We Love Dad's Army

Post by Private Frazer »

I enjoyed this Channel 5 documentary with lots of new (to me) looks behind the scenes. I especially liked them in/on Jones's van in the London to Brighton car run. It was nice to, at least, hear Ian Lavender's 2020 comments; maybe done over the phone or from the radio? Good to see Caroline Dowdeswell; I always thought it would have been good if she had remained in the show. The choice of clips was pretty good with Fraser's Story of the 'old empty barn'. I didn't know he had done Hamlet before he was 30 and so even younger than David Tennant did. A very rewatchable addition to all the other docus.

Enjoy it now, before John Laurie's portrayal of a Scotsman becomes 'inappropriate for today's audience'.

Didn't see it, but agree about Caroline Dowdeswell, she should have continued in it, a lovely Actress who should have done a lot more on TV.
