Carry On Up the Khyber

“Mad! They’re all stark staring mad!” “Why have I been interrupted mid-tiffin?” “Rank stupidity!” “Fakir! Off!” Somewhere in the top five ‘Ons, without doubt – a shade above Cleo, clearly better written than Camping, but not as much fun as Screaming (and we’ll refrain from banging on about Cabby just this once). Extra-curricular turns from Roy Castle, Angela ‘Digby’ Douglas, Cardew ‘The Cad’ Robinson, Johnny Briggs, John ‘Mallens’ Hallam, Wanda ‘UFO’ Ventham, Valerie ‘It Might as Well be String’ Leon, plus a narration from good old Patrick ‘Air attack warning’ Allen.

    Good production values.
    Promoting the myth of British ‘ stiff upper lip’ abroad!
