How can you not love these guys.. and odd lady

Any additional comments?

Dad's Army is a often repeated and often enjoyed series. The characters are wonderful and are like everyone's grandad.

I have loved the TV show since I was a young lad and continue to do so now I am much older.

The only downside for me is that these are straight from TV and therefore some of the humor is visual. However, I defy many people not to have seen the episodes and remember them well for this to only be a small downside.

Highly recommended to brighten any dull day. I am still working my way through for when I have a particularly trying day or feel the need for a lift. This is one audio book I go too.

Dads Army

What did you like most about Dad's Army?

after watching the tv series for many years, starting with my grandad when i was an awful lot younger, this series feels like it has been a part of my life for ever, it never lets you down and you almost feel as if you know the characters as old friends

What other book might you compare Dad's Army to, and why?

there is nothing else to compare to dads army

Which character – as performed by Arthur Lowe and Full Cast – was your favourite?

i have liked all of the characters involved throughout and have had various favourites depending upon their story line, possibly my all time favourite though is cpl jones

A Comedy Classic

Simply put Dad's Army is and will always remain a masterpiece of comedy and this audiobook does nothing but continue that trend. With the same outstanding cast that was seen on the screens this will keep you laughing from beginning to end and is an audio that you will listen to again and again and again!

Unsurprisingly Wonderful!

Apart from being superb value for credit, as it were, where sheer amount of content is concerned the real selling point here are the wonderful, charming, comic scripts adapted from their televisual counterparts. While it is a shame that the original Pvt. Walker wasn't able to take part the rest of the cast are all present and correct with each member of the troupe proving their chops as radio actors (even if Clive Dunn does mug for the microphone more often than he should).

Very funny, and a very worthy title.

Happy Memories.

Would you listen to Dad's Army again? Why?

Yes; because it is that sort or easy going British Humour, the kind that wears very well, it becomes like an old friend.

Any additional comments?

Great value, close your eyes and happily relive some of your childhood or younger years.
