Poldark upon our horizon
July 9, 2014
We are very excited to see the making of the new series of Poldark on our horizon, with Aiden Turner taking on the role of Ross Poldark. It is a series of novels based here in Cornwall by author Winston Graham.
It is a wonderful tale of a British Army Officer, Ross Poldark, who returns to his home in Cornwall from the American Revolutionary War. However heartbreak strikes as he learns that his fiancée, Elizabeth Chynoweth, is about to marry his cousin in the knowledge that Ross has perished in battle.
After the revolutions in America and France, the British working classes are forced to question poverty & Aristocrats to open their eyes to the loss of their wealth. Ross, in the wake of his heartbreak, reopens one of his family's tin mines in the hope of changing his fortunes. Will he ever repair his heart from his loss in love?
Of course, we won't give it all away & it is definitely worth having a read to transport yourself to 18th century Cornwall- the blue skies & green fields haven't changed a bit.
The new series adaptation is set to air on our screens on BBC One in 2015.
