Poldark Season 2 Episode 2 (BBC-1 11 Sep 2016)

Published

on

It’s been a long seven days since last week’s incredibly tense cliffhanger on Poldark but it’s definitely worth the wait. As the episode begins the election results are announced and Unwin is tied for the second seat – but the mob has reached boiling point and Unwin Trevaunance is attacked.

Elizabeth travels to Bodmin, knowing if she does not she will not be able to stop worrying about Francis, or Ross. George eavesdrops on Demelza’s conversation with Justice Lister, intervening to reveal she is the wife of the trial’s defendant and attempting to influence the case.

Dwight discovers Francis very much alive in his room and persuades Francis not to try again. Meanwhile the prosecution ties the rioting of the previous night to Ross’s behaviour and presents a series of witnesses supposedly comprised of Ross’s friends. However, when Jud is on the stand, he comes out with an unexpected account of events.

Ross prepares to make his speech – one prepared by his Clymer – but goes decidedly off-script, sticking true to his principles. Despite Justice Lister wishing to make an example of Ross’s revolutionary ways, will the jury of Cornishmen rally to save Ross…

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.
