Reverend Timothy Farthing: The morris dancers have booked the hall for one o'clock. I do hope you're not going to run over.

Crazy Credits

The closing credits sequence begins with a caption "You have been watching", followed by scenes of the various characters marching, with captions that show the actors' names but not their characters' names. This is exactly the same style as was used in the original TV series. See more »

As a long time fan I loved it and laughed a lot.
27 February 2016 | by Adrian MerrallSee all my reviews

As someone who watched Dad's Army a long time ago and still puts the DVDs on from time to time I loved it and laughed the whole way through.

The casting was excellent. The characters were close enough to the original but still bought enough of their own version to make something new.

In discussion with other Dad's Army fans we were worried that this might be a disappointment but on the contrary, I thought it was very well done.

If you are new to Dad's Army, it might be a puzzle or may not stand well enough on its own but otherwise go and see it.
