Poldark Episode 6 Preview

The Carnmore smelting company is a success and Ross (Aidan Turner) makes more of an enemy of George (Jack Farthing) by outbidding him for copper at auction. Meanwhile, Francis (Kyle Soller) is increasingly volatile now that he has lost his mine and is reduced to working the land, so Verity (Ruby Bentall) avoids speaking to him about her plans to marry Captain Blamey (Richard Harrington).

When Ross and Zacky (Tristan Sturrock) discover there is fever at Bodmin Jail just weeks before Jim (Alexander Arnold) is to be released, Ross asks Dwight (Luke Norris) to accompany him to the prison. Ross forces his way into the jail and discovers that Jim is near death. They break Jim out from the jail in a desperate attempt to save him.

Returning home, Ross is expected to attend George’s grand ball. He is sickened at the thought of going amongst the people responsible for Jim’s incarceration, but Verity persuades him that he must do it for Demelza and Julia’s sake; to remind everyone that he is one of their class so they won’t arrest him for the prison break. However, at the ball Ross is fighting drunk and Demelza is aghast that she has been left to fend for herself at her first ever high society social event.

This is probably the last episode of this season in which we see TV's original Ross Poldark, Robin Ellis, as the Reverend Halse and we can look forward to a bit of a showdown between the Reverend and Ross.

A new season of Poldark has been announced so, for those who have not read the books, it's worth just taking a note of Sir Hugh Bodrugan (Patrick Ryecart) who will pop up in Season 2.

Finally, the mention of poor Jim Carter in jail reminds me of some pictures posted by Poldark make-up artist Laura Viana da Silva during last year's filming.
