First image of Dad’s Army: The Lost Episodes on Gold cast released as Timothy West joins cast.
UKTV channel Gold have released the first image of the cast from Dad’s Army: The Lost Episodes.
It comes as legendary actor Timothy West CBE (Brass, Toast of London) joins the cast as the incredibly kind Private Godfrey in Gold’s upcoming remake of Dad’s Army: The Lost Episodes.
West said: “It is a special pleasure for me to be taking over Godfrey from Arnold Ridley who, coincidently, wrote The Ghost Train, the play in which my parents met.”
The full platoon consists of Kevin R. McNally as Captain Mainwaring, Robert Bathurst as Sergeant Wilson, Kevin Eldon as Lance Corporal Jones, Mathew Horne as Private Walker, David Hayman as Private Frazer and Tom Rosenthal as Pike.
West will be stepping into the role after original cast member Bernard Cribbins sadly had to step down from the production for personal reasons.
The three episodes being recreated for Gold are from the original second series and titled The Loneliness of the Long-Distance Walker, A Stripe for Frazer and Under Fire. Dad’s Army: The Lost Episodes will use the original scripts written by Jimmy Perry and David Croft.
Dad’s Army: The Lost Episodes will air on Gold later this year.
