Lacey TurnerBBC One has commissioned a full series of army-based drama Our Girl starring Lacey Turner.

Our Girl is the story of the unstoppable Molly Dawes (Turner), born and raised in East London with few prospects, who went from nobody to a soldier in the Royal Army Medical Corps.

The new series comprising of five episodes follows Molly during her first deployment as a serving army medic in Afghanistan where she faces unforgettable experiences that will shape her life forever.

Our Girl is a rite-of-passage story about a young soldier beautifully captured by Lacey Turner.

 

In the same year when our British troops withdraw from Afghanistan, the series will follow the extreme life-changing experiences she is forced to face both on tour and when she returns back home.

Earlier this year a 90 minute standalone episode attracted a consolidated audience of 6.3m viewers.

Our Girl will return to BBC One in 2014.
