THE cast and crew of Poldark have returned to the Duchy to start filming the second series of the iconic BBC Cornish drama.Work began this week just two weeks after it was reported that a deal worth an estimated £50 million had been agreed which will see the remake of the Seventies’ series remain on TV screens until 2020.
