Dad’s Army: The Lost Episodes will premiere on Gold on Sunday August 25th at 8pm and will air over consecutive nights, concluding on Tuesday August 27th, it has been announced.
Dad’s Army: The Lost Episodes is a series of remakes of episodes from the second season of Dad’s Army that were lost as a result of the BBC’s archival policy during the 1960s and 1970s. The episodes being remade are The Loneliness Of The Long Distance Walker, A Stripe For Frazer and Under Fire.
The three-part series is being produced by Mercury Productions, who have worked closely with the Estates of the original writers, Jimmy Perry and David Croft, to recreate the episodes using the original scripts. The cast includes Robert Bathurst (Cold Feet), Kevin R. McNally (Pirates Of The Caribbean), Bernard Cribbins (Doctor Who), Kevin Eldon (Murder On The Blackpool Express), Mathew Horne (Gavin & Stacey), David Hayman (Taboo) and Tom Rosenthal (Friday Night Dinner).
