Amazing funny and spot on!
27 March 2014 | by Frankie-barrettxxSee all my reviews

I absolutely love this. My partner is a British soldier and this is spot on with squaddie banter and completely funny and very enjoyable I love it and completely addicted. Can't wait for series three! All brilliant actors and actresses completely recommend! Great laugh with the seriousness behind. People forget soldiers are people too And this really reminds you with also having a laugh! And tower lock is definitely my favourite all grown up since Harry potter ! They have also done lots of research as they are very spot on with set. I am so glad they are doing a series three! But this is great watch for those who know army life or not as banter and jokes are great! X
