Poldark TV Show. Why Does Everybody Hate Elizabeth? Is She A Traitor And A Coward?

Aidan Turner as Ross Poldark and Heida Reed as Elizabeth Poldark

Elizabeth Poldark née Chynoweth (actress Heida Reed) is pretty and elegant. She was Captain Ross Poldark’s (Aidan Turner) first love but the destination was cruel with her. Is destiny her main problem? I don’t think so, do you?

Yareah magazine last poll is asking about Poldark’s (2015 TV show) female characters? Read HERE. And it seems that nobody loves Elizabeth. Why do people prefer Demelza (Eleanor Tomlinson)?

I think novels are nicer with Elizabeth than TV series, but a picture is worth a thousand words, and psychological or cultural justifications are hidden. On TV, we cannot read paragraphs about personal doubts of the characters, and the truth is the protagonist.

Elizabeth is a traitor and a coward. She had promised eternal love to Ross but she married her cousin Francis (Kyle Soller). Why? Has she changed her mind? Certainly not! But she prefers money to love.

But even worse, she is so mean that she doesn’t want to give up anything or anybody. She married Francis first and then, she follows flirting with Ross. She makes unhappy Francis Poldark, her husband, and constantly confuses Ross Poldark. This family would be better without such a ‘lady’!

I don’t want to be a spoiler and I’m not going to speak about her destination in the novels, but she deserves any problem she will have in the future. Don’t you think so?

    She is a weak personality! However, Demelza is brave.

      Elizabeth does not have a weak personality. Do not confuse her with her first husband, Francis Poldark.

  • Jason Dowd

    I don’t hate Elizabeth. I actually feel rather sorry for her most of the time.

    Elizabeth is a very complex character. And in this society – especially in period dramas, – female characters aren’t allowed to be complex, because society tends to view them through a whore/Madonna lens. In other words, sexism is still alive and well. Women are just as guilty of this kind of sexism – even when they refuse to admit this.

    They love Demelza because her character is so idealized . . . to the point that I find her unrealistic. I don’t hate Demelza. But I don’t find her as interesting as Elizabeth.
