Our Girl

Series 1 - Episode 3



Smurf and Molly are going home laden with orders from their comrades to bring back Marmite, eye drops and boxer shorts. Although Captain James’s request is a bit more personal – he asks Molly to come back to him safely. That both he and Smurf fancy the camouflage pants off Molly is obvious, but it’s also clear which one she prefers.

The pace slows during the scenes in Britain and even more so when Lacey Turner does that drippy staring-into-the-distance-contemplating-her-love-life thing. Fortunately, there’s a bit of action in the last few minutes, although this, unbelievably, is when Molly chooses to speak from the heart.


Molly and Smurf return to the UK for rest leave, but with their comrades facing a big threat in Afghanistan, they find it hard to switch off and settle into life back home. As Molly finds Smurf is the only one who understands how she feels, their friendship eventually deepens into something more serious - but then he makes a declaration that could ruin everything. Before long, they are back in the field, where Molly comes under threat from an old enemy. Military drama, starring Lacey Turner and Iwan Rheon.
