Here we are again, 13 more classic episodes of Dads Army comedy madness, I'm glad the BBC are releasing them so quickly after such a long wait!!!
What is even better is that the episodes in series 4 are some of the best ever produced, particularly "The Two and a Half Feathers" which recites Corporal Jones's experiences in the Sudan that we have been hearing about since the first series! Other episodes see Wilson become a bank manager and Captain Mainwaring perhaps find the woman he should have married when she joins the Home Guard!!! There are so many classic moments to describe here I cannot fit them into my word limit so we must move on...
The special features are similar to those of series 3, with a featurette on James Beck, who played Walker - the spiv character who is always "supplying essential supplies" to his 'clients' and customers!
This DVD is a must, hilariously funny, witty and full of the classic catchphrases we've all come to love, such as: "You stupid boy" and "They dont like it up 'em". We have to wait until series 6 to hear the phrase of the show: "don't tell him Pike" but until then, why not watch this series, as its every bit as good!

By Snerdle VINE VOICE on 10 Aug. 2005

By this fourth series Dad's Army was probably somewhere near its peak, although it could be argued there were even greater episodes to come such as 'Time On My Hands' 'Keep Young and Beautiful' and 'The Deadly Attachment' in the next couple of series. However this series does feature some of the classic sitcom's finest moments. including 'Boots Boots Boots' and perhaps my favourite Dad's Army episode ever 'Fallen Idol'. This is the one where Mainwaring gets made a 'cardinal' (which means he gets legless) and the classic exchange between Mainwaring and Wilson over Pike's teddy bear Mr Snuggly! You have to see it! I particularly envy those who haven't ever seen some (or any) of these episodes. What a treat they have to come!

Dad's Army falls into three distinct phases. The first three series saw the show trying to find its feet, and, while charming and unusual, were not hilarious. The next three series made up for this with a vengeance. Between the fourth and sixth series Dad's Army went on an incredible tour-de-force of comedy, including farce, slapstick, and puns, of which this is one very fine example. From the glorious confusion of Uninvited Guests, where the Home Guard and the Wardens conspire to set fire to the church hall, to the wonderfully brave if rather less than efficient rescue of Pike from a minefield, the Walmington-on-Sea Home Guard, aided and abetted by the petty ARP wardens and the bluff Captain Square, put together a real gem of sitcom which has endured for more than 35 years. Thirteen glorious episodes, without a bad apple, represents more episodes than the entire output of that other 70s classic, Fawlty Towers. The screenplay is usual excellent (much of it either adapted or invented during filming by the more forgetful members of the cast) while the acting never falls short of perfection. The feature on James Beck is better done than the one on Arnold Ridley, but it remains effectively the only extra. But don't buy it for that. Buy it because anyone who loves comedy simply cannot pass this up.

What is there to say about this wonderful series that has not already been said? It really does deserve the adjective 'classic'. By this fourth series, the cast were well into their stride, and every character had been beautifully developed - the whinging Pike, the pompous, yet occasionally endearing and sometimes admirable, Captain Mainwaring, dear Private Godfrey (the wonderful Arnold Ridley, writer of The Ghost Train, another great classic), and the smooth laid-back Sgt Wilson - every character is terrific and believable.

This series is the one that includes the absolutely unforgettable episode where Mainwaring gets drunk with fellow officers, and toasts the health of 'Cardinal Puff'. Arthur Lowe was surely one of the finest stage drunks ever!

By S J Buck TOP 500 REVIEWER on 30 Nov. 2006
Format: DVD
Dads Army is an absolutely classic British sitcom from the late 60's and 1970's. This DVD has series 4 which dates from 1970, has 13 episodes and is undoubtably one of the very best they did.

The main joy for me watching these again is the marvellous interaction between Captain Mainwaring (Arthur Lowe) and Sgt Wilson (John Le Mesurier). Both men used there own personality traits to provide the continual simmering dislike of each other. So while Mainwaring is brusque and pompous, Wilson is laid-back, cultured and public school educated. The scenes between these two alone justify Dads Army's claim as one of the greatest sitcoms ever.

However when you add in the manic brilliance of Jones (Clive Dunn) and then Pike, Frazer, Godfrey and the rest of the cast you have something very very special.

Perhaps my favourite episode on this DVD is "A. Wilson Manager?" where it appears that Sgt Wilson will get to manage his own Bank Branch - wonderful stuff.

Superb acting and writing - this is some of the best television ever produced. It is amazingly timeless, like the best Laurel and Hardy films. What a joy to have complete series to savour instead of those Best Of compilations. Onwards to Series 5, 6, 7, etc!
