly refuses, determined to rebuild his family estate, Nampara. With only the help of his father’s useless servants, Jud and Prudie, Ross takes on a new kitchen-maid, Demelza (Eleanor Tomlinson), after he rescues her from a beating.

Googie Withers Within These Walls

In Prison Cat, pregnant Poppy Hall is distraught when her boyfriend breaks it off. Prison officer Worth decides to try and get him to change his mind but instead becomes romantically involved with him.

Meanwhile Amaryllis Royal, who is also having a baby, threatens to sue Stone Park because she has to have her baby in prison.

Poppy gives birth and because she thinks her boyfriend Ted will take her back if she doesn’t have the baby. She kills the infant and blames it on the prison cat. At the baby’s funeral Poppy escapes and discovers Ted with Officer Worth. Ted makes it clear to both of them that all he wants is some fun. Worth persuades Poppy to return to prison but she herself has had enough.

This was the second script for the series by Kathleen J. Smith, she was a former Assistant Governor at Holloway. According the Kathleen the story “was not based on fact, but the characters are, and so are the stresses that face them. You could say the story is based on possibilities.”
