Synopsis

It’s 1944 and the Allies are poised to invade France and finally defeat the German army. Down in Walmington-on-Sea, the Home Guard led by the intrepid Captain Mainwaring are suffering from low morale. When requested to patrol the Dover army base, they have the opportunity to revive their spirits, until a glamorous journalist arrives to chronicle their exploits. Meanwhile, MI5 discover a radio signal has been sent directly to Berlin from Walmington-on-Sea. Is there a spy on the loose? And who will stand up and be counted when the going gets tough? Made with deference to the legendary sitcom, this is an unashamedly old-fashioned take on a lesser chronicled aspect of the Second World War, packing lots of gentle laughs into its modest ambitions.
