Isis Town and Country - - Television -

Sun­day, ABC, 8.40pm

There are a fair few things Bri­tish tele­vi­sion does well and one of them is most def­i­nitely pe­riod dra­mas. This new se­ries, an eight-part adap­ta­tion of Win­ston Gra­ham’s Poldark nov­els, is a sweep­ing drama set in 18th-cen­tury Corn­wall. Ross Poldark (Ai­dan Turner, right, The Hob­bit tril­ogy) re­turns home from fight­ing in the Amer­i­can Revo­lu­tion a changed man. But he’s not the only thing changed – his love is mar­ried to his cousin, his fa­ther is dead and his fam­ily’s sweep­ing es­tate has been left in ru­ins. Rather than be run out of town, Ross de­cides his place is to stay and rebuild his home to its for­mer glory, but not ev­ery­one is pleased about it.
