Still going strong and waiting out for Series 3.

Ilovelblue Sat 23-Sep-17 18:03:04

Ready now for Our Girl and Strictly Come Dancing chat.

Seems strange to be commenting on Strictly at the start of a new thread!

Rhubarb01 Sat 23-Sep-17 20:40:11

Yes, so I will say - love that pic of CJ ilove. We need to see more of him in his best bib and tucker!

Rhubarb01 Sat 23-Sep-17 20:41:32

I will also say Series 2 Episode 3 watchalong tomorrow night at 9pm for anyone who would like to join in!

Just been having a quick look at the OG trailer - not impressed with it. If I wasn't a fan already, it wouldn't especially encourage me to want to watch. I'm fine about MK being the lead but all that makeup seems so out of keeping with army life and the pink lipstick is especially incongruous.

What does anyone else think?

Ilovelblue Sat 23-Sep-17 20:42:52

Oh, it's just shown on the BBC after Strictly!

Rhubarb01 Sat 23-Sep-17 20:43:05


The voiceover sounds worryingly like Dr Boring!

Rhubarb01 Sat 23-Sep-17 20:46:23

It's not very revealing is it. They are obviously relying on all the viewers who watched the last series. Don't worry, I'm sure MK will look suitably sweaty and roughed up when she needs to be.

Ilovelblue Sat 23-Sep-17 21:08:33

I was worried it was Dr Boring too. Surely not?

Rhubarb01 Sat 23-Sep-17 21:21:22

He surely can't be on the scene if Georgie is supposed to be getting close to a Nepalese engineer and in any case Elvis is still around isn't he? On top of which just as Georgie didn't want to give Elvis the time of day after he jilted her surely we wouldn't expect Dr Boring to do otherwise. Mind you, I still blame a lot of that on her annoying parents and sister. They all pushed her to marry him. The problem was the lack of timescale again. I had no idea how much time had passed between her returning and the wedding that never was and couldn't judge if it was reasonable to expect her to get married or not.

Ilovelblue Sat 23-Sep-17 21:36:20

It may even be as simple as Dr Boring (Royce Pierreson?) just happened to be available and was asked to do the voiceover?

kazzaD66 Sat 23-Sep-17 21:53:03

Didn't see the trailer after Strictly as I watched it back on record and stopped and deleted it as soon as T&C said keeeeep dancing . Saw the BBC clip thing about heads and hearts, or whatever, and barely recognised MK. What has she done to her lips and don't even get me started on her eyebrows!! Why?!confused

Ilovelblue Sat 23-Sep-17 21:55:30

kazza for me it was the pale pink lipstick. Just so appropriate in a war zone.... not!

kazzaD66 Sat 23-Sep-17 22:00:21

Perhaps it's her take on camouflage ilove grin

Ilovelblue Sat 23-Sep-17 22:01:57

It reminds me of a cartoon of a ghost where all you see are the eyes moving. Weird.

Rhubarb01 Sat 23-Sep-17 22:55:48

I never noticed any of that until you mentioned it but now I've watched it back a couple of times and I see what you mean. It's a little bit odd but I trust that it's just a trailer and all will be as normal when it starts proper.

TRish47 Sun 24-Sep-17 08:10:13

Wow a new thread 😋 I so agree with you Ilove, pink lipstick in a war zone! What next?
Now a topless Elvis 🕺 would be s good talking point.

Buttercunt Sun 24-Sep-17 08:14:06

The cosmetic surgery / lip enhancement / whatever she's had done is really distracting. She weirdly looks like her husband's (in real life) ex girlfriend.

Rhubarb01 Sun 24-Sep-17 09:37:59

Morning. Totally different subject but I was looking at that lovely pic you posted ilove and found myself weirdly obsessed by the pendulous swing of CJ's gongs! (where is woof when you need her?)

Flowerfan Sun 24-Sep-17 09:42:51

Hi ilove GOT YOU !!!!!

TRish47 Sun 24-Sep-17 09:58:28

I think you are right there Rhu. It does sound like Dr Boring! I wonder if he is in the series?

Flowerfan Sun 24-Sep-17 10:33:49

Hi again,
Well it took me a while to get on the thread but did it in the end.
I agree about the lips why do these already pretty girls have to go and spoil themselves. Certainly would not encourage me to watch the programme with that trailer.
However as long as there is lots of CJ in it I can ignore the lips and makeup!!
Hope to join you on watchalong tonight.

kazzaD66 Sun 24-Sep-17 10:40:52

rhu yes, there's so much to look at in that photo, apart from the obvious smile As you note, the pendulous gongs, a bit of a bulge and CJ gripping his impressive sword grinblush I miss woof wink

Rhubarb01 Sun 24-Sep-17 10:59:37

Oh now we are back on familiar territory Kazza. How could I forget the bulge and big sword not to mention my memories of those fireside wrestling contests - in my imagination at least. The image of those taut rippling muscles locked in noble combat and cheered by hoards of middle-aged, hormonal women is etched on my brain. Happy Days!
