If you think you had a tough day at the o ce, spare a thought for Ge­orgie Lane (Michelle Kee­gan) as she goes out about her work. Within sec­onds of the open­ing of the new se­ries of Our Girl, the Army medic is un­der fire from the en­emy in Syria as she takes part in a dan­ger­ous res­cue mis­sion. But then the story of this thor­oughly mod­ern woman’s mil­i­tary ca­reer is reg­u­larly punc­tu­ated with life-or-death mo­ments. Yet she still finds time for a busy love life, which at the end of the last se­ries led to the shock­ing scene in which her sup­posed wed­ding day ended with her be­ing dumped at the al­tar by heart-throb spe­cial forces o cer Elvis Harte (Luke Pasqualino).

The bulk of se­ries three takes place in Nepal, where the Bri­tish mil­i­tary have been de­ployed on a hu­man­i­tar­ian mis­sion af­ter a dev­as­tat­ing earth­quake, and there are new dan­gers to face – but the change of scene also o ers some hunky new con­tenders for Ge­orgie’s ro­man­tic in­volve­ments.

Grit­tily re­al­is­tic and en­ter­tain­ing in equal mea­sure, this fast-paced show­case for Kee­gan’s star power is as mor­eishly watch­able as ever.
