'Poldark': Season 3, Episode 7 Recap

Previously on Poldark: Dwight and Caroline get married publically, but their “wedding” just serves as an excuse to talk politics. Sir Francis Bassett tries to convince Ross to throw his hat into the ring for the empty MP seat, but he declines, insisting that he can’t be beholden to anyone’s interests but his own. Elsewhere, Morwenna’s marriage to Whitworth is a study in misery. And sassy old Aunt Agatha sadly meets her maker, but not before she tips George off that little Valentine might not be his.

Everything basically feels as though it’s falling apart in this episode of Poldark. There’s no joy, for anyone, and the episode’s most uplifting storyline centers around the reaffirmation that two young people still love one another even when they’re separated and one of them is forced to endure horrific abuse on a daily basis. Yikes.

Will anyone ever be happy again? 

‘The Durrells in Corfu’: Season 2 Episode 5 Recap

Previously on The Durrells in Corfu, the family rode out an unrelenting and unusual storm. Leslie went quite literally stir crazy. Larry, who had scuttled home with a case of the mumps, exasperated everyone with his infertility paranoia. But mostly notably Aunt Hermione returned to the island with a mysterious new friend in tow. Regrettably, her companion turned out to be a fraudulent medium who pounced on Louisa’s yearning for her late husband and attempted to profit from the family’s loss.

Fortunately for the Durrells, the sun came out and the fake spiritualist was unceremoniously run off. And it would appear that after last week’s emotionally harrowing experience, everyone’s attention has turned to love…and cricket.

'Poldark: Season 3, Episode 6 Recap

Previously, on Poldark: Morwenna makes up her mind to refuse George’s marriage plans for her, deciding that a life – even if it’s a poor one that's below her station – with Drake is what she wants. But when George frames Drake for theft and, as magistrate, threatens to have him hanged, Morwenna must marry the equally vile Reverend Whitworth in order to save his life. Elsewhere, Dwight struggles with a bad case of PTSD, and does his best to push Caroline away, but a heartfelt conversation between the two goes a long way toward getting their marriage back on track. (If you need a full recap of last week's episode, we have you covered right here.) 

'The Durrells in Corfu': Season 2 Episode 4 Recap

Last time on The Durrells in Corfu, Louisa railed against the reality of getting older; Gerry’s avoidance of a traditional education continued; Leslie discovered he has a talent for photography; and Vasilia’s seduction of Larry scored a dismaying result. Oh, and Margo was preoccupied with her spots…

This week however, an unusual weather event I’ll refer to as The Deluge commanded the everyone’s attention. Lugaretzia declares the storm an omen of death and leaves the cursed and extremely leaky house in a hurry. Gerry insists on bringing his menagerie inside which appears to be an inconvenience to which the family is resigned. And the family awaits the return of Aunt Hermione (Barbara Flynn) which has everyone on edge anyhow. Let’s look at the factors that resulted in a “too close for comfort” situation and prompted Louisa to refer to her children as Lumpy, Grumpy, Spotty and Ignorant, shall we?

‘Call the Midwife’ Wraps Filming on Season 7

It feels like it’s been an age since the last season of Call the Midwife ended, even if it was only several months ago in reality.

The medical drama follows the story of a group of nurse midwives and nuns who care for the residents of the economically disadvantaged neighborhood of Poplar. Call the Midwife, of course, is so much more than that though – really digging into the personal stories of all the different women involved. (It’s also great if you happen to need a good cry for whatever reason.)

As TV fans go, Midwife viewers are pretty lucky. Though there are some big cast changes headed our way next season, the series has already been renewed through Season 9. (The upcoming run of the drama will only be the series’ seventh season.) If you love the midwives, you’ve got a lot to look forward to over the next few years.

The drama recently wrapped production on Season 7, and posted a pretty adorable cast photo to mark the occasion to its social media accounts
