Did you miss the season finale of Poldark? Demelza makes a decisive choice regarding Armstrong while Rowella and Morwenna stand up to Osborne. George makes trouble for Drake, while Elizabeth gives George an ultimatum.
Pregnancies abound amongst the Durrells' friends, but their timing – plus a crime of passion – means the doctor has his hands full. Leslie, Louisa, and Spyros all step in as nurses, with various degrees of experience. As usual, Larry misses it all.

Zany as they seem, the family and friends in The Durrells in Corfu are based on real people: a naturalist, a famous novelist, a polymath. Meet some of the illustrious Durrells and the other characters they met during their real-life stay in Corfu.
Ross adds action hero to his list of roles as he and his friends conduct a dangerous prison break to save Dwight. Drake and Demelza struggle to break things off, but George and Elizabeth force Osborne into the picture in exchange for social influence.

The Poldark airing now isn't the first adaptation of Winston Graham's historical novels. The BBC produced two extremely popular seasons about Ross, Demelza, Elizabeth, and George in the 1970s as well. How do the characters in the old and new series compare?
