For PBS And Their UK Partners To Host A BFI Style Poldark S4 2018 Event

Dear PBS, Rebecca Eaton and Mammoth Screen,

I am a passionate Poldark fan. I'm writing on behalf of the North American Poldark fans who are feeling left behind in comparison to our UK counterparts. I am using the term North American Poldark fan because there are a lot of Poldark fans in Canadian border cities who support PBS affiliates with donations and attending events.

I would love to be able to attend a US fan event like the BFI panel, and get the chance to watch some of the actors answer questions and interact with the fans. I know many other North American fans who would jump at the opportunity to attend an event like this. Many fans would like nothing better than a Season 4 2018 event such as a US premiere or a BFI style event with the Poldark leads Aidan Turner and Eleanor Tomlinson. And as a plus, I'm sure that the actors would appreciate not having to face the usual questions that UK journalists usually ask them. Please consider filming segments with them and the other actors for your fundraising telethons. And why not consider skyping in or inviting some of the other Poldark 2015 cast members or even Robin Ellis for telethons too?

Poldark continues to be very positively received by UK critics and UK fans. Overall the level of interest has sustained itself. I hope that PBS makes the most of their opportunities to present Poldark S4 to the critics and to promote Poldark to the wider viewing population, similar to the kind of PR campaign that Victoria received in 2017. I'm also hopeful that you will adjust your approach to social media for the US fans. We certainly notice it when the UK fans are given links to clips which we can't see, or have the chance to win signed items, etc.

Poldark is enjoyed by many, many fans all over North   America. We oftentimes feel ignored and left out.  To fill the void, several passionate Poldark North American fans have started to organize fan interaction events such as "Nampara Assembly".  I hope you hear our concerns and start to plan events for us, increase promotion for the show and adjust your social media strategy. I hope you take the time to engage with a very passionate fan base and do right by us. I know if you end up implementing some of these suggestions, I will be happy to increase my contributions to my local PBS station.
