On its inception, reviews for the first series were mixed but the gradually grew to becoming one of Britain's most popular sitcoms, with an regular audience of 18 million viewers. The series remains well-known and still garners popularity today.

Dad's Army was set in the fictional south coast seaside town of Walmington-on-Sea, during the Second World War. Alternating moments of gentle character comedy with broad slapstick, it recounted the misadventures of the local voluntary defence force (or 'Home Guard'), consisting of men who are too old or 'unfit' for military service.
