It's a Wrap!

Filming on the fifth and final series of Poldark wrapped today, leaving us all with a bittersweet feeling. Sad that this is the final series but happy that we have the drama itself to look forward to later in the year.

It was first announced the Aidan Turner would play Ross in a new adaptation of Poldark back in February 2014. Since then, this blog has followed the show from the first read through and start of filming in April 2014 to today's wrap.  And what a journey it has been!  Not only have we had a fabulous drama to enjoy but we've been treated to behind-the-scenes pictures and videos and many fans have watched the filming on location and attended premieres, preview screenings, festivals and even set visits. It's all been great fun!

Thank you Aidan and Eleanor and all the cast for bringing the characters from Winston Graham's much-loved books to life; thank you Debbie Horsfield and Mammoth Screen for such a great adaptation and thank you to all the crew who have worked so hard behind the scenes.

The last day of filming inevitably brings some sorrow yet we can be heartened knowing that, while we came into the fandom because we liked the show, it is the friendships we have formed with other fans that will see us through this day and beyond. Thank you all!

Here are some 'last day/week' pics from the cast:
