Film: Our Girl
Our Girl is a one-off drama, subsequently commissioned as a five-part series, starring Lacey Turner as Molly Dawes, a teenager living in London whose life is in a rut. After a bad night out, she throws up outside the local Army Careers Office. When she walks past it the next day, she goes inside and decides to enlist.

Provides examples of:

  • Brits with Battleships
  • Call Back: During training, Cpl. Geddings tells Molly that he has yet to meet a gallant bullet that would spare a woman and hit a man instead. At the end, this is proven to be correct when Molly's parents watch the funeral cortege of a female soldier on television. It's worth mentioning that this is the only time that the "issue" of female soldiering is ever mentioned.
  • One London, 33 Boroughs: Molly lives in a council house in Newham.
  • Title Drop: When Molly's mum watches the funeral on TV, she turns to her husband and tries to reassure him that "our girl will be alright".
