I've loved the Poldark Masterpiece series very dearly, too - though it is such melodrama, with so many people brooding on cliffs! I was immensely pleased with the book, which delves much deeper into the characters we've all come to love so well, and does so with astonishingly good writing.

Does Ross Poldark die in the books?
The book series goes on for a much longer time than the TV series does. The BBC show ends in 1799, but the books go on until 1820, when Ross is 60. He didn't die while on his mission and, in fact, he lived a life long enough to see his children grow up.
