On Television: Dad's Army - Fallen Idol

When the Platoon go away on a training weekend Captain Mainwaring’s (Arthur Lowe) leadership qualities are called into question and put to the test by fellow commanding officers.

Interesting to think that Fallen Idol could have ultimately been the last ever episode of Dad's Army when it was broadcast in 1970. The series was followed up the following year with a film version and no new TV episode would be broadcast until Christmas 1971, (the series was later brought back in 1972).

Fallen Idol  will be broadcast at 19:30 hrs on BBC2 Wales – please check listings for regional variations.
