Rob Jacobs who plays Corporal Jones, the part made famous by Clive Dunn, said, “Clive was a true TV legend and an inspiration to me. Taking on the role, particularly with the sad news of his death, is even more meaningful.

“I really hope I can do the part justice as a tribute to Clive and his great talent.”
