Written and created for television by Winston Graham!
24 April 2018
The Graham Poldark novels are right up there with Hardy in terms of history and descriptive writing (I don't think even Hardy writes better dialogue) and the latest TV version does a good job of boiling thousands of pages down to a few hours of eye-catching entertainment. As an admirer of Graham's I find it odd that someone else has nabbed a "created and written by" credit, because without the books there would be nothing to watch! Good fun, though.
