A delight - as expected!

Would you listen to Dad's Army: Complete Radio Series 3 again? Why?

Yes as its endlessly entertaining and provides light relief in a world of stress and awful news stories!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Dad's Army: Complete Radio Series 3?

The court scene when Arthur Lowe is defending his honour - accused of showing a light! He is shown to be a character of inner strength and integrity. Not just as a figure of fun.

Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Very similar and equally enjoyable

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Not really the reaction to Dad's Army -

Any additional comments?

Lovely to be able to hear all the familiar voices again and enjoy the whacky comments and situations they find themselves in.

Forever funny

Would you consider the audio edition of Dad's Army: Complete Radio Series 3 to be better than the print version?

This edition is a great add on to the Dad's Army army. It allowed me to have many of my favourite episodes with me on the move.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Dad's Army: Complete Radio Series 3?

The two original audio epsiodes 'A jumbo sized problem' and 'Ten seconds from now' are particular standouts. They are both well performed, and leave wishing that they had been filmed for the regular series.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

All of it was a joy to listen to. There were no lulls and the inclusion of the first episode of 'It sticks out half a mile' was a treat too.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?


Any additional comments?

Well worth the money, and time invested into listening.
