Dad's Army set to make a comeback after 50 years

Dad’s Army is reportedly set to make a comeback after 50 years.

Bosses at digital channel Gold plan to film three episodes of the classic TV sitcom next year with an all new A-list cast, according to the Daily Star.

Executives at the network were said to be in discussions last night about which stars will play the iconic characters in the revival.

Only Fools and Horses actor Sir David Jason is rumoured to be a potential for the role of Captain George Mainwaring, with Hugh Laurie playing Sergeant Arthur Wilson, and hardman Danny Dyer as Private Joe Walker.

The shows will see lost episodes, including Under Fire, A Stripe For Frazer, and The Loneliness Of The Long Distance Walker, remade.

When the programme aired in the 60s and 70s it was standard practice for the BBC to regularly record over or discard tapes once shows were broadcast, meaning the three episodes were lost or destroyed.
