I bought this after watching the first series on BBC TV and have also pre-ordered the second series DVD. Although I still remember the 1970's adaptation with great affection I think this latest version is one I will watch again many times. My only complaint about both old and new adaptations is the way the writers have completely ignored some things that are stated very clearly in Winston Graham's books, such as the clear descriptions of Demelza as dark haired, Elizabeth as blonde (they did get this right in the 1970's version which showed her delicate almost fragile nature. ) and Caroline as a redhead with the temperament to match. Also Garrick has a black curly coat in the books. I suppose it doesn't really matter, but I don't see why they couldn't get these details right.
Despite this I still love the DVD and the TV series.
