I have all these Doctors' films on DVD ! They make for good watching although they are not as funny as the Carry-ons ! As for today's comedies, they are non-existent compared to these. My favorite character HAS to be James Robertson Justice as Sir Lancelot Spratt ! He's even funnier in "Doctor in Clover". Its a shame that his appearances in these films always seem to be fleeting and over in a jiffy ! I did not know the actor Michael Craig and found his performance the least interesting ! On the other hand I have always loved Leslie Philips and he never fails to give a hilarious performance with his ill-planned sexual adventures ! He's much funnier than Dirk Bogarde who played in some of the initial "Doctor" films. Fenella Fielding is a character on her own as is Nicholas Parsons ! There are some lovely ladies in the film, including Virginia Maskell and I was most distressed to discover that two of the most beautiful actually committed suicide in real life during the years following the film. Very "early sixties", this film also serves as a documentary record of what is henceforth turning into our distant past .............
