5 television shows filmed in Cornwall
Sep 2018
 

With its rugged clifftop scenery, beautiful open countryside, and picturesque fishing harbours, Cornwall is a popular filming location for many TV production companies.  If you’re considering moving to the area and want to get a better idea of the local landscape or if you already live here and want to see if your favourite pub made it onto the small screen, add these to your viewing list:

                      

Poldark

Poldark fever is still going strong and the series has gained fans all over the world, thanks to the stunning Cornish scenery and the brooding good looks of Aidan Turner’s Ross Poldark. Set in 18th Century Cornwall, the series is based on Winston Graham’s famous Poldark novels, which follow the story of British Army officer turned mine owner, Ross Poldark following his return home from the American Revolutionary War. The production is filmed in several prominent locations throughout the county, including Bodmin Moor, Charlestown, Gunwalloe beach, and Wheal Owles tin mine.

Doc Martin

Featuring Martin Clunes as the titular curmudgeonly local GP with an aversion to blood who moves from London to the fictional Cornish village of Portwenn, Doc Martin has been gracing our screens for over a decade. Capturing viewers’ hearts with its eccentric characters and strong sense of community, the show is filmed in the quaint seaside village of Port Isaac, where hordes of tourists flock each year to have their pictures taken outside Doc Martin’s surgery.

Wycliffe

Based on the detective novels written by W. J. Burley, Wycliff was a popular ‘whodunnit’ crime series that ran between 1994 and 1998. Its Cornish setting played an important role in the show, highlighting topical regional issues such as the struggling fishing industry, reliance on tourism, and long-term unemployment. Filmed in locations all over the county, with a production office in Truro, the show was a virtual travel brochure for the county. 

Jamaica Inn

Daphne du Maurier’s classic novel about a young woman’s entanglement in the smuggling industry in 19th Century Cornwall has inspired many TV and film adaptations, most recently a three-part BBC series in 2014. Filmed in several locations throughout the county, most notably on the wild and windswept landscape of Bodmin Moor, Jamaica Inn perfectly captures the isolated beauty of the region. Visitors can still lodge at the famous inn that inspired the novel and learn about the real-life murderers and villains of the time in its fascinating Smugglers’ Museum.

And Then There Were None

Agatha Christie fans are probably familiar with this tale of ten strangers invited to stay on an isolated island off the Devonshire coast for a weekend retreat that ends in murder. What they may not realise is that the 2015 mini series was actually filmed in Cornwall. Starring Poldark heart-throb Aidan Turner, Game of Thrones star Charles Dance, and Jurassic Park actor Sam Neill, the show features many well-known Cornish beauty spots, including Kynance Cove, Holywell Bay, and Mullion Cove.
