    Series 1: Annie Barratt played by Christine Bottomley

    Annie is the oldest in her family, and has always been the responsible one. She and her younger sister Bea are already living and working at Pasture Farm when Nancy and Joyce arrive. Annie is the peacemaker of the group, holding the girls together as they face the challenges of life in the Women's Land Army.

  • Series 1: Nancy Morrell played by Summer Strallen

    Series 1: Nancy Morrell played by Summer Strallen

    Forceful, opinionated, and whiney, Nancy had to enlist when female conscription started, but she worked in a recruitment office in Cambridge which suited her as well as it could. Then, to her horror, there was a shortfall in women going to work on the land, so she was transferred to the WLA.

    Nancy hates it at first, but realises that she can't escape the war and will do her bit. She's not work shy, just perhaps the last to volunteer for a particular task.

  • Series 1: Bea Holloway played by Jo Woodcock

    Series 1: Bea Holloway played by Jo Woodcock

    Bea is a 17-year-old innocent who lies about her age to join the WLA, discovering a world of adventure as a result.

    Inquisitive and fun-loving, Bea is headstrong with a desire to change the world. Sometimes irritating due to her constant energy, Bea will happily launch campaigns for justice, albeit ill-considered ones.

    Bea fluctuates between being a child and a woman and struggles to navigate a course between the two states. Her older sister Annie has always looked after her and it's no different now they're both land girls.

  • Series 1: Joyce Fisher played by Becci Gemmell

    Series 1: Joyce Fisher played by Becci Gemmell

    Straightforward and patriotic land girl Joyce, tries her best to serve her country and do her bit to help win the war.

    Her parents were killed in a German bombing raid, and her house and possessions were destroyed. In addition, she is worried about her husband John, who has been posted abroad.

    On the surface, Joyce is sunny and optimistic, but – like the war rhetoric she spouts – it's all a way of coping with the inner pain. She's genuinely the most caring of the girls as she knows the true meaning of loss.
