  • How was the war, sir?

  • As any war

  • a waste of good men

  • Step me, boy

  • you've survived

  • My boy is to be married

  • Elizabeth?

  • When I first met Elizabeth

  • there was no thought of my coming between you

  • It's a poor Cornwall you've returned to

  • taxes sky high

  • wages in the gutter

  • Have they hurt you, child?

  • Don't child me, mister

  • What's your name?

  • Demelza Carne

  • Ross Poldark

  • I'm in need of a kitchen maid

  • Opening a mine

  • Despite our conversation

  • It seems we both have mining in our blood

  • God knows if that's a blessing or a curse

  • Are the rumors true, do you think?

  • What am I a circus attraction?

  • I wonder, do you not think of marriage, Captain Poldark?

  • What's it to me what folks say

  • What are you wearing?

  • I found it, sir

  • You dare to go rifling through those things

  • I didn't take you from your father for this

  • What do it matter what you took me for?

  • You know what people say of us

  • If we behave like this

  • it will be true

  • Then let it be true

  • What do you mean by running away

  • I thought after what happened

  • You thought you would no longer be my servant

  • You were right

  • He could have had his pick

  • any number of eligible girls from rising families instead of which he marries his serving wench

  • So you love her

  • Before he met you he was broken

  • You've given him hope

  • You've redeemed me

  • I am your humble servant

  • and I love you

  • Well I hope you will have a little love to spare

  • I promise you I will make the world a

  • better place for her

  • And for me?

  • What we know is that Ross Poldark

  • though clever, has a weakness

  • He plays it straight

  • No good will come of being sentimental about such folk

  • There are forces

  • opposing us

  • to put us out of business

  • But perhaps your choice of wife has coarsened your finer instincts

  • Enough!

  • I have caused a rift between the two sides of our family

  • Can you forgive me?

  • Putrid throat

  • Whole families have gone under

  • Come back, my love

  • Come back

  • His daughter's burial

  • If I could do anything

  • You can pray to God I do not lose the love of my life

  • Has she come to take you

  • No, my love, she will never take me

  • Where's Julia?

  • She was peaceful

  • I held her in my arms

  • Captain Poldark

  • I have orders to take you to Truro Jail

  • I am to be tried by Justice Lister in five days time

  • It's not a question of whether you'll be found guilty, but when

  • Will I have a chance to say goodbye to my wife

  • Poldark will surely hang

  • The mine he will leave to his wife

  • Was she not his kitchen maid

  • He'll come home again

  • We find him

  • Not Guilty

  • He does not strike me as a man who take such things lying down

  • that in failing to get him hanged

  • you have left yourself exposed

  • Ross Poldark would not dare lay a finger on me

  • Threw him across the Red Lion, broke his nose

  • When I control the mine, I control Ross

  • You went out on the boat

  • Why is it fine for you to run risks

  • when I may not even take a boat out in calm waters

  • You are the most stubborn

  • pig-headed

  • I am

  • Where would you be I had not come along?

  • Where would you be if I had not come along

  • You have a son

  • There's a novelty

  • A married couple who enjoy each other's company

  • but then did they not marry for love

  • Tonight you'll have eyes for none but me

  • Tonight I'll have eyes for none but you

  • Cannot a woman love two men

  • A piece of my heart will always be yours

  • as a piece of yours will always be mine

  • Sometimes I think he loves Elizabeth better

  • She's Ross's first love

  • So you mistake your own value

  • Ross was a wise man when he chose you

  • And he will not forget it

  • You think I no longer love you

  • Do you doubt it

  • So I am not to be rid of you, my love

  • So you are not to be rid of me, my love

  • George Warleggen is to marry Elizabeth

  • The man who tried to get me hanged

  • Do you suppose that she ever seriously meant to marry George

  • Surely it was just a trick

  • She got what she wanted

  • I am not content to be second best

  • Why am I here, Demelza?

  • I don't know why you're still here, Ross

  • That those who suffer most

  • are the ones who ignore their heart's desires

  • Stop this!

  • Lost our nerve, have we?

  • Didn't fancy the battlefields of France

  • No

  • This is what you came back for?

  • My true

  • real

  • and abiding love

  • is for you

  • We're left idling at home while the men go off and fight battles

  • I do not ask you not to be reckless

  • For I know you cannot promise something which is so against your nature

  • I have changed

  • because of you

  • The woman I love is married to the man

  • to whom I owe my life

  • I wish I could be two people

  • someone else

  • Who could love another just for a day

  • and just for a day without feeling disloyal to the man I truly love

  • For I know who it is who truly owns my heart

How was the war, sir?
