The use of soldiers in series 3 is generally quite dreadful and badly thought out, unfortunately. It's a shame, because series 1 showed that you *can* have a sensible military presence without detracting from the heroes being the ones doing most of the action stuff.

Even in S2 there was occasionally the suggestion of a sensible military presence, even if they didn't do much in most of the episodes. But given they now have a new captain in charge in S3, they're really appalling.

Unfortunately, it seems that for most of series 3, and also series 4 and 5, to some extent, the main purpose of Becker's soldiers is as Redshirts and creature fodder. At least in series 1 when soldiers died we saw some reaction, but from here on there's nothing, not even from Becker on most occasions.

Yes, they never seemed to have learned that lesson - obviously, the soldiers are the ones most likely to get killed (can't kill off Our Heroes, at least not too many at once!) but some acknowledgement of that would be nice, even if only in passing. Also, a bit more soldierly behaviour from them! They're supposed to be SAS!
