Storyline

The platoon is to take part in an exercise to supposedly place a bomb in a windmill occupied by the Eastgate men. It is decided that, as the mill is by water, Frazer, in an ancient diving suit left him by a friend who died of the Dreaded Bends, will push Jones, disguised as a log, up to the mill, where Jones will discharge the 'bomb' and, thanks to clever decoy plans used to fool Square, Jones successfully makes it, only to get caught up on the windmill's sails.

Trivia

Mainwaring is said by Captain Square to have a 'Blimp mentality'. This is referring to the cartoon character, Colonel Blimp, developed by David Low in the 1930s. (It is not referring to the character in the film, The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp (1943) as this film was released after the time period covered in the 'Dad's Army' series). See more »

Goofs

The vehicle in the background of the "drilling" scene looks very much like Jones's van. See more »

Silly but full of laughs.
10 June 2018 | by See all my reviews

On the very odd occasion when I watch the great Dad's Army I truly see the underpinnings of Allo Allo, a fine comedy but definitely a lot sillier then the magical Dad's Army. Don't Forget the Diver starts off with some fun moments then transforms into some hilarious slapstick comedy, with funny costines, funny walks, a fun windmill scene and a hilarious moment with Jones and a dog. Favourite moment for me has to be where the vicar nonchelantly picks up a call from a grave intended for The Verger, so unbelievably daft it had me laughing out loud.

Hugely Allo Allo, loaded with slapstick and silly laughs.

Fun 7/10
