The cast has been revealed for the forthcoming series Dad's Army: The Lost Episodes.
Bernard Cribbins will be stepping into the role of mild-mannered Private Godfrey.
The platoon will be completed by David Hayman (Brace in Taboo) as Private Frazer, and Plebs star Tom Rosenthal taking on the part of young Private Pike, immortalised by Ian Lavender in the original series.
Kevin McNally says: "Now look here men, HQ tells me that three episodes of Dad's Army have gone missing. And it has fallen to us to step in and replace them. I have been asked to double for Captain Mainwaring and daunting as that may be, I accept the responsibility and look forward to leading the Walmington-on-Sea Home Guard in three last pushes against the Jerries. I hope you'll join us and enjoy the ride."
Robert Bathurst adds: "I've played soldiers before, but find I handle guns with all the bloodcurdling authority of Sergeant Wilson. I'm looking forward to playing him. I hope we can honour Croft and Perry's lost episodes. It's a celebration of their writing, with understudies."
Dad's Army: The Lost Episodes will air on Gold later in 2019, to celebrate fifty years since the episodes were first broadcast and last seen, before disappearing from the archives. The remakes will use the original scripts, written for the second series of Dad's Army by Jimmy Perry and David Croft.
The three episodes being recreated are The Loneliness Of The Long-Distance Walker, A Stripe For Frazer and Under Fire.
