Product Description

Product Description

All seven episodes from the sixth series of the BBC wartime comedy classic, about a bumbling platoon of Home Guard soldiers led by the pompous Captain Mainwaring (Arthur Lowe), who are defending the sleepy village of Walmington-on-Sea in the Second World War. In this series, the platoon have to guard some shipwrecked German submariners, get into a fight with some visiting American soldiers, and when Mainwaiting has to go to hospital for a minor operation, Wilson (John Le Mesurier) finds himself in charge. Episodes are: 'The Deadly Attachment'; 'My British Buddy'; 'The Royal Train'; 'We Knows Our Onions'; 'The Honourable Man'; 'Things That Go Bump In the Night'; and 'The Recruit'.

Series 6 was the beginning of the end for Dad's Army. Not only was the length of the series shortened by half (as would happen in later years), but at times the episodes seem lacklustre, a mark perhaps that Dad's Army's appeal had peaked. Certainly, the cast were not getting any younger, a fact that was only confirmed through the loss of James Beck, a vital component in the platoon's front rank and indeed, an accomplished actor.

This said, one cannot be too critical. The episodes are very enjoyable, one of the most delightful being 'We Know Our Onions', featuring a Home Guard training weekend in which Mainwaring and company are pitched against Hodges, an electric fence and an authoritarian officer (a superb performance from Fulton Mackay of Porridge fame).

The transfer of the film to DVD appears to have gone well, with only slight and occasional deterioration in quality and colour. The use of two DVDs for a short series may seem a waste, yet this is surely preferable to a double-sided DVD. In any case, a single DVD would have prevented the inclusion of the feature on John Le Mesurier, which provides a brief insight into his character, and focuses on more than merely his role as Wilson.

This was the last of the great series of Dad's Army. The first four episodes are nearly the equal of those produced in the previous two series, and "The Deadly Attachment" has gone on to be the most enduringly popular Dad's Army of all. But there were already small signs of terminal decay. Only Clive Dunn's increasing confusion and frailty was calculated, as the rest of the veteran cast (old five years earlier) started to feel their ages. The problems were reflected in the audience figures, which fell by a third (from 19 million to about 13 million) and never really recovered. But the platoon still put a brave face on their difficulties, completely failing to guard German prisoners of war, letting a train run away with them, nearly sabotaging the Anglo-American aliance and seeing spats between Wilson and Mainwaring over Wilson's ennoblement. The real shock to the system came in "Things that go Bump in the Night," when James Beck was taken seriously ill (he appears in the outdoor scenes and is notably absent in the studio shoots) and subsequently died. Dad's Army, already beginning to lose way, never really recovered. So enjoy these while you can (although it has to be said that the feature on John le Mesurier is somewhat less than informative) because, while not the end, this series definitely marked the beginning of the end for the greatest sitcom ever made.

Has some of my favourite episodes - obviously The Deadly Attachment is one that tops most people's lists and I enjoy it as much as most but the stories in all the episodes here are as good as ever and the one that must me laugh loudest has to be We know Our Onions; Fulton Mackay was such a great screen presence and he's so great in this, it's a shame they only used him the once.

I do wonder if they trimmed this series right down to six episodes to maintain quality? They certainly did that in my opinion and watching it all back again, I forgot a lot of this - even though I used to watch them very frequently. Even better than I remembered then! :)

Dad's Army is one of my favourite sitcoms ever, but I do think series 6 was the beginning of the decline. While series 3,4 and 5 had roughly 15 episodes each, this series was trimmed down to 7 episodes, indicating that the writers were starting to run out of ideas. This series also marks the last appearances of James Beck as Private Walker, and Dad's Army was never the same without him.

Thankfully, this series still has some great episodes, particularly 'The Deadly Attachment', 'The Royal Train' and 'We Know Our Onions'.

I loved the episodes but am a little disappointed with the layout of this disc set. There are only two episodes on disc 2 and a small featurette. It would have been nice to have included the christmas special to fill it up. Still, some great shows even though now only down to 7 episodes from the last set which had 13.

Format: DVD
Dad's Army was a comedy drama series based around the time of the second world war. The show ran between 1968 and 1977, while the epsiodes in this season were originally transmitted between the 31/10/73 and 12/12/73.

The show followed the adventures or more approporately the misadventures of the Walmington-On-Sea Home Guard who acted as the front line of defence (in their part of England) against enemy invasion.

The DVD comprises of all seven epsiodes spread over two disks. Special features are again very limited but are at least presant, in the form of a photo gallery, and an interview with a cast member, this time around with John Le Mesurier. The picture and sound quality is over all excellent. It is a bit grainy (if that's the technical term) for a brief time in the third epside, but is to be expected with the archive nature of the footage.

This sixth season, while not my fravioute of all produced (you can't beat season eight) is still a fantatic Dad's Army experience. For some people Dad's Army respresents the best of British Comedy, and for the most part I agree completely. It's worth the cost alone for the famous episode "The Deadly Attachement." and the absolutly brillaint "Don't give him your name Pike" scene. The cast are brilliant and constant throughout. Arthur Lowe really seems born to have been Captain Mainwaring. But all of the characters really are just fantatic in creation and realization.

Season six is shorter that the previous seasons (four and five contained thirteen epsidoes, while three contained fourteen.) After this point seasons were shortened (only six epsoides in seasons seven to nine.
