Dad’s Army: Our small part in the making of the hit movie.

Feb 10, 2016 1:24:16 PM / by One2Call posted in Blog, Case Study, Dad's Army, TV, Film


The new Dad’s Army movie has zoomed into the UK Box Office Top 10 after its release last week, and here at One2Call we have a particular interest in this movie due to the very small role we had in its production.

It all started back in October 2014 with a call from a company called ‘DA Productions’ needing phone and internet services for a location in Scarborough.

We get a lot of these calls because of our growing reputation for being able to get on-location offices up and running with phones and broadband very quickly. Usually, though, the production company is named after the production (like ‘Hank Zipzer’ or ‘Happy Valley’, two of the TV productions we’ve helped) so there is no mystery. This ‘DA Productions’ didn’t reveal anything, but we’re professionals, so we didn’t pry!

It was also a pretty usual order – a couple handsets on our flexible cloud-based phone system, with more to follow as the production grew – so we dispatched an engineer up to Scarborough to set them up and thought nothing of it.

The next order wasn’t for more handsets, though, it was for a dedicated broadband line into a hotel room! An unusual request even in our line of work! Apparently one of the ‘stars’ of their new production was an avid football fan and wanted his own broadband connection to keep up to date with the games!

Of course we wondered who it might be, but busy as we are, we didn’t wonder for too long!

It was only when the stellar cast was announced for the new Dad’s Army film, and that filming was due to begin in Scarborough, that we put all the pieces together – ‘DA Productions’ = ‘Dad’s Army Productions’!

We were pretty excited when we realised, and of course, we immediately wondered who the big football fan was, but we still haven’t figured it out!
It’s great that the film is finally out and doing so well, and we can’t wait to go and see it ourselves.

I wonder if we’ll get a credit!
