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!
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!
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.
