Dad’s Army

Dad’s Army Now on DVD

Dad’s Army is released today on Blu-Ray, DVD, and digital platforms!

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.

Daniel Mays is Private Joe Walker.  The Dad’s Army cast also includes Michael Gambon, Bill Nighy, Tony Jones, Tom Courtenay, Blake Harrision, Catherine Zeta Jones, Emily Atack, and many more.

Read Daniel Mays’s interviews on honouring the classic TV series and whether the cast would be interested in a sequel.

“I’ve tried to go with wherever the interesting choice is, whether it’s on stage, TV or film. I try to mix those up as much as possible.”

Daniel Mays has another great interview with Loaded Magazine. Danny discusses Dad’s Army, Line of Duty, why the BBC is so important, and the hard graft that is being an actor.

“Anyone can see that the BBC makes quality programmes and is in our country’s lifeblood.”

Daniel Mays stars in the upcoming Line of Duty for the BBC as well as his debut at The Old Vic in Harold Pinter’s The Caretaker.
