Poldark

Balonne Beacon - - LIFE -

Satur­day, abc, 8.15pm

The se­ries Poldark is based on the nov­els of the same ti­tle, pub­lished be­tween 1945 and 2002. It’s un­clear whether au­thor Win­ston Gra­ham in­tended for his books to have a TV se­ries based on them that thrives on star Ai­dan Turner’s (pic­tured) in­tense glow­er­ing and flow­ing locks, how­ever he’d def­i­nitely be pleased at how well it has been re­ceived. Sea­son four promises to delve into the po­lit­i­cal land­scape of the times as Pitt the Younger calls an election, and also throws a new vil­lain into the mix in the form of Monk Ad­der­ley, played by Max Ben­nett, a slip­pery politi­cian in league with Ross’s neme­sis, Ge­orge War­leg­gan.
