Season 1

Poldark is a British period drama television series adapted by Debbie Horsfield from the Poldark novels by Winston Graham which begins when Ross Poldark returns home from the American War of Independence to find his old life in ruins, forcing him to embrace a bold new world.

Aidan Turner (The Hobbit Trilogy) and Eleanor Tomlinson (The White Queen) star as Ross Poldark and Demelza in Debbie Horsfield's adaptation of Winston Graham's acclaimed sweeping saga set in 18th century Cornwall.

Britain is in the grip of a turbulent crisis... falling wages, rising prices, civil unrest - only the bankers are smiling.

It's 1783 and Ross Poldark returns from the American War of Independence to his beloved Cornwall to find his world in ruins: his father dead, his house wrecked and his sweetheart engaged.

Also starring are Heida Reed (Silent Witness) as Ross' first love Elizabeth, Jack Farthing (The Riot Club) as ambitious banker George Warleggan, Kyle Soller (The Hollow Crown) as Ross' cousin Francis Poldark, Ruby Bentall (The Paradise) as Ross' cousin Verity, Warren Clarke (Red Riding) as Ross' uncle Charles Poldark, Phil Davis (Whitechapel) as Ross' lazy manservant Jud and Beatie Edney (Poirot) as Jud's wife Prudie, Alexander Arnold (Skins) as Ross' farm hand Jim Carter, Robert Daws (Holby) as Dr Choake and Richard Harrington (Hinterland) as Captain Andrew Blamey.

Robin Ellis, who played Ross in the first television adaptation of the Poldark novels in the 1970s, joins the cast for two episodes to play Reverend Halse.

Based on the novels by Winston Graham, Poldark is an eight part series written and created for television by Debbie Horsfield (Cutting It), produced by Eliza Mellor (Death Comes to Pemberley) and directed by Ed Bazalgette (A Mother's Son) and William McGregor (Misfits).

Graham wrote 12 Poldark novels starting with Ross Poldark in 1945 and ending with Bella Poldark in 2002. The internationally bestselling novels are set in Cornwall where Graham spent much of his life.

The executive producers are Debbie Horsfield, Karen Thrussell and Damien Timmer for Mammoth Screen, Polly Hill for the BBC and Rebecca Eaton for Masterpiece.
