Poldark Season 2 Episode 1 (BBC-1 4 Sep 2016)

Published

on

The second season of Poldark at last gets underway on the 4th September at 9.00pm. This time around there are ten episodes to enjoy and as the series begins we are very quickly in the heart of the action. The following preview may be too detailed for some fans so close your eyes whilst reading any spoilery bits…

George Warleggan is building his case against Ross so Pascoe forces Ross to prepare a will in case the worst happens – while Demelza visits their neighbour Ray Penvenen to gain an ally.

Francis seeks reconciliation but Ross refuses, and Francis takes this badly. Elizabeth attempts to negotiate a ceasefire between Ross and George too, persuading George to offer Ross his help in influencing the court. However, Ross rejects this offer as well, seeing that the price of friendship with George is too high.

The court case takes place in Bodmin, which is overwhelmed with crowds who are there for the county election. George is funding a candidate, Unwin Trevaunance, in the hope of extending the reach of his own influence; however, Unwin is more concerned with his pursuit of Ray Penvenen’s niece, Caroline, who herself has taken a liking to Dr Dwight Enys.

Francis, consumed with guilt for betraying Ross, tells George what he really thinks of him before making his way into Dwight’s lodgings and attempting to kill himself. George offers to stand up for Ross in court if he will accept his friendship, but Ross refuses. Demelza tries to meet Justice Lister to tell him that George is perverting justice but George has the doormen prevent her from entering.

Ross begins to realise that he may well be hanged tomorrow…

Hazell and the Suffolk Ghost

In Hazell and the Suffolk Ghost our intrepid hero pays a visit to the seaside when an accountant, Peter Harlow, calls him in over a cottage he has been left in a will. He has no idea why he has been left the cottage but since he has taken over ownership more than a few strange things have been happening.

Hazell stays at the cottage for a few days and manages to find no small amount of comfort when Harlow’s wife Stephanie turns up (Harlow himself is in New York). Although there is clearly something spooky going on it’s definitely man made and it doesn’t take Hazell too long to work it out.

The episode was a rare outing outside of London for the series, it was filmed in the East Anglian village of Walberswick and surrounds. Although all the interiors were filmed in studio of coure.
