'Poldark': Season 3 Finale Recap

Previously, on Poldark: Caroline and Dwight get married, because everything else on this show right now is pure misery, and we deserve at least some joy. George knows Valentine is probably not his son, Morwenna’s disgusting husband is forcing himself on her constantly, and Ross and Demelza’s marriage is in shambles again, thanks to Ross’s inability to communicate with his wife, and Demelza’s attraction to Hugh Armitage. Everything is garbage, basically.

Despite the fact that this is a season finale, this episode doesn’t exactly provide anyone with a particularly happy ending. The only folks who seem even remotely happy are the recently married Enyses, and that’s basically just because Dwight and Caroline receive approximately a combined minute of screentime. (That might actually make them lucky and better off, to be honest.)

On the upside, the Poldark finale does seem to finally realize one thing. It’s the women of Cornwell that make this story worth watching. Almost every single interesting thing about this episode is driven by the women in it, a refreshing twist which this show could stand to embrace more often. (And here’s hoping it does, when the series returns next year.)

‘The Durrells in Corfu’: Season 2 Episode 6 Recap

When we last visited the Durrells, Gerry was giving Donald advice to woo Margo, a Greek-Anglo cricket match went terribly wrong and Vasilia broke things off with Larry (who wasn’t really that heartsick about it). Most importantly Louisa is left with a decision to make about her future with Hugh that could take her away from her beloved adopted home.

In this final episode of The Durrels in Corfu Season 2, a population explosion is taking place on Corfu. With a potentially fatal wound thrown in the mix, however, Dr. Petridis (Alexis Conran) can’t handle all the medical emergencies alone. Considering we won’t be seeing the Durrells for a while, I’m going to break down this week’s monumentous events according to the involvement of each family member.

There are less than two months to go until the premiere of Victoria Season 2 on Masterpiece. This is great news in and of itself, obviously. But it also means that the floodgates of promotion are officially open. (This is a good thing, by the way.)

With only a few short weeks to go until Season 2 begins, prepare yourselves to see all kinds of trailers, promotional clips, behind-the-scenes photos and cast interviews start popping up all over. It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and a real balm to the spirits of US fans who had to watch our UK friends get all the goodies a couple months ago. Get ready to rejoice.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, which means the countdown to new Doctor Who is on!

Of course, this year’s holiday installment is a slightly bigger deal than usual, since the episode will mark Twelfth Doctor Peter Capaldi’s last outing in the TARDIS and Jodie Whittaker’s debut as the series’ first female Doctor. Though, of course, most of us know that we’ll see Thirteen for all of two minutes. But still. It will be a franchise-defining moment.
