Comedian Phill Jupitus is a long-standing and enthusiastic Dad's Army fan, and this CD features four of his favourite episodes of the classic series. In 'Fallen Idol' (3 June 1975), the men are away on a weekend exercise, and Mainwaring's decision to fraternise with the men is called into question by a fellow officer. 'The Royal Train' (22 June 1976) sees them all at Walmington on Sea railway station awaiting the arrival of His Majesty, while in 'No Spring for Frazer' (3 June 1974), Frazer loses an essential component of his Lewis gun - and fears it may have fallen into one of his coffins. Finally, in 'The Deadly Attachment' (4 May 1976) the men are given command of a captured U-Boat crew, and the German captain forms an instant dislike for Mainwaring. Providing stalwart support to the stars are John Laurie, James Beck, Arnold Ridley, Ian Lavender and Bill Pertwee. 2 CDs. 1 hr 51 mins.
