Filming underway on Poldark S4 in UK

Aidan Turner & Eleanor Tomlinson are joined by new cast members in 2018.

Filming on Season 4 of Poldark began this week in the UK.

Aidan Turner and Eleanor Tomlinson are shooting in Cornwall, Bristol and locations in London, based on the novels by Winston Graham. Also returning are Harry Richardson and Tom York as Drake and Sam Carne, Beatie Edney as Prudie and Josh Whitehouse as Lieutenant Hugh Armitage, who remains deeply in love with Demelza.

Next season they are joined by Rebecca Front (War And Peace, The Thick Of It) as Lady Whitworth, Ossie’s formidable mother, and Max Bennett (The Hollow Crown) is Monk Adderley, an unscrupulous society figure who is on a collision course with the Poldarks.

Elizabeth Kilgarriff, BBC Executive Producer, said: “The BBC One viewers adore Poldark and we can’t thank them enough for their continued support across the last three series. The hard work and dedication of the production team and cast is why the show just keeps getting better. Debbie’s scripts for series four are some of the best yet, and I can’t wait to share what she has in store with the fans!”

It is expected on ABC in 2018.

1796: Ross (Turner) must defend Cornwall from an empowered George Warleggan (Jack Farthing), and risks everything he holds dear as he embarks on a political journey which takes him to the nation’s capital. Demelza (Tomlinson) finds her loyalties torn, Elizabeth (Heida Reed) tries to strengthen her marriage, Morwenna (Ellise Chappell) continues to be oppressed by husband Reverend Ossie Whitworth (Christian Brassington), and the Enyses (Luke Norris and Gabriella Wilde) are tested as never before.

  1. Series three was a travesty as the writer decided that she could dictate the story better than the real writer. Debbie Horsfield will have an uphill battle to win back the true Poldark fans.

    1. Glad it wasn’t just me that noticed that the script and story in S3 seemed to be a bit off the better quality of season 1 and 2. Great cast but seemed to drag on a bit in season 3. Anyway – here’s hoping things get back on track in S4!

    2. My mum and I had a discussion about this season after watching the last episode, and we both felt it wasn’t up to par either. We thought that the story line went off in a few places and left us “shaking our heads”. Not having read the books, I don’t know how accurate it was, but just didn’t seem to me that characters would act in certain ways in particular situations.

  2. I still have season 3 on my dvr. I always find it hard to start watching a season of a show that I like, in a genre that isn’t for me. I am afraid the “suck fairy” will have gotten to the show.
