Anyone remember Poldark? Set in 18th century Cornwall with a dashing hero….You do have to be over a certain age to remember it, as it was first on telly 1975-1977.

Well it’s coming back to BBC1 as a brand new eight part series. It will be based on the novels “Poldark” and “Demelza,”the first two in the Poldark series. The novels were written by author Winston Graham, and Pan Books are reissuing them to tie in with the series. The new editions are on order and many of Winston Graham’s other novels are in stock.

Pan Macmillan will also publish a new edition of “Poldark’s Cornwall”, in which Graham talks about the area that inspired his books. This new edition will be published in hardback on 23rd April 2015.

Robin Ellis played Poldark in the 70s series. This time Aidan Turner has been cast in the role. He played Kíli in the Hobbit, John Mitchell in Being Human and Dante Gabriel Rossetti in Desperate Romantics.
