Carry On Abroad

“Ah, Mr. Farkyharse!” Yep, it’s the unfairly-maligned ‘satirical’ package holiday from hell routine, with wet cement, hot zoops, backless wardrobes, floods, ‘love potions’ and great performances from Peter Butterworth and Hattie Jacques as the staff (aided by Ray ‘Benn’ Brooks). Charles Hawtrey character name of the week: Eustace Tuttle. Non-regulars include June ‘I tried it once and didn’t like it’ Whitfield, Jimmy ‘Mad Death’ Logan, Carol ‘Kerril’ Hawkins and Patsy ‘wedge open a fire door’ Rowlands. And never fear, Jack Douglas is on hand with an unsteady pint at Sid’s pub for the finale.
