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.
During her tour, she falls for mysterious Captain Charles James. The two wed, later revealed in season two, but following season four, it has been revealed that the two have split.
