We have been discussing the series Our Girl since the first one aired in 2014 and are now on number 56! Occasionally between discussions of Our Girl, we watch the 1990s series of Soldier Soldier.

Reviewing Series 2 episode 4

CJ is on hand should she need any help!

Banging them out soon!

Is Abu here in Manchester - CJ urges her to "Stay Calm and Focussed!" difficult when CJ is around.

Ilovelblue Tue 16-Jun-20 21:28:24

Georgie discovers Abu is in the country on a false passport and has slipped through the net.

I'd be quite happy having CJ by my side to keep me calm I think.

Stay calm, stay focussed....

Rhubarb01 Tue 16-Jun-20 21:29:09

That would be those seven children again then eejit that is a worrying statement for a paediatrician to use, hope it's not a technical term!

Abu is in a DIY shop buying things for an attack.

Georgie and her entourage are in the shopping centre and the counter terrorist guys go off to check out the CCTV footage. Meanwhile, CJ wants Georgie to take her time and is wondering if Syria is a good idea in her present state of mind.

CJ is concerned that Dr Dull won't be letting Georgie anywhere near Syria or that she should go there at all.

Ilovelblue Tue 16-Jun-20 21:32:06

Watching the CCTV footage, it's confirmed that Abu has been in the shopping centre.

You'd feel you were in the middle of a terrible nightmare, wouldn't you?

Is Abu checking out the shopping centre, following Georgie or doing both? Slightly confusing.

Rhubarb01 Tue 16-Jun-20 21:33:31

Another nightmare in the shopping centre. Gosh this is scary stuff.

eejittwo Tue 16-Jun-20 21:33:59

I think a meeting of COBRA is about to be called.

Ilovelblue Tue 16-Jun-20 21:34:09

Once home again, Georgie realises she's missed the call with the London hospital but thankfully Jamie has turned down the offer.

Georgie in her wedding dress again, this time she really is having a nightmare. Oh look Elvis is on the phone. He's the answer to anyone's prayers.

For the first time, Georgie reveals he was "part of the rescue".

And Elvis calls again in the middle of the night. Why is he called Elvis - gosh I would really like to know.

Rhubarb01 Tue 16-Jun-20 21:34:42

Pillow talk - nice!

Ilovelblue Tue 16-Jun-20 21:35:14

Breakfast at the Polish cafe with Elvis. Hmm, not a greasy fry up sort of person me but I would have a coffee with him.

Elvis explains the situation.

He tells her rather a lot in a public café - I do hope know one else is earwigging!

Ilovelblue Tue 16-Jun-20 21:36:39

Jamie walks into the cafe.

How does he know where to find them? Has Georgie told him or has he a tracker on her phone?

No Elvis, as a man who goes round the world killing people, you should know Kiev is in the Ukraine, not in Poland.

Love this bit when Jamie comes in and tries to warn off Elvis. Love the disparaging look and cocky response. He can't believe that Jamie is the competition.

eejittwo Tue 16-Jun-20 21:37:00

Notice the totally different way she talks to Elvis compared with Jamie.

eejittwo Tue 16-Jun-20 21:37:19

I love this scene.

Rhubarb01 Tue 16-Jun-20 21:37:56

I do feel a little bit sorry for Dr Dull. He has been taken for a bit of a ride, poor bloke.

Ilovelblue Tue 16-Jun-20 21:37:59

Jamie is now suspicious of Elvis and confronts Georgie.

How dim is he? You can't just put the wedding back by a few days.
