Steve Bendelack’s New Film Airing Christmas Day

Everyone with access to BBC2 be sure and tune in Christmas Day as well as Boxing Day for Steve Bendelack’s latest hour-long made for TV film, We’re Doomed! The Dad’s Army Story. To this day Dad’s Army is still one of BBC2’s highest-rated shows 40 years after it was first on air and We’re Doomed! tells of the nightmare that was putting it together. The Guardian is calling We’re Doomed! a drama. Independent UK is calling it a comedy. Radio Times is just trying to figure out if it’s AM or FM and Steve Bendelack is just calling it good (we’re inclined to agree with the latter). Definitely check this film out if for no other reason than seeing Shane Richie in army fatigues.
