Pity this second series doesn't have James Beck

I do love this album but I just wish it had Beck in it because both these radio series were done together or back to back i thought so if Beck was in the first radio series it must have been extremely unfortunate timing also for the radio plays.

A nostalgia visit.

These collections bring back memories of my childhood watching television. In fact I'm able to picture each episode as they perform these radio shows up to the point where they've left out certain scenes because the sight gags don't transfer very well. Excellent performances from the cast.

A Masterclass in Comedy

Without doubt one of the best comedy television programs ever created this audio has succeeded where many have failing in being translated into an audiobook. Full of wit, charm and nostalgia Volume Two has continued the high standards set by the first volume and will keep you laughing hour after hour!

brilliant classic comedy

The classic Dad's Army episodes adapted for the radio series are excellent and a great listen. If you have the complete series on DVD you may feel it's all the same but there are subtle differences in some stories. I have the DVD as well but I'm a big fan.
