BBC Picture Gives Us Captain Poldark in Uniform

Aidan Turner as Ross Poldark BBC

 It's good to see Ross Poldark (Aidan Turner) in the uniform of an 18th century captain in this, the first picture of him released on 8 May by the BBC for their remake of the 1970's drama Poldark.

The Winston Graham novel opens with Ross in a carriage returning to Cornwall from the American War of Independence but last night Robin Ellis, who played Ross in the original series, tweeted that the carriage scene will not be in the latest adaptation. Robin plays the Reverend Halse in the new drama.

With that in mind, it's great to see from this picture and others from the filming in Corsham last week that we will still have a chance to admire Ross in uniform.

Poldark will air on the BBC in 2015.
