The calm before the storm begins.

The seventh series of Dad's Army was the first series without James Beck as Private Walker, and unfortunately, the show was not the same without him.
True, this series still feature a few good episodes in 'Man of Action', 'The Captain's Car' and 'Turkey Dinner', but something was still missing with the absence of one of the main characters. The arrival of news reporter Mr Cheeseman didn't really help matters, as he came across as more of a supporting character and just wasn't as funny as Walker.
Series 7 is still worth a look at, but if you want to catch only one of the later series, you'd be better off catching series 8.
