Filming Finishes on Forthcoming BBC One Drama, Poldark.

A new Series of Poldark will be starting in 2015, 40 years after the original series.

Based on the books by Winston Graham this is the story of British officer Ross Poldark who returns to his native Cornwall after the Revolutionary War after escaping as a prisoner of war. He finds that because he was believed dead, his home has fallen into ruin and his estate has shifted to his mercenary uncle following the death of his father. His uncle has committed to selling the family copper and tin mines to a ruthless local land baron while his former fiancée has agreed to marry his cousin in his absence.

Aidan Turner will star as Ross and Robin Ellis, who played Ross in the original television adaptation, will play Reverend Halse.
