Michelle Keegan is back on the front line as the Army medic whose love life is a battle zone all of its own
Our Girl Nepal Tour Tuesday BBC 1 ,9pm
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.
