Third time, not so lucky.
20 July 2013 | by (Hampshire, England) – See all my reviews

With the Carry On gang returning to the medical arena for a third time, it was almost inevitable that the laughs would feel more strained. The script is certainly weaker, with more obvious gags and an over-reliance on puerile slapstick and pratfalls, but the real problem here as far as I am concerned is with the casting, the performers seemingly far less comfortable in their roles this time around.

Jim Dale, who played such a likable physician in Carry On Doctor, struggles as a womanising doctor who takes advantage of others for profit; Charles Hawtrey, so believable as a highly strung patient, is unconvincing as senior house surgeon Doctor Ernest Stoppidge; Babs Windsor is there simply to flash some flesh; and Sid James is wasted as tropical island doctor Gladstone Screwer, a role that feels like an extended cameo.

Meanwhile, Wilfrid Brambell appears in a pointless scene where he gropes a nurse, 70s sexpot Valerie Leon briefly flaunts her cleavage, and Peter Butterworth is demoted to the part of 'Shuffling Patient'. Worst of all, there's no Frankie Howerd or Bernard Bresslaw!

6/10, which is a poor rating from such an avid Carry On fan.
