After last week's overseas exploits, Poldark retreats back to the gloriously-filmed Cornish shores for an episode that's far more sedate and yet still a lot of sexy Sunday night fun. There's no crack of flintlock pistols, no explosions and, though it mildly threatens it, no death.

But we do get... toads.

Toads? Toads. The blighters have taken up residence at Trenwith and George Warleggan (Jack Farthing), Turd of Toad Hall, is not best pleased. They're disrupting his lie-in with Elizabeth (Heida Reed).

Now, there should be nothing interesting about a man being stirred out of his bed by toads, but weirdly Poldark makes it work thanks to the ever-reliable dramatic magic of schadenfreude.

George has spent the entirety of the show's three series ladder-climbing and cultivating his own brand of evil – Farthing has that disdainful smirk down pat – and now there's the immense satisfaction of watching the egotistical bastard being brought down by a triviality.

The culprit who brought these toads to the a-hole? Drake Carne (Harry Richardson), leaving them as a gift for Morwenna (Ellise Chappell), like the world's worst Milk Tray Man. This show has a history of men pathetically wooing women – it was only last year, after all, that George brought a generous portion of nine sweets to Elizabeth.

Drake and Morwenna are likeable characters, but lately their will-they-won't-they romance is now closer to "Get on with it, yeah?" and thankfully the show knows it. There's only so long you can watch hot young people moon awkwardly at each other before it becomes either boring or Love Island.

George, falsely convinced that Ross is filling the place with toads as some sort of schoolboy prank, has a patrol set up around the pond and it's only thanks to Aidan Turner that Drake doesn't get arrested the next time he pays a midnight visit with his bulging sack. (Of toads. Bulging sack of toads.)

Yes, Ross is always there for his fellow man. Like Dwight – he helps Cornwall's PTSD GP by bringing in handsome Hugh Armitage (Josh Whitehouse) to help him deal with his PoW flashbacks.

Luke Norris ably and sympathetically plays a shadow of his former self, as the stalwart surgeon is triggered by the most unassuming of events. It's good to see the aftermath of his ordeal dealt with, rather than swept under the rug of other plots. Seeing Dwight admit his condition to Caroline (Gabriella Wilde) is a particularly moving moment, a great exercise of Norris's talent.

Drake, meanwhile, finds he hasn't escaped George's wrath after all as spiteful Warleggan has him framed for Bible theft. Ross goes to George to bargain for Drake's life with George – good news for Poldark viewers, because any scene between Turner and Farthing has an irresistible electricity to it.

Their dialogue here is like a game of ping-pong briskly played with a lit stick of dynamite. And the paddles are on fire. Heck, the whole table's on fire and the mutual hatred fizzes as they bat back and forth.

Warleggan eventually frees Drake, but it's not because of Ross's words. He's playing chess with people's lives (that's right, George is good at chess and Dynamite Ping-Pong). Drake escapes the rope only because Morwenna reluctantly agrees to being roped into marrying her creepy suitor Osborne (Christian Brassington).

Turns out Ozzie's a bit of a foot-fetishist and hey, no kink-shaming, but it's just surprising to see that in a Sunday-night period drama, where the raunchiest thing previously was a man scything topless. Sure enough, it's pitched here as something a little sordid.

Watching him enjoying a prostitute's tootsies like a hungry man approaching a foot-long sub is pure set-up for the misery that chaste Morwenna and her feet will face, in a life where she'll have to toe the line as his sexual plaything rather than be an equal in marriage.

She becomes the new Mrs Whitworth, and with just her eyes Ellise Chappell communicates all the hollow desperation of a woman who's been mansplained into a life of misery.

It's a downbeat end to another strong episode of Poldark. This third series has so far kept the quality consistent, while exploring a variety of tones and themes. Now it remains to be seen whether writer Debbie Horsfield will flip the script again and give us a happy ending in a few weeks' time.
