[an RAF doctor is giving Robert yet more tests]
Squadron Leader Wentworth: Your father gave me a lesson in military etiquette. I shall give you one. I am called "Sir".
Robert Lawrence: What are you? Squadron Leader? In the Household Division we don't call your rank "Sir".
Squadron Leader Wentworth: Well you can start now, Lawrence.
Robert Lawrence: You're in the Royal Air Force. Are you a flyer?
Squadron Leader Wentworth: No I'm not. I'm a doctor.
Robert Lawrence: [snarls] Well listen, Doctor. Just test this fist. It's just about to give you your first fucking flying lesson!

Outstanding
5 June 2001 | by (England) – See all my reviews

An outstanding study of one man's personal commitment and sacrifice to winning a meaningless war on a rain sodden rock 8000 miles away from home.

Charles Woods storytelling is first class and gives Colin Firth an opportunity to totally convince us that he really is an officer in the Scots Guards.

The production, given the BBC's lack of money is superb. Remember too, that this was produce despite political opposition from the very government which ordered the war in the first place and was then too embarrassed to recognise and honor the cripples who returned.
