Carry On Doctor

‘Too much Jim Dale’ is the most searing criticism we can make of this first-of-the-medical-ones-in-colour but in mitigation it does have bags of the excellent Frankie Howerd, in probably his best film role not in a toga, a nicely demented turn by Charles Hawtrey, KW in full on bastard mode, that perennial mark of quality Peter Butterworth, one of those great ‘peasants’ revolt’ tables-turning denouements, and the obligatory top-line Creamcast including Deryck ‘I’m going to tell you how it’s going to be’ Guyler, Dandy ‘moo’ Nichols, BRIAN WILDE, Peter ‘Mowwy’ Jones and of course Dame Marianne Stone.

    One of the better ones if a little heavy with toilet humour even by Carry On standards, with Kenny’s Dr Tinkle, who gets called Poop Face at one point & tortured with an enema. Ironically he was fond at administering these to himself in real life!
