Inept schoolmaster William Potts (Will Hay: Oh, Mr Porter!, The Black Sheep of Whitehall) is mistaken for a Nazi spy by British Intelligence. When the real spy is captured, Potts is sent to Germany in his place to intercept plans for a new Nazi secret weapon being thought up by inebriate Professor Hoffman (Frank Pettingell: The Remarkable Mr Kipps). Upon his arrival Potts takes charge of a group of trainee spies and, in his own unorthodox fashion, teaches them the manners and customs of the British. Among the young spies are three pro-British Austrians (Charles Hawtrey: Carry On Films, Peter Ustinov: Poirot: Death on the Nile & Barry Morse: The Fugitive TV series), who question Potts’s true motives yet »
