A musical adaptation of 'Poldark' could be in the works.

The popular BBC one drama shows' creator, Debbie Horsfield, would "love" for the series, which stars Aidan Turner and Eleanor Tomlinson, to be made into a musical in the future, although she thinks if the project did hit the big stage it would "obviously" need "great big show-stopping" songs.

Speaking to The Sun Online, the creative mastermind - who based the production on Winston Graham's novels - said: "I love a musical. You would obviously need great big show-stopping numbers in order to tell the story.

"It happened to 'Les Miserables', so you never know."

However, Debbie thinks converting show into a suitable production for the theatre would be difficult because she believes the requirements for a musical are "very very different".

She added: "The requirements and demands of a musical are very, very different."

The period drama's third season has recently come to a close, and while the dark-haired hunk has been given the green-light for series four he doesn't think a fifth instalment will work because he thinks they will "run out of things" to do.

Speaking previously, he said: "I think we run out of things to do after series five, I think that would be our last one. Four was green-lit, five hasn't been yet, and it wouldn't be fair to me to green light it, but it's probably looking like it may happen."
