Dad’s Army new official trailer reveals Captain Mainwaring’s missus


I grew up watching the popular television comedy series Dad’s Army, and all through the series fans of the show that saw the Home Guard protecting England during the war, never saw Captain Mainwaring’s wife.

However, when it comes to the new Dad’s Army movie, fans will see Captain Mainwaring’s wife in action. A new trailer for the film has now become available, which you can view below, that gives fans the first look at the wife of the Walmington-on-Sea Home Guard leader.

In the new footage we get to see Mrs. Mainwaring, played by Felicity Montagu, leading a platoon of women through their paces as she takes them through marching and first aid drills, and is the first time we have seen Captain Mainwaring’s long-suffering wife on screen.


In Dad’s Army the movie, Toby Jones plays Mainwaring, with Bill Nighy playing Sergeant Wilson, Michael Gambon is Godfrey, Tom Courtney is Lance Corporal Jones, Daniel Mays is Walker, Blake Harrison is Pike, Bill Paterson is Frazer, with Catherine Zeta-Jones, Mark Gatiss, and Sarah Lancashire as Mrs. Pike.

If you were a fan of the classic British sitcom you will be able to check out Dad’s Army when it hits cinema screens on the 5th of February next year in both the UK and USA…enjoy the new footage.
