Storyline

Captain S. Melly takes over as the new Commanding Officer at an experimental mixed sex air defence base. It's 1940 and England is under heavy bombardment, but the crew seem more interested in each other than the enemy planes above. Captain Melly plans to put a stop to all this, and becomes the target of a campaign to abandon his separatist ideals... Written by Simon N. McIntosh-Smith <Simon.N.Smith@cs.cf.ac.uk>

Carry On England
29 March 2000 | by (Budapest, Hungary) – See all my reviews

During WW II., a short but aggressive major tries to regulate an experimental "mixed" military team, consisting of both men and women.

One of the worst in the series that was really at the end of its tether, a dimly unamusing comedy with feeble and well-telegraphed jokes and very uncomfortable cast. An appalling and alarming sign that too many new faces appeared on both sides of the camera, none of which having much fun.
