Trivia

This probably would've been the last time that any special guests would appear in the series, since Phil Silvers failed to draw in audiences for Carry on in the Legion (1967), but Frankie Howerd's performance managed to gain the series' mojo back. See more »

When Mr Bigger is being stretchered through some double doors following his X-Ray, he falls off the trolley onto the floor. In the close-up of an agonized Mr Bigger, you can see the pink uniform of the Nurse who later picks up Mr. Bigger. In the next shot, showing the whole corridor, the Nurse appears after the trolley has been wheeled out of the double doors. See more »

"Fairly amusing."
6 April 2004 | by (Poole, Dorset) – See all my reviews

The patients of a suburban town hospital rebel against the registrar Dr Tinkle (Kenneth Williams) and the matron (Hattie Jacques) who got a popular doctor and nurse the sack.

Fairly amusing entry in the series which manages to hold up because it has the charm of an England that never was and the fact that it isn't always hilariously funny dosen't really matter. Frankie Howerd is excellent as the mind over matter charleton who goes around the country persuading people that they don't need medicines or doctors for cash and the ever reliable Syd James also carries the picture with his usual charm this time as a lazy out of work good for nothing who fakes illness just so that he can stay in hospital. Dandy Nichols also turns up as Syd's nagging wife in a funny moment where he listens to the hospital radio while pretending to listen to his wife's constant nagging and she's too busy having a go at him to notice.
