Betty is the oldest of the women and is the ‘first woman’ so in charge of the others. She is firm but good humoured and very competent. She chaffs the others and can take some gentle chaffing herself. She is confident in her skills and knowledge but is kindly to the other bondagers. She would have a pocket watch for time keeping – she may have carried a whistle to enable her to call all the bondagers together for breaks etc.
We can imagine that Betty has been away from home like Annie (see below) but back again, through change in circumstances, to support her parents. This would mean she had a great fellow feeling with Annie and they were friends.
Betty likes to tell stories of her earlier life but likes to be pressed about it and always demurs.
Susan Stewart played Betty.
"I liked my character, she was well thought out and this made it easier to portray her in the scenes I was in...
...I enjoyed working with people that I hadn't worked wiith before -amazing fun!"
