Dad’s Amy to make TV comeback with three new episodes ‘starring Danny Dyer’

Dad’s Army is set to make a TV comeback after 50 years with three brand new episodes.

It’s thought the new eps will be made using lost episodes from 1969 and will feature an A-list cast.

Bosses at satellite channel Gold are currently entering in discussions on who who will play the much-loved characters for a 2019 reboot with a list of high profile names on their wishlist.

According to the Daily Star , David Jason is rumoured as a potential to star as Captain George Mainwaring and Hugh Laurie to play Sergeant Arthur Wilson.

While EastEnders favourite Danny Dyer has been suggested for Private Joe Walker.

Producers are also said to be wanting Ian Lavender, 72, who first played the much-loved Private Pike, to join the cast.

The episodes set for a reboot are The Loneliness Of The Long Distance Walker, Stripe For Frazer and Under Fire.

Original writers Jimmy Perry and David Croft have reportedly given their blessing for three episodes to go ahead with a new cast.

Gold boss Pete Thornton told the Daily Star: “We’ve been working on this project for several years and will be respecting the genius of the original series.

"If ever there was a time to ‘stick to the script’ then this is it."
