A Look Back at 2017

As we head towards the start of a New Year here's a look back at a handful of Poldark highlights from 2017.  In no particular order:
  • Fans flocked to the BFI and Radio Times Festival in April to see Aidan Turner, along with writer Debbie Horsfield and executive producer Damien Timmer at the oddly named session Ross Poldark: Old-fashioned Hero for a Modern World. While much of the interview had the air of déjà vu about it, I did find nine snippets to pass on to our readers and there were plenty of photos from the event.

  • Just giving. One of my favourite things about production company Mammoth Screen is its support for charities. This year saw Poldark taking part in the Children in Need appeal with four CIN volunteers spending a day on the set.  Poldark prizes were given to charity auctions too including those held by LE Solidarity and Highgate has Heart, both of which help refugees. Ross's tricorn, signed by Aidan Turner, was a prize at a fundraiser lunch with Michael Parkinson for Cornwall Air Ambulance.
Here's wishing you all a very Happy New Year and the hope of lots of Poldark loveliness in 2018 xxx
