Cast of new Dad's Army film announced!

You may have heard that there's a new Dad's Army film in the offing. Well, the cast has just been announced, and it's a great one:

BBC News: Gambon and Courtenay to star in Dad's Army film

Loads of my favourite actors are in there. Bill Nighy as Sgt Wilson is particularly inspired, I think. I haven't seen enough of Toby Jones to judge whether he'll make a good Capt Mainwaring. (The only role of his on IMDb that I can recall is Dobby the House-Elf.) But we'll see. :-)

They look similar to the originals, I just hope they have a good storyline.
