Michelle Keegan replaces Lacey Turner for the second series of a young woman experiencing the war zone front.
When young soap stars leave the show that sensationally launched their career, they normally have a couple career changes - One: a short-lived spot in reality TV or 2: they somehow slide into the world of relighting a pop career (Not always that successful).
It was very surprising how Lacey Turner took a step back and returned to EastEnders while another soap legend, Michelle Keegan steals the spot of playing the lead role of an army medic.
Once I heard that Michelle Keegan was to take over from Lacey Turner, I didn't like the idea so much, in fact, I pretty much hated the idea as I see her too much as playing Tina McIntyre in Coronation Street.
But my instincts proved me wrong as we saw Michelle make her first ever major drama debut in Our Girl last night...
Lance Corporal Georgie Lane, an experienced army medic, joins Captain James and 2 Section on a humanitarian tour to Kenya. She has promised her fiance, Doctor Jamie Cole, that she will return home soon to marry him.
2 Section are posted to a refugee camp near the border of Somalia, and as soon as they pull into the camp, Georgie jumps straight to work when an IED explodes, harming many refugees.
When aid worker Kicki is kidnapped, Georgie's determination to find her has left herself in major danger as she's taken hostage whilst snatched at gunpoint when the ambulance she was travelling in was hijacked.
Viewers saw her try to hide her tags in a bid to conceal her identity, but will it be enough to save her life as things take a dramatic turn for the worse...
Michelle Keegan is a remarkably talented actress that she almost played the lead role too well all thanks to her natural beauty and outstanding presence.
It's a real eye opener as what you see is what you get. It's a natural insight of what the world is really like if you're looking to peruse a career in the war.
Next week's episode will see Lane forced to film a video in which she explains that she will be executed should Al-Shabaab fighters not be released. One of the hostage takers then threatens to behead Lane if their demands are not met.
Captain James (Ben Aldridge) will also be seen explaining to troops that they will be joined by Special Forces in a bid to get Lane back. But an already tense situation looks set to get even more dramatic thanks to some unforeseen developments in the investigation of Georgie's whereabouts.
