‘Poldark’ S03 starring Aidan Turner to air in BBC One next month
30 May 2017 : Katie McNeice
The much-anticipated third series is due to air Sunday nights from June, with Turner returning to his role as Ross Poldark.

Showrunners have revealed there will be many new additions to the cast this season, as well as new locations fronting as France, such as Berkley Castle in Gloucestershire to coincide with the impending French revolution in 1794.

‘Poldark’ is based on the novels of Winston Graham, with Debbie Horsfield adapting the work for the small screen. The series picked up the Audience Award at the 2016 BAFTAs.

Turner also features at the Boatman in the upcoming ‘Loving Vincent’, Dorota Kobiela ad Hugh Welchman’s feature film about the life and mysterious death of Vincent Van Gogh. Saoirse Ronan and Chris O’Dowd also feature in the project, which is composed of 65,000 frames from 125 painters.

Michael Ray, Producer:
“The world of Poldark expands again in series three as we head across the sea to violent revolutionary France, meanwhile on the home-front we meet the richest and most powerful people in Cornwall. And they all want a piece of Ross.

“It was a great challenge to create the world of France, which we did on location in Cornwall and Bristol. It’s a much darker and colder place than our beloved Cornwall and it poses a constant threat to our heroes at every turn. Berkley Castle in Gloucestershire was transformed into a guillotine-happy port town and Bishop’s Palace in Wells, Somerset was turned into a deadly Convent-come-Prison for a week – and they saw a lot of action! Our stunt co-ordinator had his work cut out for him.”

Roopesh Parekh, Producer:
“Debbie Horsfield’s extraordinary talent for weaving explosive events with the delicate struggles of a marriage has reached new heights. Ross and Demelza finally have some wealth and success and their eyes are opened to a much grander world than the one they have previously inhabited, but the secrets of the past continue to hang over them and they are pushed and pulled in different directions. Adapted from ‘The Black Moon’ and ‘The Four Swans’ in the Poldark book series, the shadow of the Black Moon is felt over the whole series. There will be some tragic losses this year.”
