The British Empire strikes back in Dad's Army!Based on the BBC television sitcom, this hilarious update features a stellar cast that bring these much loved characters to life once again.
The new arrival is glamorous and mysterious journalist Rose Winters (Catherine Zeta-Jones), who has been sent to report on the Walmington-on-Sea Home Guard as the war effort continues in 1944.
But MI5 discovers that a German spy is hiding in the town, and the platoon finally have a chance to have a real impact on the war before it draws to a close.
The Home Guard gang try to get their act together, with Toby Jones delivering a remarkable Arthur Lowe impression as Captain Mainwaring, while Bill Nighy stars as the bumbling Sergeant Wilson, Tom Courtenay plays the excitable Corporal Jones and Michael Gambon dodders about as the elderly Godfrey.
Directed by Oliver Parker, this charming British comedy also stars Mark Gatiss, Blake Harrison, Daniel Mays and Bill Paterson. We even get cameos from two of the original cast from the TV show, with Frank Williams and Ian Lavender reprising their roles from the original series as the Reverend Timothy Farthing and the now promoted Brigadier Pritchard, respectively.
Dad's Army DVD - certificate PG.
