Dad's Army fan Phill Jupitus selects four of his favourite episodes from the evergreen radio series, starring Arthur Lowe, John Le Mesurier and Clive Dunn. As with other volumes in the Very best episodes range, Jupitus has also written an introductory sleeve note explaining just what makes these four episodes great. As he says, "There are episodes here you will be familiar with and some you may never have heard, but what I can promise is that they are all achingly funny." "The man and the hour" is the first ever episode of the series, in which Mainwaring barks out, "Come on Adolf, we're ready for you!"; "My British buddy" finds Mollie Sugden guest starring as a Walmington inhabitant besotted with the new GIs in town; "Time on my hands" finds a German airman snagged by his parachute on the town hall clock; and in "A soldier's farewell mainwaring dreams" he is Napoleon at Waterloo, with Wilson an elegant Duke of Wellington
