The plan to reincarnate Dad's Army
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/tvandradio/9674425/Dads-Army-the-movie-to-cast-Mainwaring-as-a-woman.html

I know that Mainwaring was an old woman, but... Shocked

What with that, and the news that Rodney Trotter is to replace Brian Lane in New Tricks, I think the world has truly gone bonkers.

Totally agree, Ron!

The Dad's Army series and original cast remain welded together for ever more and any attempt at reincarnation would fail unless it was going to be a new set of characters in a different location.

I have mixed feelings about Rodney joining New Tricks. Surely he is way too young? Brian Lane is the character I would miss the most. He is a great creation brought to life by a great actor.

There's no reason at all why Nicholas Lyndhurst shouldn't join New Tricks. He has proved that he play other parts besides 'Rodney' (Goodnight Sweetheart; Rock & Chips or whatever that prequel to Only Fools & Horses was called) but, of course, it would have to have a new start, given that all the main characters, bar Dennis Waterman, will have left the cast. I think to carry on as before would be a mistake.

I don't know who thought of remaking Dad's Army but all i can say is "Stupid Boy"

Nicholas Lyndhurst joining New Tricks? I hadn't heard that. Hmmm

Nicholas Lyndhurst may be OK for New Tricks but it will look like a completely different program with Brian & Sandra gone.
I don't mind the new character, Steve but I think in general New Tricks has lost it's spark anyway.

As for a lady Captain Mainwaring, too stupid for words.
