We have been following Our Girl since 2014 and although there are to be no further series, we revisit time and time again to discuss. As an alternative, we are also watching the 1990s series of Soldier Soldier.

Poor Throbber has really been fed a line about that lovely dog. He might come across as tough and devil me care, but he has a soft spot for dogs!

OK found it.

Ooooh Dr Antonio tries his luck with Georgie wanting a tour of Manchester!

Grace would indeed be delighted if she brought him home. One up on Dr Dull and possibly more stable than Elvis (RIP).

Monk realises Throbber has kidnapped the dog!

Yes and once again Cheese is trying to upset things by talking about pork pies.

The Last Post ......

Yep, Grace loves a medic almost as much as CJ does....grin

First it was stolen candy and now it's a dog in the barracks. Throbber is pretty thick really.

eejittwo Tue 01-Sep-20 21:35:10

The dog is lovely ...

Rhubarb01 Tue 01-Sep-20 21:35:29

Oh no...they have hidden Flash in a shed. Yes, Cheese has a point about the dog being smarter than Throbber.

Prof does have some great lines. He has a very dry sense of humour.

Bless Georgie for giving Mimi some encouragement.

Rhubarb01 Tue 01-Sep-20 21:37:15

Prof must be embarrassed by his mates sometimes.

Rhubarb01 Tue 01-Sep-20 21:38:47

Georgie can't keep out of it. She has to listen in to the operation.

Ilovelblue Tue 01-Sep-20 21:38:48

I think I prefer the character Prof plays to Brains really.

Flashbacks - and an audio flashback to CJ too...ah!

Ilovelblue Tue 01-Sep-20 21:39:48

Georgie isn't doing much to help her own mental state, listening in like that. It's bound to make her think of Elvis.

Cheese hits one of the old Afghan men. He really is a loose cannon.

Yes ilove - Brains was a sweet lad, but Prof is an intellectual equal for Georgie.

Oh dear, she remembers the moments when Elvis was blown off the building.

Ilovelblue Tue 01-Sep-20 21:40:39

I get so fed up of that duty of care phrase bandied around.

Cheese has overreacted and flattened an old man in the street.

eejittwo Tue 01-Sep-20 21:42:07

For the first time, I’ve wondered if the blast killed Elvis before he landed ...

Magi84 Tue 01-Sep-20 21:42:07

My wifi went a bit Pete tong and I've come only fir the first thing I see is Elvis falling off that building. Yuk

Rhubarb01 Tue 01-Sep-20 21:42:58

"Duty of Care" and a bit lippy telling the Colour Sergeant what to do. Yep, she is following in Georgie's footsteps.

I think I prefer the way they actually do follow orders in Soldier, Soldier.

Magi84 Tue 01-Sep-20 21:43:13

I think he may have eejit and in a way I hope he did really.

Ilovelblue Tue 01-Sep-20 21:45:09

Maybe Cheese's previous platoon were pleased to get rid of him.
