Fun but flawed
1 September 2009 | by (Nottingham) – See all my reviews

This series of comedies is a priceless addition to the "Carry On" body of work. OK, so we all know that the scripts are patchy. OK, so Talbot Rothwell (the script writer of most of the classic films) had already retired and some of the cast were definitely showing their age, but this remains an important addition to the series and vital footage from the gang from the mid-70's.

If there is a fault with the shows, its that they were possibly too short to develop a proper storyline. And maybe the audience was expecting more than a 20-odd minute show on ITV could possibly deliver. But there are some worthy performances and it was fun seeing Hattie Jacques playing Elizabeth I - a role that could surely have translated into a big screen treatment.

Best watching if you're in a good mood, late at night and after having had a few pints.
