As the wind whispers through Cornish meadows and chases clouds in skies lit by a buttery sun, the year’s most anticipated drama returns. Romantics everywhere, prepare to stare moodily out to sea in a big dress as we return to that clifftop, and Ross
’s arrest for shipwrecking, plundering and murder.
Ross is led away to face his accusers and later to await his “trial” at Bodmin Assizes. It’s a gorgeous first episode, full of shadows and foreboding, as Ross (Aidan Turner), curiously careless of the fact he might be hanged, refuses all offers of help.
His relationship with his wife Demelza (Eleanor Tomlinson) is richer and more mature as the pair find a new, profound tenderness after the death of their daughter Julia.
And yes, there is a scene that will do for copper mining what a shirtless Turner did for scything. Expect “hot hewing” to become a thing.
New series. Ross stands trial for his life, but refuses to make a deal with George to save himself. Francis is consumed with guilt over betraying his cousin and begs for a reconciliation - but rejection drives him to desperate ends. Demelza seeks the aid of a neighbour (John Nettles), whose niece has caught Unwin's eye - but she seems far more interested in Dwight.
