Poldark S2 Finale in Australia

Poldark Series 2, Finale, viewing figures, audience, Aidan Turner, Eleanor Tomlinson, Australia, ABC
One has to feel sorry for any drama that has its final episode pushed back by a week so some other event can be shown on TV and that's just what happened to Poldark Series 2 in Australia one Sunday where viewers, tuning in to ABC to learn of Ross and Demelza's fate, were faced with a Crowded House concert and one more week of waiting.

Rather splendidly, when the finale was eventually shown last Sunday, Australian's tuned in in their thousands and episode 10 returned the strongest audience numbers of the season: a cracking 536,000 in the five city metropolitan area according to TVTonight. This is not enough to match the figures for the first series which ranged between 649k (the premiere) and 567k but is a good improvement on the second season's opening of 479k and, interestingly, reflects the finale's performance in the UK too.

Well done Poldark!
