Poldark looks wonderful but will he turn out to be a rapist?

Goodness me, isn’t Poldark visually lush?

I lived in Cornwall for a while but don’t remember having such easy-on-the-eye scenery.

I am talking coastlines, countryside and – more than that – the lovely Aidan Turner.

He has matured like a fine cheese.

He looks great and almost everyone on the planet wants to have a taste of what he has on offer.

I have yet to catch up with last week’s episode because I have to wait until the family are out as they huff and puff at the romance of it all.

But I am very curious to know if the BBC will make this season’s talk-of-the-town handsome boy a rapist (as I’ve heard he was in the books).

Or would that be too unpalatable for a Sunday night?
