TV Soldier Soldier (ITV 1991-1997, Robson Green, Jerome Flynn) Published 2 years ago on September 29, 2017 Popular long-running hit drama Soldier Soldier was based around a group of soldiers and officers serving in the King’s Own Fusiliers regiment. Privates Dave Tucker (Robson Green) and Paddy Garvey (Jerome Flynn) are the two main characters, who invariably end up getting into scrapes – usually thanks to Tucker. In addition to the soldiers’ own personal relationships, the show does tackle some of the bigger domestic issues affecting the British Army, such as the merging of regiments as a result of downsizing. Memorable moments: Tucker’s stormy relationship with his wife Donna, who doesn’t enjoy being an army wife and constantly goads her husband to leave. Tucker then faces a court martial for going Absent Without Leave, after discovering Donna in bed with another man. Trivia: Green and Flynn launched a hugely successful (if short-lived) music career as Robson & Jerome, after non-other-than Simon Cowell spotted them singing The Righteous Brothers’ hit Unchained Melody on the show. In May 1995 the pair became the first British duo to debut at Number 1 with said song. Their follow-up single I Believe/Up on The Roof famously kept Oasis’ Wonderwall off the top spot in November 1995. Robson Green: “I have very fond memories of recording Soldier Soldier… I was on £55 a week, I auditioned for a show called Soldier Soldier and I then travel first class to Australia, to Hong Kong, to New Zealand, to Cyprus, South Africa, and they called me Mr Green on the plane. And of course, I worked with the wonderful Jerome Flynn” cast Robson Green as Fusilier Dave Tucker Jerome Flynn as Cpl Paddy Garvey Rosie Rowell as Donna Tucker Ben Nealon as Lt Jeremy Forsythe Gary Love as Sgt Tony Wilton Annabelle Apsion as Joy Wilton Danny Cunningham as Fus Andy Butcher Denise Welch as Marsha Stubbs Rob Spendlove as CSM Michael Stubbs David Groves as Fusilier Joe Farrell Holly Aird as Cpl Nancy Thorpe RMP Shaun Dingwall as Lance Cpl Steve Evans Lesley Vickerage as Lt Kate Butler Dorian Healy as Captain Kieran Voce crew details Creator: Lucy Gannon Theme Music: Jim Parker Titles: The Moving Picture Co.
