Lance Corporal Jones wouldn’t have approved. Victoria Wood crunches the gears of his butcher’s van as she pootles around familiar Norfolk locations for her fabulous 2000 tribute to Croft and Perry’s immortal sitcom. Cast and crew chip in with glorious back-room stories (Bill “Hodges” Pertwee is especially good), and there are tantalising glimpses in home-movie footage of the actors on location.
