Dad’s Army Too

current location: KY16 8SX

For anyone who missed it, the trailer for the forthcoming Dad’s Army movie was released a couple of weeks ago. It's due in cinemas in February.

I'm a bit cautious about the prospect of a movie, because the one with the original cast back in the 1970s was an absolute turkey. Why did so many perfectly good sitcoms of the period wind up as terrible, terrible movies? However, on the admittedly dubious grounds of a trailer it looks like this might be quite good.

Bill Nihy as Wilson is an inspired choice. Not sure about make Mainwaring's wife visible, though I can see why they need to have a few more women in it.

Is this journey really necessary, though?

It's not necessary and if it were me making the decisions I would have left well alone. However, if they have made a decent job of it, I'll applaud them! :-) After all, if it can be recast and re-played sympathetically by local drama societies I guess there's no real reason why it can't be done well with a commercial budget - I hope...

Absolute genius idea of having Bill Nihy as Wilson

Looking good, I'll see it at the local Odeon
