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. We are now on series 7.

Jeremy has just been given a telling off by the new Colonel.

Stacey looks less elf-like with her new hairdo.

Acting Company Commander for Jeremy - the Colonel disagrees with Jeremy's assessment. Yep, he's a nasty piece of work - not out to make any friends.

Remember Colonel Swagger from series 2 - ahhhh!

I think Tony and Julie have some sort of past - a sordid one probably.

So Angela’s pregnant and Chris has been killed. That settles things withAoife.

So Tony and Jacko's girlfriend have history - can't see this working out well.

Oh, where are you eejit? Chris was alive and kicking at the start of this episode?

eejit which episode are you watching?

Rhubarb01 Tue 23-Feb-21 21:19:57

I wondered when Jeremy had been rifling through a filing cabinet?

Dog racing, is nearly as boring as war games.

eejittwo Tue 23-Feb-21 21:22:09

I thought I was in the right episode but I suspect iI was on the last. Sorry.

Rhubarb01 Tue 23-Feb-21 21:23:03

Now there is needle between Jacko and Tony.

Ilovelblue Tue 23-Feb-21 21:23:48

I think the Colonel is old school and presumably does not like women in the army.

Do you want us to stop for you eejit?

Jessica is about to be giving a dressing down by the Colonel. He doesn't like graduates or probably women in the army either. He doesn't want her to question what they are doing.

Rhubarb01 Tue 23-Feb-21 21:25:38

Now Jacko knows about Julie and Tony.

eejittwo Tue 23-Feb-21 21:26:01

Did wonder about the gaps in the story line.

Magi84 Tue 23-Feb-21 21:26:17

This Colonel is as uptight as they come. Got all sorts of hang ups re women and discipline

Love both series!

eejittwo Tue 23-Feb-21 21:27:05

The way UKTV cuts things out I’m sue I’ll catch up.

Ilovelblue Tue 23-Feb-21 21:27:38

Oh another exercise, forgive me if I nod off....

More running about in forests and moors - yawn!

I don't think that uniform does poor Jessica any favours.
