What is the series about?

In 1783, Captain Ross Vennor Poldark came back from the American War of Independence to his home of Nampara in Cornwall after three years in the army. He discovers his father Joshua has died, his estate is in ruins and in a lot of debt, and his childhood sweetheart Elizabeth is engaged to his cousin Francis.

He meets a young woman called Demelza Carne at the Truro market and hires her as a maid but they fall in love and marry in 1787.
