Ross Poldark and Elizabeth

Aidan Turner is in Cornwall filming Poldark season 2. He plays the role as Captain Ross Poldark and is so sexy and friendly that we can confuse the actor with the character. At least in the books, the character has a dark side. Will BBC show it in the upcoming episodes? How will fans react?

In the books by Winston Graham, published from 1945 to 1953 and continued from 1973 to 2002, Ross Poldark is a gloomy and introspective character, who went to war to escape from justice. Then and from the very beginning, he was not the angel that Aidan Turner’s smile is suggesting.

Ross Poldark and Demelza

Ross Poldark and Demelza

The following lines are about Poldark novels. If you don’t want to know the plot, don’t keep reading. Spoiler alert!

After his return to Cornwall, Poldark’s life is a misery. He is broken and his fiancée Elizabeth is going to marry another man, his cousin Francis. Of course and after some years, Ross rebuild his life with Demelza, who is the true positive character of this turbulent story. They will have five children but… Ross will betray her and in my opinion (tell me yours), she doesn’t deserve it!

How does he betray her? In a very unethical and violent way which involves Elizabeth.

Will BBC show these events in the upcoming episodes? Currently, everybody loves Ross (or maybe people love Aidan Turner) but fans could change their mind seeing violence and treason.

Anyway, the TV show can change facts from the novels. We’ll see the result!

    I’m hoping they don’t follow the novels. I don’t want Ross to do what he does in the fourth novel. Demelza doesn’t deserve it and I think it would make fans not like the show. Fans love Ross and Demelza together. So fingers crossed that it doesn’t make it in the show.

      we have discussed this in a FB book discussion group. We are all upset about what Ross does but it’s part of the story. I will not say more because I hate spoilers for those who have not read the books – all 12 of them!

        well they’ve changed a few things in the tv series that are not in the books. So I think they could change this too.

      And what about Elizabeth? She didn’t deserved to be raped.

    makes you wonder about their research…. I pointed out the wrong war in a previous post…….

    How can it not be true to the books? How will they explain the anguish any other way? I hate that Ross betrays Demelza and rapes Elizabeth because it makes me upset for Demelza, but I think fans would be far more upset if the programs weren’t true to what Winston wrote. I have reread books three and four in anticipation of the new series to prepare myself. Perhaps that is what others need to do as well.

    [” I hate that Ross betrays Demelza and rapes Elizabeth because it makes me upset for Demelza, but I think fans would be far more upset if the programs weren’t true to what Winston wrote.”]

    Upset for Demelza? What about Elizabeth? She is the one who ends up being assaulted . . . not Demelza.
