We’re Doomed! The Dad’s Army Story :- Watch We’re Doomed! The Dad’s Army Story on YoutubeonFire, New Dad’s Army casts are like buses: you wait ages for one to come along, and then when two turn up at once they don’t like it up ‘em. While it’s never been far from the public consciousness, the sitcom about the Home Guard of Walmington-on-Sea seems to have experienced a surge in popularity over the last few years, with repeats on BBC Two having become a Saturday night staple – only a few weeks ago, it was the programme with the highest Appreciation Index for the whole of a Saturday which included Strictly, The X Factor, I’m A Celeb and the Doctor Who finale. And with the new Dad’s Army film starring Toby Jones and Bill Nighy set for release in February, it’s the perfect time to look back at the show’s origins. We’re Doomed: The Dad’s Army Story chronicles the early days of the writing partnership between Jimmy Perry and David Croft, who would go on to be responsible for some of the BBC’s biggest sitcoms, including It Ain’t Half Hot Mum, Hi-de-Hi and, of course, Dad’s Army. It’s the tale of how Perry, a flamboyant bit-part actor, made the difficult transition from being in front of the camera to behind it. Coming up with his first script, The Fighting Tigers, he found himself paired up with strait-laced comedy producer Croft, and Dad’s Army was born. Not that it was plain sailing; Perry and Croft faced all manner of problems getting the show made, from a channel controller who immediately took against the idea.
