Preview – Dad’s Army

Dad's Army

It’s always worth looking back at the classic sitcom, especially as this year marks its 50th anniversary.

Tonight on BBC Two is a showing of “Wake Up, Walmington”, the first episode from the final series. In it, Mainwaring and Hodges team up to give the town a scare in order to get the locals to take the Home Guard and the ARP seriously. This episode is notable for featuring Geoffrey Lumsden’s final appearance as Captain Square, and some great costumes (see Pike dressed as American gangster).

Dad’s Army is on BBC Two at 19.30.
