A new season and a new lead for Our Girl as Lacey Turner departs and in comes Michelle Keegan as medic Georgie Lane who joins 2 Section, headed up Captain James, on a humanitarian tour of duty in Kenya.
This is a tough gig, especially when 2 section are posted to a refugee camp sitting on the border of Somalia. The team barely have time to settle in before an IED explodes and leaves many injured to deal with. Georgie shows her mettle when aid worker Kicki is kidnapped and she determines to find her.
It’s never easy to bring a new lead into an established series but Michelle Keegan is a strong enough presence to establish the character of Georgie Lane very quickly.
