It’s time to return to Cornwall! A Masterpiece favorite, Poldark, returns to Sunday evenings for a fourth season. The story picks up just where season three left it: Ross (Aidan Turner) and Demelza ( Eleanor Tomlinson) distrusting one another due to affairs with Elizabeth Warleggan (Heida Reed) and Hugh Armitage (Josh Whitehouse), Dwight (Luke Norris) and Caroline Enys (Gabriella Wilde) reunited, Morwenna Whitworth (Elise Chappell) miserable in her marriage, and George Warleggan (Jack Farthing) committed to tormenting Ross. As conflicts in Cornwall escalate, viewers see a new side of Ross this season as he embraces his political position and spends time in London where new intrigues await.
Journey from Cornwall to Corfu this fall with the return of The Durrells in Corfu! In contrast to Poldark, much of The Durrells is pure comedy as Louisa Durrell (Keeley Hawes) and her four children continue to live and grow in Corfu, Greece. While Louisa’s aunt Hermione returns to Corfu and gives her another family member to look after, her children dabble in new career and romantic pursuits.
Rounding out the fall lineup is a new miniseries based off of Victorian author Wilkie Collins’ The Woman in White. The story follows a young artist, Walter Hartright (Ben Hardy), as he accepts a position from the elderly Mr. Fairlie (Charles Dance) to instruct his niece, Laura Fairlie (Olivia Vinall), and her companion and half-sister, Marian Halcombe (Jessie Buckley). During his time at Limmeridge House tutoring the two ladies, he is visited by a mysterious woman dressed in white who has escaped from an asylum and bears a strong resemblance to Laura. And while Walter and Laura begin to fall for one another, Laura is engaged to and eventually marries Sir Percival Glyde (Dougray Scott), who appears as kind and gracious but has a sinister side.
