Poldark season 5←Poldark season 4
This time we will move a few years after the events of the previous part. The fourth season left the Poldark family in 1799 on the eve of the expectation of a new century and change. The fifth season is based on the 8th book by Winston Graham “The Stranger from the Sea”, which covers two years 1810 and 1811. There are already more descendants of Ross and Demelza in the center of the plot. The historical events taking place during this period are significant in that George III was recognized as incapable and his powers temporarily passed to his eldest son George IV, Prince of Wales. Such a change of government affected the lives of the subjects of the monarchy, including the Poldark and Warleggan families. The new industrial era began to gradually enter the life of the British, creating new difficulties and problems.
