ai­dan Turner and writer Deb­bie Hors­field on why we can ex­pect tears and feuds in the 2018 se­ries…

TV Times - - Idnrtaemrvaiew -

So, is Ai­dan Turner look­ing for­ward to re­turn­ing to Corn­wall in Septem­ber to film the fourth se­ries? ‘Yes, ab­so­lutely,’ he tells us. ‘There is more story to tell and we’re do­ing a de­cent job of it, so it will be nice to be com­ing back.

‘There’s talk of my on-screen horse, Sea­mus, need­ing to re­tire as he is 17 now. I love him, he’s a real star, and I’ve be­come hugely at­tached to him, ob­vi­ously, but if he needs to re­tire...’

Screen writer Deb­bie Hors­field is cur­rently fin­ish­ing off the scripts for se­ries four, but she took time out to give us some hints about what to ex­pect…

Who’s back?

‘The usu­als! Ross and Demelza, George and El­iz­a­beth, Dwight and Caro­line – and also Drake and Mor­wenna. There will cer­tainly be some tears shed in se­ries four.’

What’s in store?

‘The story moves to the years 1796 to 1799. We’re fo­cus­ing on part of The Four Swans [book six of Win­ston Gra­ham’s sto­ries] and all of The An­gry Tide [book seven].’

What’s hap­pen­ing With ross?

‘Ross as a char­ac­ter is con­stantly evolv­ing.

Like all the char­ac­ters in Poldark, he has some lessons to learn. Ob­vi­ously, he’s get­ting older and wiser – but there will al­ways be a re­bel­lious side to him. And his feud with George es­ca­lates…’

More to come?

‘We al­ways take things one se­ries at a time and, at this point, we have no idea yet whether we’ll be asked to con­tinue be­yond se­ries four. Hav­ing said that, we’ve hugely en­joyed the process so far and would be happy to con­tinue.’

Happy ev­ery af­ter? What’s in store for Dwight and Caro­line?
