“Next on ABC. A young medic fights to save a life to prove her worth when first stationed in Afghanistan.”
That’s what the voice over at the end of The Checkout said of UK drama Our Girl which premiered at 8:30pm last night.
Having watched the preview for Our Girl I was a tad confused.
Much of the telemovie was about young Molly (Lacey Turner) signing up for the armed forces. As a bit of a rebel, the story focussed heavily on whether she would actually rise to the challenge of training or drop-out altogether.
So it was a bit of a spoiler for ABC to promote the show as her being active on the ground in Afghanistan.
Even more surprising given she doesn’t actually head to Afghanistan until 1:24 hrs into the 1:28 hr telemovie.
An inaccurate voice-over at the end of a show which is slapping false advertising is not really a good look.
