5.0 out of 5 stars The albeit tenuous 'Eastenders' connection, was a turn off for me., 12 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Our Girl - Lacey Turner - As Seen on BBC1 [DVD] (DVD)
It very nearly prevented me from watching Our Girl on TV; however the military connection just tipped the scales in its favour. The main character was not exactly endearing - but she certainly grew on me. There is a lot that I could say for or against watching this film: initially I found it to be uncomfortable viewing; to the point where I wanted to switch channels, simply because I could not stand who the character was. I stuck with it though, & I am so glad that I did. Lacey Turner has done a fine piece of acting here.
There are certain film offerings which leave an indelible mark upon us, when we first invite them onto our TV screens at home; I will only name three (though there are a comparatively few other titles on that list): 'Cathy Come Home' from 1966; 'A Foreign Field' from 1993: & 'Our Girl' from 2013. Put quite simply, if you missed this gem when it was originally screened, don't waste another second, & order the DVD now!
