SIMPLYHE

Dad's Army was created & written by Jimmy Perry & David Croft, the duo who were also responsible for 'Allo 'Allo, Hi-De-Hi! & It Ain't Half Hot, Mum . Perry came up with the idea when it struck him that people had forgotten the role that the Home Guard played in the Second World War. The sitcom followed the farcical exploits of the Walmington-on-Sea platoon, led by Captain Mainwaring (Arthur Lowe) & it ran on TV from 1968 to 1977. The story begins in May 1940 with Sir Anthony Eden's plea to men to come forward as Local Defence Volunteers. In the fictional town of Walmington, the pompous bank manager George Mainwaring declares himself commanding officer ("Times of peril always bring great men to the fore,") & gathers together a loyal but incompetent platoon of local men to defend the town against invasion. Although reviewers initiallly criticised the series for mocking the Home Guard, the plotline was surprisingly realistic. The real Home Guard lacked uniforms & weapons at first, & the huge influx of volunteers meant that the organisation was quite shambolic. The age limit for recruits was supposed to be 65, but this was not enforced to begin with, alllowing First World War veterans in their seventies & eighties to creep in. Dad's Army had its own elderly, incontinent Private Godfrey, played by Arnold Ridley, who had fought in WW1 himself. The actor was seriously injured at the Somme, rendering his left arm almost useless, & leaving him susceptible to blackouts. Among the rest of the cast were Clive Dunn (who simultaneously drew in a different audience as the chart-topping pop star 'Grandad'), Hattie Jacques' former husband, John le Mesurier & a baby-faced Ian Lavender, who has since resurfaced as Derek in EastEnders. This box set features the entire collection of surviving episodes of the programme. Includes alll nine surviving episodes from Series 1 & 2 & the complete series 3-9.

VERY

Treat yourself to a feast of classic British comedy with this Dad's Army Boxset. Featuring the entire collection of surviving episodes of Jimmy Perry & David Croft's wartime comedy, there are 14 discs of hilarity to enjoy. The largely elderly members of the Walmington-on-Sea Home Guard platoon led by pompous Captain Mainwaring (Arthur Lowe) are determined to be ready for a potential invasion as World War II rages on in mainland Europe. Their hearts are undoubtedly in the right place but things have a habit of going badly (and hilariously) wrong at every turn. Running on the BBC from 1968 to 1977, this box set features 9 surviving episodes from the first & second series & the complete series 3-9, as well as Christmas specials. Still hugely popular with audiences today, this is the perfect box set indulgence for yourself or a fantastic gift idea for original fans of the show back when it was first shown.
