About the Book
In the annals of British television, no finer example of classic comedy exists than "Dad's Army," the Home Guard-based sitcom written by veteran writers Jimmy Perry and David Croft. Although they penned many other sterling programs, including "Hi-De-Hi " and the underrated "You Rang, M'Lord?," they'll forever be remembered for their brilliant wartime comedy spotlighting the antics of the Walmington-on-Sea Home Guard, led by the irascible and pompous Captain Mainwaring. Between 1968 and 1977, nine series and three Christmas specials--totalling 80 installments--were screened, much to the delight of the millions of fans who tuned in; but the show's popularity has continued unabated and even today, four decades since the platoon marched onto the scene, it remains one of the golden offerings from the sitcom genre. This guide includes the history--an overview of how the show was born and developed; gags and catchphrases--a collection of classic quotes from the program; Did You Know?--snippets of info about the show, cast, and more; favorite scenes--the most memorable scenes in full; and a "Dad's Army" quiz.
