Dad's Army

A classic clip from The Deadly Attachment

Written by Jimmy Perry and David Croft

Don't tell him Pike!

Dad's Army is a guilty pleasure of mine. I first watched this programme when I was seven.

The wartime antics of the Walmington-on-Sea Home Guard were an essential part of the nation's entertainment in the years spanning 1968-1977. Captain Mainwaring, Sergeant Wilson, Corporal Jones, Privates Pike, Godfrey, Walker and Frazer would create enough hilarity in their own incompetence and heroic, if misplaced endeavours, but add a vicar, a verger, an overbearing ARP warden - and Pike's mum - and the whole thing gelled into a comedy masterpiece. Dad's Army had the lot: class tension; comic characters; farcical situations and hilarious scripts by Jimmy Perry and David Croft and is cherished as one of the nation's favourite situation comedies.
