Gutsy, passionate and unstoppable, Georgie is an army medic that loves the British Army. Having done a number of tours including Afghanistan, she relishes the adrenaline and adventure that working with the army brings. Her strength comes from the fact that she’s brave, and that courage stems from her empathy. However she is unable to switch off and she is emotionally tough - hardened and a little cynical.
Captain James played by Ben Aldridge
A charismatic leader and a brilliant officer, captain James is an army man to the core. He is totally committed to his work, a consummate professional; he has the respect of everyone he works with. A bit of a renaissance man, James is loved by all the men who fight alongside him. He always maintains clear boundaries between fun and work; that is until he met and fell in love with army medic, Molly Dawes while on tour in Afghanistan. She taught him more than he ever imagined. But after recovering from his injuries back home in Bath, James is back taking charge of a platoon in Kenya.
Elvis Harte played by Luke Pasqualino
As a Special Forces operative, the cheeky Londoner is fearless, impulsive, self-confident, determined and cool under pressure. Elvis is a remarkable leader, brave and heroic.

Doctor Jamie Cole played by Royce Pierreson
Warm, sensible and an excellent doctor, Jamie is madly in love with Georgie. He’s professional, compassionate and faces all crises with a calm, determined attitude.
