Stan gets a little annoyed when his Mum and Sister keep buying expensive items on hire purchase, but the money he earns for overtime working as a bus driver means that he can afford it... just! His job is secure, as bus drivers are hard to come by, and his overtime prospects are good, until the bus company decide to revoke a long standing rule and employ women bus drivers. Aghast at the thought of no overtime and, therefore, less wages, he joins forces with his long time work colleague Jack to sabotage the new female employees. Written by

When the bus pulls away on the motorway after Blakey gets a ticking off from the motorcycle cop, the left hand side of the bus displays a poster saying 'Whitbread Tankard: cool, clear, refreshing.' When it pulls in to the depot, 2 hours late, the left hand side of the bus displays a poster for 'KP nuts: more protein than eggs', although the number plate on the back is the same as the one at the front when it was on the motorway.

Blakey, Stan's Inspector:
Spiders? I don't care if you've got ants in your pants! You get in that cab and pull away quick!

This spin-off from the popular ITV sitcom was the most popular British film of 1971, it's takings even outgrossing Diamonds Are Forever, the James Bond film of that year. Take my word for it, the critics tore it to pieces and they still do now when it's shown on television.
I don't think it's overly funny but I still love it. Okay so it's sexist, but like the Carry On films, even though it's not hilarious it still possesses a certain charm that these overblown American comedies cannot hope to achieve.
All the series regulars are here. Reg Varney, Doris Hare, Anna Karen,Bob Grant and Stephen Lewis. While they were all charming, Michael Robbins stands out for me because his comic timing was impeccable. For example, he would sit there reading the paper and suddenly he would look up and utter something amusing.
