Rocking those operating rooms
14 December 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Big screen and small screen medical dramas get their dose of satire from the Carry On troupe in Carry On Doctor. Usually those are solemn and serious when performed but none when this crowd does it.

Young Dr. Kilmore played by Jim Dale is an earnest well meaning sort of doctor even if he is a bit of a klutz. The patients in the ward like him even if the higher ups in the hospital don't. They include the head doctor Kenneth Williams and the head nurse Hattie Jacques. When a series of colossal and hysterically funny accidents put Dale on the hospital roof looking like he's enjoying a little slap and tickle with a patient, that's enough to get him fired.

Those patients though consisting of folks like Sid James, Frankie Howerd, and Charles Hawtrey aren't about to lose their favorite doctor. He's valuable to them like Captain Parmenter was to Sergeant O'Rourke on F Troop. Things get righted in their universe with a lot of laughs along the way and many jokes about bodily secretions.

Howerd's got some good moments as a motivational speaker who believes that doctors are superfluous until a big fall on his derrière lands him in hospital. Even funnier is Hawtrey as a man going through sympathetic labor pains with his wife on the birth of their first child.

You'll never watch St. Elsewhere with quite the same view again after seeing Carry On Doctor.
