Interested in the Poldark season 5 premiere date in the United Kingdom? We’re here for you, as BBC One has finally unveiled the start date for the Aidan Turner – Eleanor Tomlinson series.
This date should look familiar to many of you — Sunday, July 14 at 9:00 p.m. local time. This date was leaked last week due to an erroneous listing that was later deleted; Personally, we wanted to wait to share it here at CarterMatt until it was 100% confirmed and the listing stayed online. It now has. We’re going to see the first of the final eight episodes then and the goal from there is to continue to bring you compelling stories week in and week out. Note: That initial premiere date leak wrongfully stated that there were six episodes in the final season instead of the eight we are getting.

So what’s coming up in terms of the Poldark season 5 premiere date? Rest assured, we come bearing all sorts of details! Check out the synopsis below:
The Poldarks look forward to life together in peace, but a plea from Ross’s old Army Colonel, Ned Despard (Vincent Regan), compels him to the capital.
As Demelza (Eleanor Tomlinson) manages their affairs in Cornwall she encounters disenchantment and a new opponent, Tess (Sofia Oxenham). George (Jack Farthing) meanwhile struggles to engage with the world after Elizabeth’s death and it falls to Cary (Pip Torrens) to expand the family empire – as Valentine (Woody Norman) struggles to find his place within it.
Arriving in London, Ross (Aidan Turner) finds a city gripped with paranoia, and is determined to save Ned from the conspiracy that imprisoned him.
George enters into an alliance with the merchant behind Ned’s imprisonment, Ralph Hanson (Peter Sullivan), whose business is in upholding the slave trade. Meanwhile, Geoffrey Charles (Freddie Wise) decides to follow in Ross’s footsteps and enter the military – but also finds himself drawn to Cecily Hanson (Lily Dodsworth-Evans), Ralph’s daughter.
As George’s grief leads the Warleggans into uncharted and worrying territory, Ross discovers a grave plot and is urged to heroism, while Demelza is forced into action herself back at home.
There’s a lot that is going on here within this episode, and it could offer some depth of the characters that we haven’t before seen. We didn’t necessarily think that we would have a chance to see this emotional side of George Warleggan on the series, but here we are. We’ll learn how he copes with death and if it changes him in unexpected ways. It’s so easy to just paint George with the “he’s a horrible person” brush, but he did love Elizabeth and he is still human. He hates Ross, but that doesn’t sap him of his ability to cope elsewhere.
