Let’s take the Strength card, which features Demelza, as an example. #PoldarkPBS. HANSON-ORR: Hardest question by far. I’m very familiar with the Poldark series, its characters and their traits, so it was a case of trying to align all those things with such a highly meaningful tarot card—I used a combination of story arcs, journeys and personalities in what I hope is a fairly accurate match-up. HANSON-ORR: The Rider-Waite deck! Poldark continues Sunday at 9pET/8pCT on PBS Masterpiece. Out of the whole deck, I’m rather fond of Ossie’s card. Rikki Hanson-Orr, the woman behind the cards and a member of SMMS, Poldark‘s UK social media team, kindly obliged. It started just as an idea that I threw out while we were planning our campaign for Series 4, imagining just a small side project that some of the fans would appreciate—wow, little did I know.
Of course, philanthropy was not George's thing, except when it improved his standing with the nobility. Curious as to how those brilliant #Poldark tarot cards are made?

Enjoy… pic.twitter.com/AkhEjkai2I, — Social Media Gurus (@SMMS_Guru) July 16, 2018. The original card has the Fool precariously close to the edge of a big drop, his unknowing doom waiting beneath him. HANSON-ORR: I’ve always been fascinated by tarot cards, but I’ve never learnt to read them—I’ve tended to appreciate them from afar for the artwork and the mysterious allure! In some cards, I’ve drawn almost exactly what the Rider-Waite set has, with a few adjustments; others, I’ve had to design from scratch because they don’t feature a person or would otherwise be a little inappropriate—I doubt any of the cast would appreciate being the naked couple on the original Lovers card, for example. © 2020 North Texas Public Broadcasting, Inc.

HANSON-ORR: The characters were chosen with great care and deliberation.

Strength represents one overcoming their instinctive nature, and controlling it with the more “refined self”, shall we say—basically having an inner strength!
Make ‘Being Human’ a priority for lockdown binge viewing! I did a lot of reading about them in the run up to creating the deck, and assigned characters to cards as best as I saw fit, but it was a painful process—I really wanted it to be right, not just for the sake of any fans who might be tarot experts, but also just out of respect for both the characters and the deck itself.

In the 1960s, Blakiston appeared in three episodes of The Avengers as well a number of ITC productions such as The Saint, Department S and the 1969 Randall and Hopkirk (Deceased) episode "Never Trust a Ghost". MASTERPIECE: Is there any Aunt Agatha in you? No doubt some people will disagree with me, but from what I know and understand about these characters, I think I’ve done them justice.

Behold the official, Aunt Agatha (actress) sanctioned Poldark tarot cards, and the story of their creation! Aunt Agatha, the fabulous Cornish grande dame who has, quite possibly, made the absence of Downton Abbey‘s Dowager Countess just a bit easier to deal with for many of us on Sunday nights, is first and forever a Poldark…resiliant, wily and one who resists the Warleggan occupation of Trenwith with all the fervour she can muster, sparing what energy she has left to look out for the Poldarks both at home and at Nampara. In 1986, Blakiston played the villain Bess Sedgwick opposite Joan Hickson's Miss Marple, in the episode "At Bertram's Hotel" of the BBC's Miss Marple series.

Aunt Agatha (Ross and Francis’s great aunt), played so brilliantly by Caroline Blakiston, is one of my favourite Poldark characters.Acerbic, ancient and fortune-telling, Aunt Agatha has been guiding us through plot twists since the first episode of series one, and she’s been locking horns with George throughout this series. MASTERPIECE: What do you think Aunt Agatha would make of these cards?
Caroline Georgiana Blakiston (born 13 February 1933) is an English actress. MASTERPIECE: How did you go about creating the symbolism of the cards? She portrayed Mon Mothma, the primary political leader of the Rebel Alliance in the 1983 Star Wars film, Return of the Jedi.
