Hi, Why do some men wear wigs like Dr Choake and Carey Warleggan while others do not? Is it status or age related? Thank you. Enjoying the blog.

You’re reading my mind oddly enough with this question, I expected people to ask about the wigs! Poldark’s era overall was a transitional period for men’s hair styles. The older men still wore wigs, while the younger men are wearing their natural hair styled. I am not sure about doctors but I know characters like Rev. Halse had to wear wigs as part of their occupational uniform. There’s a bit more I can go into here on this topic but I’ll add men’s (and women’s) wigs to the future post list.
