One of my personal favorites:

And this may be cheating, but my favorite credits sequence will always be this.

Cool! How did you do the tiny images post? 
You just play with the pixels in the code. :)

Personally this is my favorite version of the theme:

I like imagining what sort of story would accompany that theme.

Something for when Danny John-Jules takes over as the 11th doctor ;)

I like a nice Home Guard Comedy myself :)

[yt=425,350]VKsMrKVxPiQ[/yt]

Jimmy Perry wrote this for the show but it's so good a pastiche of songs from WWII, and it being sung by Bud Flanagan probably helps, that I've seen it turn up on loads of nostalgia cds of "songs from the war"

Oh and I can't find the actual version from the TV show but here is a variation on the theme from Mulberry

And, while we're on WWII...

[yt=425,350]zJfSI4cKWLY[/yt]

Cos who doesn't love a good POW comedy?

You know, people knock that show with that kind of comment....but I grew up watching it.  And while it showed on occasion why WWII had to be fought , it also showed that there were German people who were nothing like the Nazis.  But they were caught up in this thing they wanted no part of and so they either went through the motions (like Schultz and Klink, if you think about it) or formed a resistance (the townspeople the POWs worked with).  It didn't paint the Germans with a broad brush.

Because, yeah the Allies kicked the Nazis butts but they had a lot of help by people inside doing sabotage and passive resistance.  This show kind of highlighted that in a subtile way.

And I notice no one gets as upset about "'Allo, 'Allo" when that is set in Occupied France....all those "cowards" kissing up to the Germans.   ;)
