He was rich, respectable, happy; one day he abandoned his wife for the sake of a youthful mistress; he loved; was not loved; and his life ended in disaster.
An ode to British television drama To celebrate the successful launch of the BBC's remake of the show Poldark, I thought I would make a quick blog post dedicated to British television drama.
British tv drama particularly period or crime based dramas are one of my favourite tv viewing experiences. There is nothing better than becoming hooked on an intense storyline, and although they may not be as long in series length as their american counter part, the few episodes we receive are able to keep me hooked from start to finish.
A bold and complex male lead, portrayed by Aidan Turner, lovable, strong willed female protagonists, in this case Demelza Eleanor Tomlinson tied together in a plot filled with romance, adventure and action. The stunning setting has the British coast to thank for its authentic style as Cornwall plays host for the set.
One cannot help but yearn for British summer time to return and for a trip to the sea! Eleanor Tomlinson is a wonderful versatile actress and has turned her hand to this role with apparent ease, she is a farmilliar face for the BBC and you may recognise her from the mini series of The White Queen.

Inspired by the success of this remake I thought I thought id celebrate the overall greatness of British Television Drama.
Downton has been going strong for 5 seasons and is set to return later this year for what might be its last.
Downton works so well because of the various story lines running parallel to each other capturing the romance, the scandal and the drama of the household. Because of the length of time Downton has been running for, its not surprising that fans have built up a strong relationship with the characters and uproar occurs whenever the shows talented team of writers dare do anything to harm one of the beloved characters.
Remember the Christmas episode scandal of ! My one criticism of the show would be the giant time hops between each series, I feel as if time is progressing too quickly, however the characters appear more or less unchanged by the passing time.
This flaw, although disappointing weighs far less than the overall beauty of the show, its stunning costumes and set make you yearn for a yesteryear and its scandalous plots will have you hooked until the very last episode. Mr Selfridge and The Paradise I hate shopping with a passion, but these two shows makes me want to love shopping!
The magic of the stores is encapsulated in the narrative, the gorgeous, glamorous sets and charming employees. The Paradise BBC The first season of the Paradise sees young shop assistant Denise Joanna Vanderham working her way up the store, whilst also engaging in a whirlwind romance with store owner Moray portrayed by Emun Elliott.
The show contains a certain amount of intrigue, with characters such as Jonas David Hayman giving an edge of mystery within the show. I've currently re-visited this show, thinking that perhaps I should give it a second chance, and honestly it is really worth it.
I am genuinely upset that it will not be renewed for a third series, and therefore must get around to reading the books on which it is based.
Unfortunately the second season of the Paradise was a disappointment to many viewers and ratings made a significant fall it will not be returning for a third season.
Mr Selfridge ITV Another department store based show centers around the exciting life of store owner Harry Selfridge and the his family and staff. The show, now in its third series, is still going strong, like Downton, Selfridges does not focus mainly on a set character it has a set of intertwining narratives through all areas of the store.
Harry Selfridge may own the store but this is in no way a mans world, there are some wonderful female cast members including Sherlocks Amanda Abbington and real life sisters Kara and Hannah Tointon.
Downton, Mr Selfridge and The Paradise are wonderful period dramas that romantisise the world of beauty and wealth during the times they are set.
All three shows focus mainly on the glamour of the time and separate themselves, as much as possible from the dangers occurring in the world around them such as the first world war, therefore making them wonderful shows for easy viewing if you fancy a bit of escapism.
Their valiant efforts to protect the monarch despite all odds whilst also overcoming personal daemons and pursuing heartfelt and often troublesome romances. Series one and two of the musketeers have encapsulated all the elements of a perfect period drama, in my opinion, and both have had me hooked throughout.
This is currently one of my favourite shows on tv and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a new and exciting drama.After it has consumed its nuclear fuel, it can no longer generate the heat and pressure required to fend off the force of gravity.
