  • Nina Terrero

    The series is impeccably produced, but the real draw is Turner. [19 Jun 2015, p.58]

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Keith Uhlich

    The sheer blissful goofiness of [Poldark and Demelza's] burgeoning romance (with swelling music, furtive glances, and Harlequin romance novel compositions) encapsulates the pleasures of the series as a whole. This is trash done ecstatically well.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Kristi Turnquist

    Poldark is juicy, romantic, melodramatic storytelling at its most enjoyable.

    The Oregonian Full Review
  • Ellen Gray

    It's all great, escapist fun.

    Philadelphia Daily News Full Review
  • Brian Lowry

    Turner brings the necessary swoon-worthy qualities to the emotionally wounded lead (who knew there were ab exercises back in the 18th century?), but the cast is uniformly good.

    Variety Full Review
  • Matt Roush

    Aidan Turner cuts a dashing figure as the reincarnation of Poldark, reviving an early Masterpiece breakthrough from the mid-70s with swarthy, romantic vigor. [8 Jun 2015, p.13]

    TV Guide Magazine Full Review
  • Hank Stuever

    It’s ridiculous, it’s sumptuous, it’s perfect summer sorbet.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Tirdad Derakhshani

    Poldark doesn't rise to the dramatic heights of Downton Abbey. And though it sometimes takes itself too seriously, it is an eminently watchable yarn.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Rob Owen

    An enjoyable mix of romance, period adventure and serialized plot turns, Poldark proves an entertaining, 18th-century summer soap.

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Full Review
  • Matthew Gilbert

    [Aidan Turner] strips Poldark’s Henry Higgins-like tendencies of any potentially unseemly qualities, which helps to make him easy to root for. Like everything else in Poldark, he’s old-fashioned and winning.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Mark A. Perigard

    By now, you’ve grasped Poldark is a soap, a four-letter word by PBS’ standards.

    Boston Herald Full Review
  • Mike Hale

    Nothing stands out (including the blandly pretty cinematography and insistent music), but it’s saucier than the sum of its parts.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Willa Paskin

    Poldark has no patience for dramatic tension. It is always in a rush. It turns what should be a deliciously drawn-out love story into a fait accompli.... It is too in love with Poldark.

    Slate Full Review
  • Josh Bell

    Both the scenery and the star of Poldark look great, but the storytelling isn’t quite as effective.
