Poldark’s Eleanor Tomlinson teases “rollercoaster” series 2
Demelza Poldark actress Eleanor Tomlinson has teased a “rollercoaster” second series for Poldark.
Speaking on This Morning ahead of the series’ return this Sunday, Tomlinson said: “Season two picks up where season one finished. We’re dealing with a loss of a child, Ross is going to be tried – who knows if he’s going to get off.
“It’s very tense, very upsetting, it’s a rollercoaster!”
The last series of the drama ended with Ross Poldark (Aidan Turner) being wrongly arrested for wrecking and murder, shortly after his and Demelza’s daughter Julia died from putrid throat.
What we’re curious about however is how the love triangle between Ross, Demelza and Ross’ former fiancée Elizabeth is going to proceed.
Tomlinson said “[Ross and Demelza’s] relationship is growing but there’s still turmoil to come.”
“Elizabeth stirring up trouble. I think that’s what people love about Ross and Demelza – they have a very realistic relationship.”
The second series of Poldark will adapt the story from Winston Graham’s third and fourth novels in the Poldark series, Jeremy Poldark and Warleggan.
It is hoped the series can achieve the same popularity it achieved during its first series in March 2015, when it helped BBC One achieve its highest ratings share for the first quarter of the year in 10 years.
