Molly Dawes first hit our screens in Spring 2013 in Our Girl, the single film.
Feisty and unstoppable, we watched as she transformed her life from a dead end job in a nail bar in the East End of London to training up as a serving soldier in the British Army Medical Corps.
As the series begins, Molly’s dreams come true when she is given a place on one of the last Herrick missions to Afghanistan. This will be the most unforgettable six months of her life – and it will either make or break her.
Fearless and outspoken, Molly is a true original and struggles at first with the discipline of army regulations.
This mission will be a huge rites of passage story for her, as she faces unimaginable challenges in a far flung land.
Molly’s experiences in Afghanistan will see her grow as an individual and feel empowered as a woman for the first time in her life.
