Popular BBC sketch show that introduces a whole host of memorable characters such as Tim-Nice-But-Dim, Wayne and Waynetta Slob, The Old Gits and teenagers Kevin and Perry. The show spawned a slew of spin-off series and films.
"Soldier, Soldier" is the story of Company A of the United Kingdom's
regiment, the "King's Fusiliers". The story revolves around a small
group of men and their wives in the regiment. We have Sgt. Wilton who
is married to Joy. Joy has adjusted to Army life and taken on the job
of creating activities for the wives and children of the regiment, so
they won't feel isolated from their husbands and fathers. Then there is
Corporal Garvey, who is lonely for a wife. He develops a relationship
with Corporal Nancy Thorpe, who is a member of the military police. The
relationship was doomed from the start. Both want to advance in the
military, but Garvey wants what Wilton has, a stable family with a wife
and children. Nancy would be happy to give these things to Garvey, but
not in the middle of her sargents training. The relationship of
Fusilier Dave Tucker and his wife Donna is very stormy. Both were born
and raised in Newcastle. Both had troubled childhoods. Tucker joined
the army to get away from the poverty. In the end, the Army became his
only family. Donna, his wife, was a "party girl". When she saw Tucker
flash his new Army pay, she set her eyes for him. He fell in love, she
didn't. From that point, she hated Army life. Through out his troubled
Army life, Tucker fought to stay in, but Donna did everything she could
to try to get him out. After finding Donna with another man, Tucker
went "Absent Without Leave" and faced a court martial. Donna was
ecstatic, but when he was sentenced to 6 months detention instead of
being kicked out, she left him. After hitch-hiking several rides back
to Newcastle, Donna realized she had no where to go. She returned to
the regiment and with the help of Joy Wilton learned to adapt, though
it was still a rough road. The entire series is filled with wonderful
and diverse characters; some the viewer learn to love, ie: Col. Dan
Fortune and Major Tom Cadmean. Others; like Capt. Davison; the viewer
will learn to hate.
This is wonderful series and I recommend it to everyone who wants
strong acting and great stories.
