Our Girl 2.1
8 September 2016 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

Series two has Michelle Keegan taking over as Lance Corporal Georgie Lane, an army medic jilted at the altar and sent to Kenya on a humanitarian mission near the Somalian border.

As soon as she gets there a bomb causes havoc and death. Pretty soon Lane is dealing with charred bodies and infected wounds in kids that has spawned maggots.

Given Keegan cuts a glamorous dash with fake tan and false eyelashes there is plenty of sexist banter from the lads.

The episode ends with a dark turn as her vehicle is ambushed and Lane gets abducted by a guerrilla group.

It was all fast moving, plenty of ASAP being shouted out, leaving Lane with hardly much time to talk to her new boyfriend via Skype.

Maggots in a boy's mouth aside it lacked the grittiness of the Lacey Turner series, a girl from the council estate making a go of it to better her life. It is interesting to see where the next episode takes Lane.
