Shooting is underway on the third series of the BBC period hit Poldark.
The second season has just begun airing in the UK – let’s hope we’re not too far behind – and continues the adventures of Ross Poldark (Aidan Turner) and his wife Delmelza (Eleanor Tomlinson). Set in Cornwall in 1790, the latest series finds Ross fighting for his freedom after his nemesis George Warleggan (Jack Farthing) tries to have him hanged as a revolutionary.
The third series of Poldark will take up the story four years later and will introduce a number of new cast members to the show, including Harry Richardson (Doctor Thorne) and Tom York (Olympus) as Demelza’s brothers Drake and Sam, and Ellise Chappell (New Blood) as Morwenna, cousin of Elizabeth Chenoweth (Heida Reed)
Writer /executive producer Debbie Horsfield says: “We’re thrilled to be kicking off series three with a fantastic array of new characters and a story which scales new heights of conflict, feuding, passion and drama.”
