Prepare for holiday inspiration as Cornwall’s dramatic landscape is showcased on prime time TV with the return of Poldark!
Yes, Ross, Demelza, Elizabeth and that nasty George Warleggan are back as Poldark returns to our screens on September 4. For 10 weeks, Sunday night conversation will be all about Cornwall, Ross’ hair and whether or not he intends to take his short off again…
The drama makes a welcome return after a 16-month break following the roaring success of the first series, which pulled in 9.5 million viewers at its height. Not only did it enthral audiences with strong storylines and acting performances but it was also credited for having a hugely positive impact on Cornish tourism industry.
It showcased Cornwall’s natural beauty in all its glory, with dramatic coastal and cliff-top scenes aplenty. And now viewers can get ready for hit of the stunning Cornish landscape as Poldark returns.
Leading actor Aidan Turner, who plays Ross Poldark, said the show “will pick up exactly where we left off from last year”.
“So it’s a time when Ross and Demelza have just lost their child, his company is down the pan, they’re broke, and he’s been arrested. It looks like he’s going to prison. It’s a cheery beginning,” he told MCM Comic Con earlier this year.
Viewers can expect more tension between Ross and his former lover Elizabeth as well the continued rivalry with the nasty Warleggans.
However, writer Debbie Horsfield had some bad news for Aidan’s army of female fans after revealing that he’d be keeping his shirt on in this series. His shirtless-scything scene last year sent hearts racing and that particular scene even went on to win Top TV Moment of 2015 in a poll for Radio Times. But Ms Horsfield told the Independent “Autumn is very chilly in Cornwall”.
