Aidan Turner (Being Human) will star as Ross Poldark in BBC One's new adaptation of Winston Graham’s acclaimed saga 'Poldark'.
Filming begins in Cornwall and Bristol in April 2014 and the series will be broadcast in 2015. We’ll bring you the latest news from the set right here on Tumblr.
bugger….. this wasn’t in my plan….
See, I know you wanna see AB get more big roles, and as nice as the prospect of him in Georgian clothes again (*drool*), I personally wouldn’t want Ross Poldark bleeding into my fond memories of William Garrow, as he inevitably would. Because Will was just too lovely. And Ross, well. SPOILERS. But basically: Elizabeth. >:-(
LOL, yes. AB (as Garrow) already resembles too much Robin Ellis (original Poldark). And yes - too much Elizabeth, not enough Demelza.
Virtually every photographer in Scotland was out last night Aurora-watching… unless it was cloudy of course. I’ve seen some stunning images from all over the country, and from Ireland too.
Normally it’s the northern part of Scotland that witnesses the spectacle but last night it appeared here on Islay. Whilst the Kp (Measure of Geomagnetic activity) occasionally exceeds 6.0 during an Auroral storm (greater than 6 is necessary for possible sightings at this latitude) you also need clarity, a cold atmosphere and ideally no moonlight. You also need a bit of luck, and I’ve been waiting around 4 years for all of the above to coincide!
These images are from Bridgend here on Islay at around 23:00.
Beautiful shots by James, especially as he also managed to catch the stars.
