Set in rural England during the Second World War, this highly popular, award-winning drama returns for a third 5-part series and continues to follow the lives and loves of the Land Girls who are working the fields in the Women's Land Army. New Land Girl Iris (Lou Broadbent) joins Joyce (Becci Gemmell) and Connie (Seline Hizli) on the farm, while Lady Ellen (Sophie Ward) turns Hoxley Manor into a hospital after the local military hospital is bombed.



Commissioned by the BBC to commemorate the 70th Anniversary of the start of World War II, Land Girls is a tribute to all the women who answered their country's call for service to do their bit on the home front, while their men were overseas, fighting the enemy.

Land Girls staff changes, few, but the action picks up as do the affairs. The comic element remains led by Farmer Finch (Mark Benton). He's not received an award yet, like returnees Becci Gemmell (Joyce) and Sophie Ward (Lady Ellen). There is hardly a character in series 3 who is not involved in a romantic ripple at some point, but it's wartime and something things end harshly. Over a dozen cast back picking up British wartime 40s where it left off, doing their bit for the war out of...well, almost out of harms way.

An excellent mix plots in the storyline keeps the viewer interest. 5 episodes (originally shown during a single week) connect in a continuous war adventure that would be considered an epic if on a longer and wider land scale. It's a small community of farms but the outside horrors of war begin to reach the furors around Hoxley Manor. Old complaints of changes to period clothing colors seem to fade as the depth of the characters swell like cabbage fields.

NO SUBTITLES again. BBC cares little about hearing & dialect impaired but continues doing well with this war drama series, released 2 months after airing on DVD.
1 HOME TO ROOST---Hoxley gets converted to a hospital after the local is bombed. Dr. Channing (Dominic Mafham) at the head, oops a former Lady Ellen lover. Frank (Paul Ritter-`Vera') to the Story-Tucker feud which newest land girl Iris (Lou Broadbent) gets caught up in. Finch wrecks Mrs. Gulliver's (Carolyn Pickles) victory garden and is blackmailed to replant. Table turns when treasure found. Connie's (Seline Hizli) about to mate the Vicar till bad-past Danny (Joe Armstrong) appears. Joyce's John (Nicholas Shaw) hospitalized at Hoxley with amnesia. Thus a stage of plots is set for the remaining series.

Though it's not a very old series, we only recently discovered Land Girls, checked it out of the local library, and viewed the episodes one right after the other.

We've been fans of British television for quite some time (As Time Goes By, Foyle's War, etc.), and find the shows so well acted, and in the case of period drama, very well researched. We also appreciate that the shows aren't generally 'dumbed' down for the American audience.

From what I've read on other sites, quite a few people griped and complained about historical inaccuracies, which I suppose the writers/producers/set designers should have paid more attention to (like on Foyle's War), but all in all, this is still a good series, paying tribute to a part of the war effort that truly was important, and mostly overlooked.

That said, we didn't feel that series 3 was quite as good as the first two. Some major characters seemed to fade into the background (such as Mr. Finch), whereas in the first two series they were interesting and highly entertaining.

Other characters seemed to have been brought in simply to irritate - Mrs. Gulliver comes to mind. Someone who considers herself the conscience of the town, but is really nothing more than a busy body who spreads gossip and then calls herself a 'Christian' woman.

By the way that series 3 ended, they either planned it that way, or knew they were headed for cancellation. All of the loose ends were tied up, though there was obviously more storyline left for Dr. Channing, who we learn some interesting secrets about. It seems those will need to be left to our imagination. Maybe that was the point.

I do recommend the show. It's well done, well acted, and entertaining.

I enjoyed the complete Land Girls series, British women's organized home front participation in World War II. The women are from all walks of life, doing their bit for the war effort, but some use the opportunity to runaway from their past homelife. What happens to them and how they cope is what this series is about.

What started in Series 1 with engaging characters in an interesting time and setting seems to have totally fallen apart by Series 3. Primarily, the story continuity is terrible. Important characters and their storyline seems to vanish in an instant with little to no effort creating confusion as a viewer. Sometimes I viewed sections over again and turned the closed captioning on to see if I missed something due to my own stupidity or inability to comprehend the clarity of the audio.
The last episode in Series 3 was the coup d'gras -- every character was silly and immature. So much so that the only drama was that it was easy to predict every shallow conflict and shallower reunion. I found myself retitling the program 'Land Morons'.
I'm sorry this program disintigrated. The WLA and wartime England is an endlessly fascinating drama on many levels and Series 3 did not measure up at all.

The deceptively complex Gordian knot of English village life is subtly unwoven for us by three diverse, independently spirited yet wondrously feminine characters, each with separate conflicts that champion English integrity, steadfastness and humor. The farm is part of Hoxley Manor, ramrodded by Lady Ellen,cool, statuesque, noble, no feelings worn on her exquisite sleeves, however, who centers the timeless English value of home, as does Connie, land girl on the farm, who with her large house husband, has recently sold her favours to the lascivious farmer to pay for her son's eye operation. Amply proportioned Joyce, recently arrived from London's east end, razor sharp wit, matched with a cat o nine tail's tongue, who calls it as she sees it, but carried a dark secret of her own. Her checkered past is contrasted nicely when the young, handsome Vicar proposes, certifying that Joyce's is both beautiful, inside as well as out. New with this Series is the ginger-haired land girl, Iris, who's male foil is the older misunderstood mystery man with a secret past. Through the demands of farm life, the indirect pressures of the war only 20-miles distant and with subtle yet telling sub-plots, these three characters are complex, the plots strongly conflicted, as each young woman finds her particular mettle tested in a karmically-suitable fashion. If you buy it, observe closely for details of movement, eye shifts, body language. The English sense for understatement yet with powerful emotional forces driving the simple farm life of three strong yet feminine Land Girls. I further recommend Series 2 which covers the arrival of Joyce (Becci Gemmell) which adds spice, humor and pace.
