I certainly enjoyed watching it. It helped, of course, that it was an original script unlike the recent film. As long as they don't feel the need to come up with new scripts if this enterprise is viewed as a success.
And I suppose there is no reason that the characters shouldn't be played by different actors as time goes on. That way it continues to present itself to new audiences via different mediums. After all Macbeth has been performed without the original actors several times I believe. And Dad's Army episodes themselves have been performed on stage by many an amateur dramatic society over the years.
The cast itself was pretty good. A view gripes when comparing with the originals - but there's bound to be. I thought Pike was played a little too gormlessly. Frazer & Godfrey didn't have a lot to do but we'll see more of Frazer tonight - and also see what they've done with Hodges, Mrs Pike & Colonel Square.
