Not since Downton Abbey has TV offered such a captivating, soapy period drama.
At its heart, Poldark is partly a soap - a swashbuckling, Cornish soap - that embraces all of its intrigue, backstabbing, power plays, and affaire de coeur.
I'll be honest: This was a fairly bloated start to the season, which is what happens when you jam two episodes into one and need to kick off all your story lines at once, but now we are ready for everything that they can throw at us.
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.
