Oh, look at you and your six-pack.
Well, if you've got it PHONE RINGS I've already told you I can't do an interview, even if I wanted to.
Ridiculous! Who was that? Journalist for the Manchester Evening News, wants to do a piece.
I don't know why they bother.
I've told them they have to go through the Army Press Office.
Look, why don't you let me do breakfast? No, I'm OK.
Thanks, though, babe.
ECHOES OF HELICOPTER OVERHEAD ECHOES OF GUNFIRE SHE PANTS SHE GASPS Memories lie There's no such thing as a perfect life Oh, and I let it die But looking back I can't remember why Oh, my beautiful summer How the winter makes me wonder where you've gone SHE PANTS Mum it's me! - LAUGHTER IN OTHER ROOM - You're daft, you! - Yeah, I know.

Oh, really? All for me, then, Marie? Marie texted, so That's all right, innit? Never go out with a soldier, Marie.
We're just friends, aren't we, Fingers? Yeah, at the moment.
Mum? Mum? - Oh, all right, love? - Hiya.
Yeah, just come to get Jamie's charger.
Mum why is Fingers here? We've had them knocking on the door, love, so it's good to have a bit of added security.
Who? Who do you think? The press and that.
Right, don't tell them anything.
- We won't.
- Yeah, and don't let them in, either.
Right, I'm going for a shower.
All right.
So, you never told me that it was Elvis that saved you.
Fingers has got a gob on him, hasn't he? No, Elvis was part of the team.
So, you did speak to him, then? Yes.
He's got someone else and a kiddie and that.
And nothing happened? No.
Not really, no.
- Bloody hell, Georgie, what happened? - Nothing.
It was nothing.
How could you? Marie, don't you dare say anything.
Of course I won't say anything, Georgie.
We're sisters, aren't we? We're supposed to lie for each other.
We've got this fitting and then there's the final fitting.
Just don't put on any weight between now and the wedding, that's my advice.
Don't do an Auntie Paula.
ECHOES OF FAINT GUNFIRE Went to the first fitting, by the time she turned up to her final fitting she was eight months pregnant.
You're not pregnant, are you, Georgie? - What? - No, course not, you wouldn't be that daft cos he's a doctor.
Come here, you.
- She looks gorgeous.
- Oh, it's definitely the one.
You look so beautiful.
Seriously, Georgie, I've gone all goosey.
Look at me skin VOICES BEGIN TO FADE SHE GASPS Hey, what you doing?! Oh.
I'm sorry.
You all right, love? I just thought you were someone else, I'm sorry.
Couldn't breathe in there, that's all.
- Yeah, well, that'll be guilt.
- Piss off.
You've got to be brave, right? What on earth are you doing, Georgie? She's seeing sense, that's what's happened.
- Wind your neck in.
- Mum, I'm sorry, I was really hot.
No, it's all right, love.
It is hot in there.
But the lady said she'd turn the heating down, so Oh, sorry, love.
Are you OK? - Yeah.
- Come on, I've got you.
She just got a bit hot, that's all.
But everything's fine now, eh, Georgie? Yeah, sorry.
Can I use your toilet? Of course, just through there.
Try not to get any piss stains on your train, eh, George? So you marry Jamie, and you get it into your thick skull that you can never see Elvis again.
You can't even think about him.
I can't even sleep at night, Marie.
Yeah, I'm not surprised.
OK, I'm fine.
Everything's fine.
Hi! I'm home! You've been published! - Mm-hm.
- Oh! That's amazing! - Congratulations.
- Thank you.
Thank you.
We'll have to get some copies for your mum and dad.
I ordered several dozen! We'll save seven for each of the children we're going to have.
And my nan will want one as well.
At least it'll give me something to brag about during the Q and A.
What Q and A? St George's tomorrow, remember? No.
No, you never mentioned it.
I could skip it if you need me to stay here with you.
What, in case I self-harm? Moved all the knives out of the kitchen, just in case.
So, you're going to London tomorrow? Yeah.
Yeah, it's up and back in a day I think I said, I mentioned? No.
- No? - Mm-mm.
I didn't want to keep banging on about it.
You've got enough to worry about.
You know what you should do? Take all the magazines down and then just just scatter them everywhere.
Already e-mailed the professor there and attached the piece.
Said if it was of any use, he can let the students read it before they meet me.
Oh so you're making it out it's about them but it's really about you blowing your own trumpet.
- Mm-hm.
- Mm-hm.
Why don't I come? I've been wanting to go to London for ages.
You really want to come? Mm-hm, yeah.
Don't worry, I won't get in your way.
I'll see you at St George's at four, yeah? - Yeah.
Don't be late.
- Always on parade punctually.
- Good luck.
You're going to smash it.
- Thank you.
Thank you for agreeing to meet me.
No problem.
I'm working at the MoD today, anyway, so It's good to put a face to a name.
Georgie's spoken a lot about you.
Well she's a a vital member of the section.
Who now needs a rest to get herself better.
Look, you do understand she's ill, don't you? I don't want her agreeing to go back to work if all it's going to do is worsen her condition.
We understand her situation.
She's constantly being assessed by the Army psychiatric team.
- Look, we have a duty of care - So do I, Captain James.
How can I help? I'm here to make sure it's Georgie the Army puts first.
We're getting married and I don't Well, we're getting married.
My wife is a serving soldier.
Who's suffering from PTSD? I only meant that marriages can work, even if one is in the Army and away on tour.
Georgie shouldn't be contemplating going on tour.
She needs complete rest.
I think you and I both know it'll be her who decides what to do and when.
You shouldn't be putting those ideas into her head.
Look I'm not just her commanding officer I also genuinely care what's best for her.
Thank God you got her out of there.
Special forces boys did most of the work.
I wish I could thank 'em.
So, what, were they Kenyan or British or ? What, are you not allowed to say? - Say goodbye to Daddy, Laura.
- Got to go to Mummy now.
See you next week! - Say bye.
- Bye! Come on, off we go.
Say bye-bye.
Georgie! - What you doing here? - Elvis, it don't matter now.
- What did you want? - I shouldn't have come.
VOICE BREAKING: What am I doing? Hey.
Talk to me.
I'm imagining things.
I'm seeing people that aren't there.
Who do you think you've been seeing? Well, he's dead, so it can't be him.
- Abu? - Yeah.
What? After the air strike, the Kenyans went in to find DNA evidence, trying to identify who'd been neutralised.
But how could he survive? The place got obliterated.
That's the thing.
They found a very impressive network of tunnels underneath the dwelling.
So he escaped? Really?! We let him escape? - We didn't let him escape.
- So he's smarter than the British Army? Oh, my God.
Every time I close my eyes at night, I see him.
His face.
And when I do manage to get to sleep he's always there.
- I'm losing it, aren't I? - No, you're not.
Well, he's not really following me, is he? There is no way he has got back into the UK.
Trust me.
- I will report the sightings but try to - So it's - So it's all my imagination? - Yeah.
So he tried to kill you, didn't he? He killed a fellow hostage.
It's natural that you feel a bit shaken, anyone would.
All right? - OK.
- Good.
- I've got to go.
- Go on.
- See you.
- See you later.
INDISTINCT CHATTER - Thank you for coming.
- Thank you.
You smashed it.
Oh, I haven't been that nervous since I asked you to marry me.
Judy! This is my partner, Georgie.
- Hi.
- I've obviously heard all about you.
Judy and I trained together.
What an ordeal you've been through.
Er, so you work here, then? She studied here, now she's back tutoring.
Can't keep me away.
Sometimes Georgie tutors the new recruits at Pirbright.
Yeah, the thing with trainee doctors is they listen, unlike the squaddies.
Yeah, but you can make them listen or it's solitary confinement and 50 lashes.
Er, Judy invited us back for a little, er, reception in the staffroom.
Oh, nothing too grand.
Finger buffet.
Extended to all guest speakers and their plus-ones, of course.
I don't think I've ever made it into the staff quarters.
I'll, er, see you later, JJ.
JJ? Oh, er No, there were two Jamies in the year, so I became JJ.
Do you fancy a bit of finger buffet? You've never mentioned erm Judy? - PHONE BEEPS - Haven't I? - MAN: Great talk, Jamie.
- Thank you.
What is it? You know my cousin who lives in Belsize Park? - Yeah, what about her? - Well, I said if I had time I'd nip in for a brew, so Well, I'll come with you.
No, no.
No, no.
- You've got Judy.
- No, a quick bite and we'll see her on the way home.
I'd rather just meet you at Euston.
Besides, I don't really fancy a finger buffet.
Sometimes I feel like there's a part of you - I'm not allowed to know.
- Er, do you know Just a second.
I didn't know who Judy was.
But surely they don't actually think it's Abu, do they? Well, the MoD think there's a chance he could be in the country.
Just talk to them.
Explain to the brigadier what you may or may not have seen.
If he's unaccounted for, he's going to be desperate to glean as much as he can from you.
But I don't even know it was him! Yes, but now they need to make doubly sure that any intel you have is shared with all agencies.
Do they think he's planning something on home soil? Yeah.
They've been monitoring the movements of the mother.
In fact, his entire close family are under 24-hour surveillance.
As will you be.
- Lance Corporal Lane.
- Sir.
Let's get started, shall we? Right.
Right, well, I'm getting a cab now, all right? OK, bye.
You didn't go and see your cousin, did you? Sorry.
I just didn't want you to be cross.
So did you meet someone? Only the Army, yeah.
- So you did meet someone? - No! Not someone.
Special forces who helped with my rescue wanted to interview me again.
Why couldn't they do it properly, professionally? What's all this cloak and dagger coming to London to shop stuff? - I was coming to London to shop.
- Mm! Look, they called me and I met them.
They're, erm They're giving us close security for a few days.
24 hours.
Close security? 24 hours a day? Why? I can't give you any details on the train, can I? - I'm going to be your husband! - Yes, I know! You know I won't let you down, don't you? We are getting married.
You know, don't you? Know what? - Who told you? - No-one.
It was my mum, wasn't it? - My mum.
- All she said was some guy let you down on the day of your wedding and he was Army but she didn't even tell me his name.
What was his name? When we first started out, you said to me that you didn't care about my past, only the future, right? - Yeah.
- Right, so after that I just didn't know how to bring it back up.
You know? Anyway, he doesn't even enter my mind so it's just irrelevant, the whole thing.
Just one thing from now on.
One thing.
Be honest with me.
That's all.
Double lock the front door.
If you could just let us know of any planned movements So you'll follow us everywhere? There'll always be someone outside and we'll just shadow you as you go about your business.
OK? It's so weird.
What? The fact that he's out there somewhere, looking for us.
Well, we don't know he's actually looking for us.
Do we? It's freaking me out.
Well, I'll look after you.
Or close protection will look after you.
THEY LAUGH I wish you could have stayed for the reception.
Why? They said I could go back and tutor there and eventually work towards my professorship.
What, they actually offered you a job? Offered for now.
Was it that Judy? - She's not "that" Judy - Well She's, no She works there, OK, it won't be her decision but she can help.
I don't I don't know what to say.
I don't have to give them a definitive answer for 24 hours.
But what about my job? You know, I'm a soldier.
I'm a Manchester girl.
Yeah, but you spend most of your life somewhere else.
Afghan, Sierra Leone, Germany, Kenya why not London? We always talked about it being your last tour before we got married.
Maybe now is a good time to bow out.
Leave the Army.
I don't know I I don't know if I'm ready.
Well, if we're going to have seven kids, we're going to have to start banging them out soonish.
Banging them out?! You make me sound like a beast.
- I'm in attendance as your Army liason.
- Yes, I know, sir.
Counter Terrorism Command from here on in.
- The big guns.
- Oh, yes.
I'm here to look after your best interests.
- Sir.
- Good morning.
How's life treating you, Lane? Fine.
We all know it's not the easiest to adjust after a tour.
Yeah, well If you ever need to talk I've briefed them and they've obviously read your file.
If you ever don't understand anything, - just ask me and I'll clarify it.
- OK.
- You got this? - Yes.
So, there's nothing for you to be alarmed about, Lane Sir.
but we now have confirmation Raynott re-entered the country on August 28th.
Arrived on a passenger flight from Ethiopia.
Why didn't we apprehend him? False passport.
What, it's that simple, sir? Occasionally.
Until he's apprehended we assume he's active.
Intelligence have now led us to the cleric we think radicalised Raynott.
Hassan al-Shwadify, originally Egyptian he's been preaching in Manchester for the past seven years.
Not at any of his known addresses, which leads us to contemplate he might be part of an active cell with Raynott.
We need you to stay calm and focused.
So what you're saying is, right that my sightings of him might not have been delusions but it it might have been him? So what do you Do you think he might have found out where I am and ? We need you to plot all the places you think you may have seen him.
Then we can trawl through the CCTV footage and try and find him.
We're going to catch him, Lane.
So I came running out of the shop, couldn't see him.
Just thought it was a case of - what d'you call it? - mistaken identity.
Anyway, I saw this guy, I just grabbed him and it wasn't Abu.
Was Abu alone? Er, yeah.
Yeah, if it was even him, yeah.
Actually, no.
What am I talking about? I don't know.
I don't know.
He might or he might not have been alone.
I'm sorry.
We'll go and check the CCTV.
You all right? Yeah.
Don't worry, I'll be ready for Syria.
- What? - Well, let's see how all this pans out.
I'm fine.
You need to rest, get yourself 100% sorted and then we can think about Syria.
You're a bloody good soldier and you've had a lot of shit chucked at you.
Once you've got your head sorted, there's nothing I want more than to have you back.
Yeah, we're coming up now.
So he was here.
I wasn't just imagining it.
Having studied the files and watched the tapes of your debrief in Kenya, Lane you seemed certain his planned attack was Kenya, not home soil.
I think I just presumed it, sir.
It was nothing concrete.
In your statement, Lane, you said, "I didn't have long in their ops room but there were these drawings, sketches.
I think they showed the entrance to a shopping centre and there was this sculpture like a bird.
" This operation is being escalated to severe.
Attack highly likely.
This now involves the Home Office.
What time do you call this, you dirty stop-out? Oh, you shouldn't.
You made me jump! Sorry, I was worried.
I thought you wanted to sit in on the call with St George's.
Oh, Jamie.
I'm sorry.
What, what is it? Er I've been with Counter Terrorism Command.
Thing is, Abu's been following me and I'm shit scared because I don't know what to do.
What? I'm sorry I wasn't here for you.
Don't be daft.
Don't be daft.
I turned them down anyhow.
- For me? - No, for us.
Don't worry, it's going to be all right.
Why don't you just ditch this bullshit? - Language! - This is archaic crap - GUNSHOTS - SCREAMING Get down! Everybody get down! Get down! We need an ambulance.
It's OK.
I'm here.
Who's Elvis? He's one of the boys.
Part of my rescue.
So, why do they call him Elvis? Has he got a bit of a quiff going on? You know what the boys are like in the Army, they've all got weird nicknames for each other.
PHONE BUZZES He's persistent.
You should get that.
Go on.
So they want my section as part of the counterterrorism op because I've had experience in dealing with Abu.
Yeah, well, you didn't do a very good job, did you? You let him get away.
Yeah, well, I'm going to be incommunicado for the foreseeable.
But you've got five minutes to buy me a brew if you fancy it.
I'll meet you in the cafe on Fortune Road, fill you in on what's occurring.
Polish cafe? That's the one.
- All right, bye.
- All right.
Well, it's turning out to be one of the north-west's biggest peacetime operations.
Emergency medical room is fully kitted out, 70 beds.
All police on active duty.
Several thousand troops on standby.
You get the gist.
All based on my ramblings.
No, based on a radicalised extremist roaming the area.
Yeah, well, the shopping centre was all my intel.
We've got contingency plans for multiple sites to be hit simultaneously.
We're expecting a number of terrorists, not just Abu.
Shopping centre being an obvious potential target, as well as other crowded, public places.
There's just so many options.
CTC are preparing for a situation where they hit up to ten targets at the same time.
Right, so the shopping centre is just one on the list.
Your intel is just one small part of a whole.
Now stop worrying.
I do know what's going on inside your head.
- You reckon? - I know.
Right, you pay, I'm going to the loo.
All right, mate? Not too bad, yourself? Yeah, what's the breakfast like here? Best Polish breakfast this side of Kiev.
Listen, I don't mean to sound ungrateful and I am very grateful you saved Georgie in Kenya but maybe now's time you get the fuck out of our lives.
Who the fuck do you think you're talking to? Sorry, love.
- You paying for both? - No.
I'll get these.
What's going on? Oh, it's just a little thank you to Elvis for saving your life.
Yeah, I'm buying you breakfast.
Come on, Georgie, let's go.
THUNDER RUMBLES We used to come here every Sunday with my nan to feed the ducks.
Apparently you're not allowed to give ducks bread any more.
I feel guilty now.
Got anything else to feel guilty about? What? Did anything happen between you and Elvis out there? Jamie, no! Was he the one that didn't turn up to the altar? SHE SIGHS Oh, my I knew it! - Jamie - I know everything you've been through.
- I know.
- I was always there for you, supported you, everything.
Look, you've been brilliant.
- Brilliant! - Yes.
Brilliant, just not brilliant enough that you wouldn't have lied to me! Georgie, the lying is too much.
- Look - No, I need to get back to work.
Well, I'll see you at home then, yeah? I think we should push the wedding back a few weeks.
Are you going for one night or two? I don't know, I don't know how long I'll be gone.
Why? I've got meetings and Will you stay with your parents? Do you want me to? I think it would be best.
Jamie DOOR SLAMS But why, Georgie, why? We've decided to delay it, that's all.
Calm your tits.
- We just don't get it, Georgie.
- Well, there you go.
We're just putting it back a bit.
- But when, is there a date? - Please, Mum! We just want what's best for you, Georgie.
- This is so upsetting, Georgie.
- Has she called it off? (We're dealing with the situation here, all right?) Can I come in, love? Mum, I'm all right! Well, you're clearly not all right, are you, Georgie? What about Jamie, is he all right? Georgie, for once in your life you are going to have to listen.
Extraction complete.
Primary recovered.
Repeat, primary recovered.
All is well in the world.
PHONE BUZZES Is that Jamie, love? - Be nice, eh? - - No-one could ever question your timing.
- Yeah, I don't want to know.
- Anyway, you need to hear this.
- Go on? GCHQ have been monitoring all phone activity of Raynott's known associates, one of them has just pinged onto a mast near a shopping centre.
Voice analysis has confirmed it's Raynott.
The terror threat is now escalated to critical, attack expected imminently.
Do they know when? Imminent's the only intel we have.
We're going to wait out.
Oh, fuck.
Listen, we're on standby.
All hospitals are on red alert.
Out of the way.
Just let me speak to her.
It's locked, Marie.
Why couldn't you do that? Elvis, I will call you back in a sec.
Of all the people you could have had your head turned by, - why that twat? - It's not as simple as that, Marie.
- Oh, is it not? - No! Leave the Army.
Marry Jamie.
Be happy.
I love you.
I'm your soulmate.
Am I right or am I right? - Yeah, you're right.
- Thank you.
Don't call that twat back.
I just can't bear to see you go through that again, Georgie.
As your mum, it broke my heart.
And then Jamie came along, you started to live your life again.
Live it properly, not like the one you had with Elvis.
Jamie makes you happy, if you could only just bloody see it.
Maybe I don't know how to be happy any more.
- He's not met someone else, has he? - No! - Least I don't think so.
- Good.
Because you two are perfect together.
REPORTER: Breaking news now.
We are getting reports that the terror threat level in Manchester has been raised to critical.
It's due to credible evidence presented to Counter Terrorism Command earlier today.
This means that an attack could happen imminently in the city.
The upgraded threat level means you can expect to see increased police presence across the city and reinforcements at key locations throughout Greater Manchester.
- This includes stop and search systems - coordinated attacks.
In addition to police, we are told Army units are reportedly being put on standby with a focus not only on coordinated threats but also the possibility of lone wolf-style attacks.
Officers in position at all other potential targets, sir.
The entire vicinity is being monitored for any suspicious activity.
Stand by then, chaps.
FAINT RADIO CHATTER Suspected target seen boarding the 179 in the town centre, spotted on CCTV.
We're on, boys.
REPORTER: Greater Manchester Police and Whitehall are reiterating the message to people in the city to remain calm.
The officers will also be performing stop and search on individuals and we ask the public to cooperate.
We just need to search your bag, sir.
Keep your arms up, that's it.
- Can you open your bag, please, madam? - Move along.
Open your bag, please, sir.
Let's get on to the bus company and ground all buses.
Respectfully, that's going to take too long.
Permission to move now, sir.
Go! PEOPLE CHATTER Armed police! Show me your hands! Show me your hands! Suspect down.
Detonator neutralised.
- Nobody move! - Are you alone? Bravo One Zero, this is Sierra Three Alpha.
We have overwatch.
Marie, it's me, I need you to call me back, all right? I need you to come home.
Here we go.
Prepare to breach.
DOOR BEEPS - I thought you were up town.
- No, I can't get a bus.
- Good, stay in.
- Why? Cos there's loads of shit going down.
- All call signs on me now.
- Roger.
Where the hell's Lulu? Lulu, come down.
Let Georgie see you're still alive.
Spanner, top deck.
My love, under your seat there's a rucksack, can you tell me if it's yours, please? Rucksack? With my back? Right, OK.
I need everyone's attention.
Can everybody slowly make their way off the front of the bus, please? Soon as possible.
Thank you.
That's it.
Keep moving.
Down you go.
Medium-sized rucksack found under seat 24.
Human lives threatened and collateral damage.
Remote device confirmed.
We need to block the signal.
That's a remote device confirmed.
Repeat, remote device confirmed.
Block all signals.
All signals blocked.
Let's scramble a helicopter, the target's on the move.
Evacuate immediate area.
I want a 100-yard exclusion zone.
Get everybody out of their cars and away now.
- Roger.
- Go.
EXPLOSION FAINTLY: What was that? Georgie, what was that? Georgie, what was it? TV: We have received information that a man has detonated an explosive vest on George Street It does appear that there may have been several incidents.
Talking about a device being found on a bus which was stopped outside Fled the bus - so we are led to assume - that this man is still at large.
KNOCK AT THE WINDOW I've been reading about it online.
- Yeah? - Yeah.
- Any fatalities? - One plus the suicide bomber.
- Abu? - No, one of his associates.
You were spot-on about Abu, though.
How? He tried to bomb the shopping centre.
Along with another suspect who's now been arrested.
A bloke called Naazir.
Right, well, what about Abu, have you got him? Oh, I'm sorry.
I'm not having this.
- You need to go, Elvis.
- Mum - Grace, it's not what it looks like.
- No, I don't want to hear it! You need to go and you need to leave us alone.
- I can appreciate - I don't want to hear it! I don't want to hear it! I'm just thinking of you, Georgie, so I don't need the evils.
So what happened? His accomplice had to detonate his vest out in the open.
If Abu had got in that shopping centre, trust me, it would have been carnage.
- So you let him go.
- We didn't let him go, he disappeared! We found his explosive device on the bus but he was nowhere to be seen.
So what now? Come on, you did a good thing today.
It was a waste of time, wasn't it? You let him slip through your fingers.
Georgie! Georgie! Listen to me.
I do love you, you know.
Elvis, I can't be happy with you again.
It's too late! - No, it isn't.
- Yes, it is, Elvis.
OK, once upon a time But no, not now.
- Georgie, don't go.
- Elvis, please! I didn't go to London.
Got called back to the hospital.
I was so scared, not knowing if you were OK.
I thought you'd never want to see me again.
Can I ask you one question? Yeah.
Is it properly over between you and Elvis? Yeah, I promise.
And nothing happened in Kenya? No.
I'm leaving the Army.
I've made up my mind.
You have to do what you want to do.
All I want to do is marry you.
CHEERING She's leaving the Army and starting a new life.
Back off.
- Big day Saturday then.
- Yeah.
Yeah, it's not a secret.
Well, how about you tell me who you really just met up with? KNOCK AT DOOR It's not like you to turn up on my wedding day.
It's too dangerous.
Abu is out there somewhere.
With a vest I'll be in control.
Do you think he knows about the wedding? Think about it, Georgie.
It's the first day of your new life, you don't think he'd want to ruin that? Find Abu and neutralise him.
