TRURO Cornwall TR3 6LQ
With filming confirmed to be wrapped for the fourth series of hit television drama Poldark, it appears that the much-loved show will be returning to our screens sooner rather than later; most likely in the early summer. Fans were initially wary when the BBC decided to move the show from its usual autumn airing spot to during the summer months last year, scared that the move from the peak TV release date marked the beginning of the end for the beloved show. Luckily for all, the summer viewing spot only peaked interest, with an average of five million people tuning in to catch up on the adventures of Ross Poldark. Continuing with the summer scheduling this year, rumour has it that Poldark could even be returning to our screens sooner!
Series four will take from the sixth and seventh books in Winston Graham’s series; ‘The Four Swans’ and ‘The Angry Tide’. The series will see Poldark take on Westminster, bringing a change of scene for viewers, moving some of the plotline away from the stunning coastline of Cornwall over to 18thcentury London. Fans of the Duchy need not worry though, as the show will still remain very much Cornwall based!
To match his new role in the big city, Aidan Turner’s costume has also seen a revamp, with a much smarter jacket and hat adorning Ross’ character, a welcome change from the scruffy coat and battered hat that we have come to know and love. Fans of the unruly look will not be too disappointed, however, as Poldark’s trademark wild hair remains!
Of course, the other main plot points for the coming season will revolve around Ross Poldark’s relationship with his wife, Demelza. Describing the upcoming series as ‘tempestuous’, Aidan Turner stated that their relationship starts off a little ‘rocky’, but that they will tackle the issues ‘in a very real way’. Turner believes the way the couple will be depicted in series four is ‘something an audience will understand’, as he says ‘it’s a very real relationship, these things can happen in a marriage’. We will have to wait and see what is in store for Mr and Mrs Poldark!
