Robert Bathurst did a number of dramas, mainly Poirot type thingy's. He's good.
Then of course there's Mr Cribbins, been in everything :)
Robert Bathurst is in Cold Feet, Tom Rosenthal is in the great Friday Night Dinner, Kevin Eldon has been in so many things like Game of Thrones and also countless comedy shows supporting various comedians who have a series such as Miranda Hart, Simon Pegg/Nick Frost , Harry Enfield/Paul Whitehurst very much the same for Kevin McNally who has been in loads of things but I am sure I am not alone with the sentiment "Don't make them !!!"

If it as bad as the first remake why bother.
P.S. I am a member of the Dads Army Appreciation Society and seems most have the same opinion as mine on the first one.
I cannot recall of any remakes of anything have lived up to the originals.
Adding this because there is a bit of an Army theme through this thread . I have just watched Spike Milligan's Interview show on Gold [again] its just so funny and there are areas of such sadness and pathos however, its a funny part I want to explore. In an interview with Wogan [accompanied by fellow guest Peter Ustinov ] Wogan asks did Army life change him to which Spike replied aside from comradeship he learned nothing . He had a drill Sergeant who barked orders [probably like all Drill Sergeants] on how to present arms , march etc and Spike said he never understood a bloody word he was saying and then gives an absolutely hilarious rendition of the Sergeant which just creased me up.

I was wondering if there are an ex servicemen/women amongst the members and whether there experiences included an encounter with said drill sergeant and whether or not they were of the same ilk and understood absolutely nothing they said , thank you in advance for any thoughts.
