New Zealand Premiere

Wednesday 13 November 8.30pm Channel 008

In addition to being a massive hit with JONES! viewers, hit comedy Dad’s Army was one of Britain’s most successful sitcoms ever; at its peak, it attracted 18 million viewers every Saturday night and to this day, over 40 years later, continues to command an audience of millions around the world.

WE’RE DOOMED!: THE DAD’S ARMY STORY is the dramatised story of how the show’s creators, Jimmy Perry and David Croft, overcame BBC management scepticism, focus groups and cast constipation to get the much-loved series on air.

Revealing the personal clashes and production problems that put the show’s existence in jeopardy, this affectionate and witty film is a true love letter to British creativity – and a perfect way to cap off our run through all ten seasons of the hit series.

WE’RE DOOMED!: THE DAD’S ARMY STORY is directed by Steven Bendelack (The Royle Family), and stars Paul Ritter (Chernobyl), Richard Dormer (Game Of Thrones), Stuart McQuarrie (Silent Witness), Sarah Alexander (Green Wing), Sally Phillips (Veep), Harry Peacock (Porridge) and Keith Allen (Making Out).
