POLDARK is returning for its final season, making the fifth season must see TV.
We take you through the reasons why you must watch the show when it is back on our screens this Sunday (July 14).
Four reasons to watch the final series of Poldark
1) Aidan Turner
Let’s just start with the leading man Aidan Turner who plays Ross Poldark.
The Irish actor, 36, has wowed audiences as the handsome and brooding Ross since the show started in 2015.
He has also had fans swooning by continuing to take his top off to reveal his ripped torso (we will never forget the famous scything scene in series one).
Aidan also has a beautiful relationship on and off screen with Eleanor Tomlinson who plays his wife Demelza.
When the show wrapped filming in February 2018, they both shared sweet snaps of themselves kissing each other.
2) The star-cast
Not only do we have the handsome Aidan leading the cast, we also have the incredible Eleanor Tomlinson who plays the feisty Demelza Poldark.
Meanwhile, Heida Reed may have left the series but her on-screen husband Jack Farthing returns as Poldark’s nemesis George Warleggan alongside Luke Norris and Gabriella Wilde as Dwight and Caroline Enys.
Also returning in series five is Prudie (Beatie Edney), cleric Osborne Whitworth (Christian Brassington) and Hugh Armitage (Josh Whitehouse).
Drake and Morwenna Carne (Harry Richardson and Elise Chappell) and Drake and Demelza’s brother Sam (Tom York) are also back.

3) The stunning locations
Most of the action of the beloved BBC drama takes place against the backdrop of Cornwall’s breathtaking coastline and moors.
From historic mines being used for Ross’s struggling business to sandy beaches used as a backyard for Demelza, filming crew impressed viewers with the landscape in the show.
And many fans say that the scenery is the true star of the show.
The stunning, stone farmhouse used for the house of the Poldark family, Nampara, was filmed in the village of St Breward.
The village, which is on the west side of Bodmin Moor, boasts the highest church in Cornwall and a well, which is said to cure sore eyes.
4) The storyline
WARNING: Contains spoilers from season four
Every episode of Poldark is always filled with high drama that has you on the edge of your seat, and this series promises to be no different.
Elizabeth’s death in series four has had a profound effect on Poldark, so he decides to spend more time with his loved ones – away from Westminster – in the new episodes.
But this doesn’t last long as he’s forced to challenge the establishment while questioning his loyalties to King and country when an old friend comes to him asking for help.
Meanwhile, Demelza is facing danger closer to home, and George is courting corrupt powers that span the entire empire.
Demelza and Ross are also trying to repair their relationship.
