Character profile #2 The Honourable Nancy Polperro

Nancy is the gorgeous and glamorous daughter of Squire Polperro. Nancy and Jim are in the throes of a romantic relationship, but are trying to keep it quiet from Squire Polperro as he would have Jim flogged if he was caught.


Character profile #3 Mrs Ladd

Mrs Ladd is Jim’s mother. She is a hoot and will squeeze a double entendre into any available space (oo-err missus!). This is a big part (oo-err again. R u getting the picture?) and will be sure to steal the show!

Character profile #5&5a Newquay and Bodmin

This double act are in the employ of Squire Polperro. They get a bit fed up with the menial tasks they are always having to perform, and the fact that nobody knows which one is which.

Definitely one of the lads, but female. She is thoroughly villainous possibly in a slightly smouldering way.
