Poldark

Meet the location manager for the National Trust

The film team liaises between National Trust properties and film and TV location managers on projects ranging from daytime shows to big-budget dramas.

They have assisted on several upcoming series including Poldark series 5, The Crown series 3, new Netflix show Watchmen and the BBC’s latest adaptation of A Christmas Carol, starring Tom Hardy, plus the Downton Abbey film.

The highly anticipated last instalment will return to screens later this month to conclude Poldark's journey. 

The trailer shows Ross Poldark return to Westminster to challenge the king in an attempt to save his friend, while Cornwall appears to descend into chaos. Elsewhere, George Warleggan is still grieving the loss of his wife Elizabeth and, after escaping her abusive husband and finally marrying her love Drake Carne, there's trouble ahead for Morwenna as the teaser shows her distraught as she holds onto her stomach.

The new series takes place after a time-jump of ten years, which fans of the books by Winston Graham (on which the series is based) have been expecting. Horsfield, who has written every episode of the four previous series has a cunning approach to seamlessly weaving in this passage of time. 

The drama will pick up in the wake of the shocking death of Ross Poldark’s long time paramour and, latterly, enemy Elizabeth Warleggan.
