Very nice: PBS has a sweet series of short videos on the characters of Masterpiece: Poldark.

From the scenic filming locations, to the whimsical costumes–get an exclusive, behind-the-scenes look at the making of this new cult classic.

There is one on the costumes used in the series where Aidan Turner, Eleanor Tomlinson, and Heida Reed discuss the clothes that helped them realize their characters, from coats to corsets.

There is this one where actress Eleanor Tomlinson and Aidan Turner explore the “force of nature” that is Demelza Carne.

And this where Aidan Turner talks about his experience of riding on horseback through beautiful Cornwall:

There’s a look at Ross and Elizabeth having a bit of fun during the making of the dancing scenes.

And of course you can see Demelza’s top 5 “best” curtseys through the season.
