MASTERPIECE Home Fires: New Characters, New Stories, New Drama

Set in a rural English village on the verge of the second World War, a diverse group of women with personal struggles, conflicting views and a shared mission forge a community that will inspire their finest hour. Masterpiece’s Home Fires is a moving wartime drama with a shining cast, including Samantha Bond (Downton Abbey), Francesca Annis (Reckless), Claire Rushbrook (Whitechapel) and Ed Stoppard (Upstairs Downstairs).
Based on the novel Jambusters by Julie Summers, this six-part series follows the bitter rivalry between forward-thinking Frances Barden (Samantha Bond) and snobbish Joyce Cameron (Francesca Annis) as they clash over the fate of The Women’s Institute. 
Home Fires on Masterpiece premieres Sunday, October 4, at 8:00 p.m.
