First pictures from BBC's new TV adaptation of popular POLDARK novels are here giving us the first look of THE HOBBIT's Aidan Turner in costume! The eight part series will be set in 18th century Cornwall following the story of the rebellious Ross POLDARK as he returns from the American War of Independence to Cornwall, only to find that his old world is ruined: his father is dead, the family mine long since closed, his house wrecked and his sweetheart pledged to marry his cousin. But Ross finds that hope and love can be found when you are least expecting it in the wild but beautiful Cornish landscape.

  9. I cannot WAIT for Poldark. I've been a fan of Turner's since Being Human, waaaay before the Hobbit.

    1. me too, first I was angry because the actor who played the vampire in the pilot episode, and was great in it, was replaced by Aidan, but as the show progressed Aidan bought me over too :)

  10. INVISIBILITY sounds cool
    I still haven't seen the 2nd season of DaVinci... falling behind!!

    1. it's still airing, we're at the fifth episode now, methinks

      Delete
    2. Yeah, I don't think it's airing here in Oz though... Hmm, maybe it is and I just missed it. Grrr.

      Delete
    3. it is possible that it is, because Fox international channels are airing the show in more than 120 countries a day or two after the episode is aired in US

  11. Aidan Turner is one handsome, handsome man. :D

    And Invisibility sounds like something that happens to all of us just a little bit. :)

    1. my thought as well, most of the teens feel invisible (unless they're jocks or tarts) in High School at least sometime :)

      Delete
  12. Invisibility-oh God not another YA adaptation. Spare me from this hell.

    Anyway, Poldark has promise and I'll certainly check that out.

    I won't be around much for the next two weeks as I'll be out in the yard. I've still plants that need to be dug up and moved to fill bare spots and if I'm to have veggies they have to be in the ground by the 15th.

    1. It does have a nice plot, dear, so we shall give it a go since those kids aren't fighting any demons or falling for vampires and such crap :)

      We do wait anxiously for POLDARK.

      Call me over if you need assistance and I shall drop by to help you planting, dear :)

      Delete
    2. I need help in the worst way. I'm working out there for about 8 hours a day by myself. When you come by, don't forget to bring the wine and strawberries dear :)

      Delete
    3. even better, dear, I shall bring you some Scottish hunks to do the ploughing work in kilts :)

  13. II just hope they do a good job with the movie adaptation of Invisibility. Please not another Beautiful Creatures. A good movie that turns off the core fan base is never a good thing. Aiden's looking good in costume and it seems by the pics that these designers have done a great job. D. Demons is a wonderful show but I have too many shows already. Saw a few episodes over time so I know it deserves renewal.

    1. Fingers crossed, I'm hoping this will be more in the line of FAULT IN OUR STARS, more heartwarming than dystopian. Here at HOLLYWOOD SPY we strongly disapprove of aggressive YA novels in which kids are shown as killers or fighters.

      Give DA VINCI'S DEMONS a go when you can, it's the most brilliant show out there

  14. I think INVISIBILITY has some promise. I still haven't watched DA VINVI'S DEMONS. Got to get caught up.

    1. it's one of the best written shows out there, perfect for an educated and refined audience...

  15. Invisibility. So, his parents can see him also, right? Seems a bit odd, but sounds like a show some of the younger folk would like.
