After reading Colby's latest T & A "doom" (where is the investment you promised Colby and co!).

Thought this guy reminds me of someone "Private Frazer" from Dad's Army (showing my age now lol)

So just for fun and no offence intended!!! (the situation is far from funny) but the "BoD's" IMO do nothing to improve their image.

So googled Dad's Army (and with a little editing) found this:

Main platoon members

Captain George Mainwaring Alias: Chris Caisley
Mainwaring appointed himself leader of his town's contingent of Local Defence Volunteers. He did, serve in France, "during the whole of 1919—somebody had to clear up the mess."

Sergeant Arthur Wilson Alias: ??
Mainwaring's inferior in the bank and on parade; his suave, understated social superiority, public school education and handsome looks led to a certain amount of jealousy on Mainwaring's part.

Lance-Corporal Jack Jones Alias: Rowand Agar
Jones was the oldest member of the platoon (born 1870), but was played by Clive Dunn, a younger actor. Jones was an old. He has a story for every occasion, and will never hesitate in telling it, regardless of how long-winded or irrelevant it is. Despite being the oldest member of the platoon, Jones demonstrates an almost boyish enthusiasm for combat and is the first to volunteer for anything, no matter how ill-advised that may be.

Private Joe Walker Alias: P & A Partnership
Walker was the only fit, able-bodied man of military age in Walmington-on-Sea's home guard. Mainwaring often turned a blind eye to his profiteering as he could sometimes supply the platoon (and Mainwaring) with useful items. On more than one occasion, Walker's willingness to use underhand tactics allowed Mainwaring's platoon to triumph over rivals in the Home Guard, Army and ARP.

Private Frank Pike Alias:
He has the lowest position at Swallow bank, subordinate to both Wilson and Mainwaring.

Private James Frazer Alias: Colby (we’re doomed)
Frazer was tight with money, had wild staring eyes, and was known for issuing regular pronouncements of doom. In the early episodes Frazer was the keeper of a philately shop, but by series four the writers had decided that he should become the local undertaker, in keeping with his gloomy nature. Openly eager for more power within the platoon, he sometimes led rebellions against Manwaring though for the most part he was loyal and well-intentioned.

Private Charles Godfrey Alias: Tordoff
He was very loyal to Captain Mainwaring, except on one occasion when he took part in a plot to make Mainwaring's feet hurt.

Wilson is clearly Peter Hood

If we are going down the comedy route, we could say that Hood and Bennett are Del and Rodney Trotter - "This time next year bruv, we'll be millionaires"

Or Caisley is Basil Fawlty!
Never liked Kevin Costner, or any other Robbing Hood!!!!

I think the cast from the still excellent Yes Minister/Yes Prime Minister is more apt -

Coulby - the bungling minister James "Jim" Hacker
Caisley - the scheming manipulative Sir Humphrey Appleby
Duckett - the split loyalty Bernard Woolley, never knowing which master to serve!

The whole thing is too farsical to ever be a tv series. Noone would believe it.
I'll be the first to admit this is a bright but haunted age.

Peter Hood as Richard Briers it's Ever Decreasing Circles definitely not The Good Life.
