From the creator of "Dad's Army" comes the wonderfully written and evocative tale of the life and adventures that inspired the hit TV shows he would go on to create. Highly entertaining and funny, "A Stupid Boy" gives fascinating insights into Perry's "Dad's Army" and his other much loved British comedies including "It Ain't Half Hot", "Mum and Hi-De-Hi!": the real-life individuals who inspired the characters and events, and behind-the-scenes stories - including how "Dad's Army" came about, and how it was very nearly dropped, never to appear on our screens.
