Changed the name of this thread as we were very upset with the ending of series 3 out in Bangladesh! Waiting out for news of series 4. In the meantime, we are reviewing the seven series of Soldier Soldier.

Rhubarb01 Wed 16-Oct-19 20:12:56

Evening, ready for the watchalong tonight at 9pm. Episode 7 of series 4, "Further Education".

Ilovelblue Wed 16-Oct-19 20:55:48

I'm here, early for once.

Rhubarb01 Wed 16-Oct-19 21:00:10

Slightly worried as the picture for this episode shows "Tone" again - hope there's no boxing!

Pressing play, here goes.

Rhubarb01 Wed 16-Oct-19 21:01:09

ooh the band are playing - it looks like Windsor Castle.

Ilovelblue Wed 16-Oct-19 21:01:14

Oh yes, here we are back in good old blighty, changing the guard at Windsor.

Rhubarb01 Wed 16-Oct-19 21:02:17

Tony doesn't seem impressed by the thought that they will be doing ceremonial duties - meanwhile Paddy is carrying out more Mess hijinks.

eejittwo Wed 16-Oct-19 21:02:20

Dratted internet...

Ilovelblue Wed 16-Oct-19 21:02:27

Tony looks less than enamoured at their new duties.

Meanwhile, back in the officers' mess, Paddy is trussed up like a Christmas turkey doing whatever jolly japes these guys do.

Ilovelblue Wed 16-Oct-19 21:03:24

Ah yes, I forgot about this guy - he's the new recruit if my memory serves me right.

Rhubarb01 Wed 16-Oct-19 21:03:28

Colonel looks daft in his PJ's with that hat and sword.

Ilovelblue Wed 16-Oct-19 21:04:43

Oh no, the colonel is trying to sweet talk his wife into persuading some of the wives to dress up as land girls.

Not sure I could take him seriously dressed up in his ceremonial cap and a dressing gown!

Rhubarb01 Wed 16-Oct-19 21:04:48

Kinky stuff here - get the ladies to dress up in uniform - well land girl uniforms.

Joy is obviously not enjoying unpacking and seems a bit miffed with Tony. Is he taking his demotion badly?

Ilovelblue Wed 16-Oct-19 21:05:15

Tony is not handling his demotion very well and has hit the bottle.

Rhubarb01 Wed 16-Oct-19 21:05:48

£1.80 a pint of lager...cor those were the days!

Rhubarb01 Wed 16-Oct-19 21:06:31

Oh, I really hate Tony. What a prannet!

Rhubarb01 Wed 16-Oct-19 21:07:18

Oh look who's here - Fusillier Farrell - Joe isn't it?

eejittwo Wed 16-Oct-19 21:08:19

O mega boo! I endure the adverts and then the screen goes black instead of starting the titles - so far, more than once.

Ilovelblue Wed 16-Oct-19 21:08:28

Rhu in NY, we drank beer each evening (wine was extortionate). For a small bottle (third of a pint??), we were paying $9 - about £7.50!

Rhubarb01 Wed 16-Oct-19 21:08:47

It must be really hard work learning all that difficult marching and ceremonial stuff.

Ilovelblue Wed 16-Oct-19 21:08:59

Hard luck eejit, very frustrating.

Ilovelblue Wed 16-Oct-19 21:10:23

I love this, the way they are rehearsing in the back garden!

Presumably the colonel has rented a nice big house?

Rhubarb01 Wed 16-Oct-19 21:10:35

That is shocking ilove - not looking forward to Brexit and closer ties to the USA if that's the result!
