I saw the original many years ago and was so looking forward to this updated version.  Unfortunately, I keep missing the shows!  I'm hoping to watch it at another time when I can focus and not be interrupted! 

 

The new RP is very handsome and I did catch the scene last night where he said, "I love you."   Sigh.....

 

It's been so long since I saw the original, I've forgotten the story so I am looking forward to watching it again.

This was the original Demelza, Welsh actress Angharad Rees.  She was wonderful.  She died at age 63 of pancreatic cancer.

Robin Ellis who was the original Ross has a cameo appearance as a judge in the new production. He was just as handsome in his youth

I believe you can see the episodes on pbs.org.  I had missed the series completely and watched the first two online on their site.


Why is it, when I have a 50/50 guess at something, I'm always 100% wrong?

Aidan Turner certainly is a gorgeous young man, and he's in suberb shape.  I've seen a few photos of him with the shorter hair, and I have to say I like the long, disheveled locks much better!

 

But I have to admit that he's the same age as my grandson!  (That doesn't keep me from admiring the view, though!)  I'm only sorry this is a limited series.
