Six million watch Poldark finale

television

Six million viewers tuned in to the emotional final episode of Poldark (starring Aidan turner, inset) last night - and lamented the end of the first series.

The finale featured the sudden death of Poldark and Demelza's baby daughter Julia and ended with a cliffhanger which will run in to the second series.

The episode peaked with 6.1m viewers on BBC1, winning its 9pm slot. It averaged 5.9m and a 25.4pc share of viewers - more than last week but not matching the heights of the first episode - which secured almost seven million.

The drama, based on the novels of Winston Graham, was originally made for TV in the 1970s.
