Red Cap

From Wikipedia

Red Cap is a British television series produced by Stormy Pictures for the BBC and broadcast on BBC One. Two series of 6 episodes each were produced following a feature length pilot. It featured the investigations (and personal relationships) of an SIB unit of the British Army based in Germany. Ostensibly the lead character was Sergeant Jo McDonagh (nickname; McDoughnut), played by Tamzin Outhwaite, but the show was more of an ensemble piece, with several notable characters coming to prominence.

Nicola made a guest appearance in episode 4 of Series 2, titled “Fighting Fit”. She played Maj. Rebecca Garton, who was the commanding officer of a solder who died in mysterious circumstances. She appeared in only one scene – she was brushing down her horse at the stables when she was interviewed by the show’s two lead investigators.
