Storyline

Doctor in Clover is another 'Doctor' movie, but this time Leslie Phillips is the main doctor in the story, looking for love and romance from the hospital nurses, much to the annoyance of the main Administrator (James Robertson Justice) who wants his doctors to be 100% focussed on the job. Numerous antics follow, with Phillips getting Justice fixed up with the new prim-and-proper Matron (Joan Sims) and his attempted failures to lure the hospital's beauty, the physiotherapist.

Goofs

Whilst Dr Miles Grimsdyke is examining Tatiana Rubikov, alone, Tatiana after sniffing a hankerchief and smelling ether describes Grimsdyke with the words "you kinky thing" then when nurse Halliday enters the examination room a little later she copies Tatiana by also calling Grimsdyke "you kinky thing". How could nurse Halliday have known what grimsdyke had been called as nurse Halliday was not present. See more »

Doctor Jumps The Shark
30 August 2003 | by (Stockton, England) – See all my reviews

The sixth movie in the long-running "Doctor" comedy series sees the format begin to show it's age. The series, which had by now ran for over twelve years has now more or less lost it's direction. In place of Dirk Bogarde's Simon Sparrow we have Leslie Phillips,who does his best with a script which abandons the wit of the earlier movies and replaces it with second-rate slapstick.

Once again James Robertson Justice's Lancalot Spratt is the main reason to watch this movie, but the sub-plot (Spratt clashes with Matron Joan Sims, over his pet parrot)is possibly the weakest of the series and JRJ has all too few scenes.

Compared to the Carry On's which were now hitting their peak, this movie seems jaded, lacking laughs as well as looking cheap. It's watchable enough, thanks to the efforts of the cast, but should have been far funnier.
