Vicar to "Dad's Army": The Frank Williams Story by Frank Williams
One of the few surviving members of the cast of "Dad's Army" -arguably the most successful TV comedy series of all time - tells his richly entertaining story. In real life, Frank Williams is a committed Anglican, is a member of General Synod and was on the Crown Appointments Committee for many years. This book is peppered with funny anecdotes from the series and guaranteed to appeal to all fans - 20 years on, "Dad's Army" attracts audiences of over 10 million. He is one of the best known faces in television comedy, yet the long-suffering vicar of Walmington-on-Sea is in real life a Christian of deep conviction. Perfectly cast as the eccentric vicar, constantly tetchy at the invasion of his church hall by Captain Mainwaring and the elderly platoon, he appeared in the series throughout its nine-year run and also in many other television and stage dramas. Still in constant demand for public appearances (including at the Queen Mother's 100th birthday celebrations - she was a great fan), Frank takes an affectionate view behind the scenes of "Dad's Army" and the world of show business and reveals his personal journey through faith.
