MASTERPIECE: Do you have a favorite? Caroline Georgiana Blakiston (born 13 February 1933) is an English actress. In 1977 she appeared in Raffles as Lady Paulton, and also in Murder Most English as Helen Carobleat. HANSON-ORR: This was a fun one to draw—a dearly departed character who perhaps didn’t make the best decisions in his lifetime. I thought this suited Demelza down to the ground, given her way of trying to bring people together, and her otherwise pretty down-to-earth personality.

HANSON-ORR: It was actually the death of Aunt Agatha that inspired it—she was such a loved character, and her dying got such a big reaction from fans, I thought doing some kind of tribute in the new series would be both a cool feature and keeping her character alive a little longer via the social media. Again, while I’m no expert, it’s the deck I’m most accustomed to seeing, and is probably the one that most people will recognize.

How did you come to do it? I can’t wait for everyone to see the full deck! Funding for MASTERPIECE is provided by Viking® and Raymond James, with additional support from public television viewers and contributors to The Masterpiece Trust, created to help ensure the series' future. The original card has the Fool precariously close to the edge of a big drop, his unknowing doom waiting beneath him. Having watched this episode of Poldark, get ready for… The 17 Essentials of Poldark, Season 3, Episode 6 17. MASTERPIECE: We don’t yet have The Fool…We’re dying to know who you’d choose for that card! Behold the official, Aunt Agatha (actress) sanctioned Poldark tarot cards, and the story of their creation! In 1983, Blakiston played the wayward character of Lady Patience Hardacre in the satirical Granada television series Brass, which ran for three series. Poldark was one of the first shows I did a whole campaign for, and it’s been my baby ever since! It’s absolutely bursting with symbolism and I just love the look of them—the limited colors, the tiny details, the art style in general. HANSON-ORR: A lot of the symbolism is drawn directly from the Rider-Waite deck itself. Ross is discharged for medical reasons and returns home to find Warleggan occupying the house of his elderly aunt and expecting his first child by Elizabeth.
MASTERPIECE: What do you think Aunt Agatha would make of these cards? In 1980/81, she starred in the BBC/Australian TV World War II comedy series Private Schulz as The Countess.
I read as much as I could about the meanings of the cards, and selected characters from there—there was plenty of reshuffling before I settled on match ups, I can tell you that. Not everyone liked them, of course, but it wouldn’t be the internet if there wasn’t someone to disagree with you.
Strength represents one overcoming their instinctive nature, and controlling it with the more “refined self”, shall we say—basically having an inner strength! 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: I understand that in tarot, there are different decks with different looks, symbolism, stories, etc… Is there one that influenced you in making your Poldark cards? Curious as to how those brilliant #Poldark tarot cards are made? 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!
The Blakiston family originated in County Durham, and were related to the Blakiston baronets.. Bonus: Watch a time-lapse of The Magician card’s creation! Let’s take the Strength card, which features Demelza, as an example. It’s honestly been such an amazing thing, and all of the hours researching and creating have been 100% worth it. #PoldarkPBS.
Poldark continues Sunday at 9pET/8pCT on PBS Masterpiece. She portrayed Mon Mothma, the primary political leader of the Rebel Alliance in the 1983 Star Wars film, Return of the Jedi. HANSON-ORR: I think I’m more of a Morwenna, really, but if I could be half as brilliant as Agatha in my old age, I’ll die a happy woman. She appeared to great acclaim as Marjorie Ferrar in the BBC Television adaptation of Galsworthy's The Forsyte Saga in 1967.
