The Last Post – BBC One, 21:00

Alison (Jessica Raine) is a bad-girl, drunken, unhappy and unfaithful wife of the military policeman Lieutenant Ed Laithwaite (Stephen Campbell Moore). The drama series managed to convey the atmosphere of heat and dust and the day-to-day life of the military wives on the Royal Military Police base. The opening episode starts with the arrival of newlyweds Captain Joe Martin (Jeremy Neumark Jones) and his wise Honor (Jessie Buckley). Ed Laithwaite learns that an attack on the base is imminent.
