Personally I have enjoyed both versions.  The older one was many years ago so I barely remembered the story.

@esme, isn’t that amazing???  I saw it before and I was shocked.  I am sure his sleazy personality did a lot to color my thinking of him as well.  LM


 

@Lilysmom  I agree with you. I used to feel sorry for the actress playing his wife but upon seeing his real life picture now - wow, not so much. 😃

Happiness is not a destination, it is a way of life.

I’ve seen other pictures of him not as the Vicar and I think he is very handsome. I read an online article that he had to gain so much weight for the character, but a lot of it was muscle. They tried to beef up his muscles as well I guess to balance him out. Also, he is actually married to the actress who plays Morwenna.

 

Love me some Poldark

@bmorechick You are mistaken re: his wife. I read today his wife has a part in the PBS series The Durrells in Corfu. I don’t watch it so who she plays didn’t mean anything to me and I don’t remember.

I will miss the vicar; he was my favorite character. He was so awful.

@Highlands72 Yes, loved the miffed looks he got. It was hard to care about Morwenna, so spineless and woe begone. Her sister was the opposite and more than a match for the vicar.

 

I think Drake and Sam were miscast, there is nothing hot or appealing about either of them. One should have been a ginger.

For some reason I just can't get into this Poldark series. I guess I just prefer the first one that was made

 

I thought it was grittier and somehow  it struck me as more how the times would have looked, and sounded

 

I liked the first series cast far better


 

 

 The first cast was definitely superior.in my opinion. I particularly liked the first Demelza (sp) so much more than the present one....she was a tiny little thing;so charming but  determined as you would expect a woman of her background to be.,I recently read an article about the original series and the Brits who replied whole heartedly agreed.
