Gary Tank Commander The new six-part comedy series, Gary: Tank Commander follows the life of Corporal Gary McLintoch (Greg McHugh). Recently returned home from his tour of duty in Iraq, Gary is now based back at the barracks. He offers candid insights into the life of a soldier - both on the frontline and back at home.
Gary talks us through life on the frontline; the fight for hearts and minds and why Iraqis love to hit statues with their thongs. The series follows the camp tank commander, mixing documentary style interviews and flashbacks clips to hilarious moments in the barracks.
In the first episode, Gary returns from Iraq to a hero's welcome at the airport from his excitable childhood friend, Julie (Leah MacRae). He's only just had time to catch up with her and say a quick hello to his Dad before he and his tank crew find themselves on recruitment duty.
Jacko (Robert Jack) is paired with Charlie (Scott Fletcher), while Gary and Adam (Paul-James Corrigan) team up in the local shopping centre. Reporting to the straight-laced Sergeant Splitter, they aren't having any luck finding the next recruit, although Gary and Adam each find a far better use for the shopping centre. But then Splitter signs up the worst recruit possible, leaving Gary and Adam with a great escape to pull off before it's too late.
