Poldark  •  By  •  0 Comments

RADIO TIMES – The next series of Aidan Turner drama Poldark will start on BBC1 in June, RadioTimes.com can exclusively reveal.

A BBC spokeswoman confirmed the news: “The earlier filming schedule on this series means that we can bring the much anticipated third series back sooner for fans to Sunday nights in June.”

The second series aired in the autumn against ITV drama Victoria but senior BBC sources were insistent that the decision for series 3 was not about avoiding a clash with rival show but about giving viewers a “summer treat”.
Other sources also point to the fact that the first series of Poldark aired in the spring, with production sources noting that it would fill what can sometimes be a barren time for drama lovers.

Filming for series 3 started in September, a little earlier than series two started filming, as the team sought to get some better weather than the rather gloomy and wintry recent run of episodes.

However fans of both dramas and Mammoth Screen – which makes both Poldark and Victoria – will be happy that the Cornish period drama avoids a likely clash with the second series of the rival ITV drama starring Jenna Coleman which is expected to air in the autumn again.

The scheduling clash split the audience last autumn with both shows averaging just over 6 million viewers. Series 1 of Poldark averaged more than 8m viewers per episode and a move to earlier in the year has long been on the cards as RadioTimes.com revealed last September.

Earlier this year, Poldark star Eleanor Tomlinson said that the decision to schedule the drama against ITV period show Victoria last autumn was a “real shame”.

Speaking at the Radio Times Covers Party, the actress, who plays Ross Poldark’s wife Demelza, insisted that the audience shouldn’t have had to choose between the Cornish period drama and ITV’s series.
“I think it’s a real shame that they came out at the same time. It doesn’t make any sense to me!” she said in the interview. “I think it did split the audience. At the end we were equal and that’s really good. I think Poldark pulled through.”

ESTEE LAUDERHow will you be spending the holidays this year? What are you most looking forward to?
I’ll be at home with my family in the countryside. I am filming season 3 of Poldark [the British television series in which Wilde stars] until just before Christmas, so the time at home will be a welcome break. I want to make it magical for my two boys. It is my youngest son’s first Christmas.

What do the holidays mean to you?
Being at home with family and wrapped up warm inside with log fires and lots
of food.

Do you have a family tradition you take part in every year?
Every year we have a big dinner on Christmas Eve, then go to Midnight Mass in the Cathedral. It’s always freezing but so festive and romantic.

What is the most memorable gift you’ve ever received?
When I was 9, I was given a puppy. She lived for 18 years and we were very close. She was definitely the best Christmas present I’ve ever had.

What is #1 on your wish list this year?
Piano lessons. I have long fingers so I’ve always been told I should be a natural!

What do you plan on gifting this year?
I like to buy things for my husband that he can have forever and that will hold a memory. I have been giving him a piece of art each Christmas for the last few years.

Are you a last minute kind of shopper, or do you like to plan ahead?
A bit of both. I like planning, but also feel a last minute dash to shops is part of Christmas too!

Do you change up your beauty routine to account for all the extra holiday merriment?
I make sure to use a heavier, more nourishing moisturizer to stop my skin from getting dry from central heating. I love Revitalizing Supreme+.

THE TIMES – When Gabriella Wilde and her husband first contemplated a move to the country, the actress and former model was hesitant. Now, standing in the revamped kitchen of her Somerset home, blonde ponytail swishing as she makes herbal tea, she couldn’t be more content.

If it wasn’t for the relocation, she might never have bagged a role as the coquettish Caroline Penvenen in Poldark – her minxy antics have been thrilling the 5m-plus viewers of the drama’s second series. Nor would she have given birth to her second son in the master bedroom suite (“The builders had to put up scaffolding to hold up the birth pool. They obviously thought I was completely mad”), or have an immaculate designer farmhouse.

Hillhouse, her rambling home, is set in glorious countryside just outside Bruton. A turning takes you onto a gravelled drive where you are greeted with spectacular autumnal views; you can just about make out King Alfred’s Tower amid the fields and trees. Through a nondescript arch, you enter a wild, overgrown garden set within a courtyard, then a grey door leads you into the quirky property that Wilde, 27, shares with her musician husband, Alan Pownall, and their sons, Sasha, 2, and Shiloh, five months.

Formerly three cottages, now conjoined, the property was on the market for œ1.3m in 2015, but with the help of a local property finder, the couple bought it for a little more than œ1m. “This was the first one we both felt was right,” Wilde recalls. “The view was incredible – I came in and was shocked by it. You can see for miles. It’s really a special spot and it has a calm energy.”

The peace and quiet was soon disrupted by an extensive year-long refurbishment, under the guidance of the interior designer Sophie Ashby. The layout was reconfigured and the downstairs living area, which has an Aga, a woodburner, a fireplace and radiators, is now free-flowing yet cosy. “I’m someone who hates being cold,” says Wilde, who is dressed in a black poloneck jumper, spray-on grey jeans and chunky black boots.
