It’s been a while coming but the wait is over. The first trailer for the remake of Dad’s Army hits the small, Interweb, Screen.
I have said that it could be a disaster or a triumph. I feel it’s somewhere in the middle. Possibly because of what is is up against. Itself, mainly because it was soo good and everyone will be comprising this on to the series. Compare it to the last big screen outing not the TV series. The two mediums are totally different.
It is 1944 and World War II is reaching its climax. The Allies are poised to invade France and finally defeat the German army. But in Walmington-on-Sea morale amongst the Home Guard is low. Their new mission then – to patrol the Dover army base – is a great chance to revive spirits and reputation, that is until glamorous journalist Rose Winters arrives to write about their exploits, setting the pulses racing and putting the local women on red alert. MI5 then discover a radio signal sent direct to Berlin from Walmington-on-Sea. There’s a spy on the loose! The outcome of the war is suddenly at stake, and it falls to our unlikely heroes to stand up and be counted.
