This is a great analysis.

One of the differences, as you say, is that Mark had the military background and was given the job of organising the extras himself. So even when the writing had them doing something totally daft, like the formation movement into the lift, they managed to look like soldiers whilst doing it.

From the end of s1 onwards that had been lost.

Becker suffers from the constraints of the writers.

But yes, he is a great hero!

Becker definitely suffered from a lot of bad or sloppy writing, unfortunately. It's just such a shame that after the realistic and sensible use of military in series 1, they never quite managed to acheive that balance again in later series.
