When the fighting ends, the fun begins
"Pure pleasure" --The Observer (U.K.)
Seen on public television
As World War II ends, thousands of British soldiers get “demobbed”—demobilized and sent back into civilian life. Among them are Captain Ian Deasey (Griff Rhys Jones, Alas Smith & Jones) and Lance Corporal Dick Dobson (Martin Clunes, Doc Martin). Deasey and Dobson have had a “good war,” much of it spent entertaining the troops with their bawdy stage routines. But after serving four years in the North African desert, they find it hard to adjust to peacetime London and long for the stage lights once more. Soon they’re performing a cabaret act at the Blue Parrot nightclub, but their personal lives may get in the way of their professional ambitions.
Sharp writing and a stellar ensemble cast--including comic great Les Dawson in one of his final roles--round out this nostalgic comedy drama about post-war Britain. Also starring Amanda Redman (New Tricks), Simon Williams (Upstairs, Downstairs), Samantha Janus (Pie in the Sky), and James Faulkner (The Bank Job).

Very disappointed with the "humor" in this series. Only watched the first couple. Definitely not up to regular British standards.Published 27 days ago by Bun
I AM A BIG FAN OF MARTIN CLUNES AND I LOVE MOST OF WHAT HE DOES. THE DOC MARTIN SERIES IS HIS GOLDEN MOMENT AND I HOPE IT NEVER ENDS. THE DEMOB IS GOOD BUT IS NOT MY STYLE. Read morePublished 16 months ago by BILLY.BUMBLER
