The first new Carry On movie in 25 years, Carry on Doctors, is to address the ongoing crisis in the NHS.

Producer Jonathan Sothcott told the Mirror that a sense of social realism would be vital to recreating the long-running saga for the 21st century. “The NHS is the best thing in the world. But it’s also something that we British love to grumble about – we will be addressing the crisis,” he said.

Carry On films set for big screen revival

19 May 2016 1:27 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The classic British comedy franchise Carry On is set for a big screen return, with producer Jonathan Sothcott of Hereford Films announcing that two new films will go into production in Carry On Doctors and Carry On Campus.

“[They won’t be] a remake or an attempt to reinvent the wheel,” states Sothcott. “We won’t be trying to find new Sids or Kenneths – we’re looking to create a whole new ensemble of brilliant British comedic actors. No stunt casting. No big American stars. This will be British film at its best, as the truly remarkable heritage deserves.”

The first movie to go into production will be Carry On Doctors, which is being written by Susan Nickson and Tim Dawson (Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps).

The Carry On series launched in 1958 with Carry On Sergeant, and saw a further twenty-nine releases through 1978 before the final outing, Carry On Columbus, »

Producers on lookout for fresh homegrown talent as Carry On Doctors kicks off a revival of the long-running comedy series

The first Carry On movie in 25 years, Carry On Doctors, is to be released in cinemas as part of a revival of the long-running British comedy series, according to Variety.

The new instalment will be the first in a slate of new films, with producers hoping to recruit a fresh ensemble of homegrown talent to star in them. The debut instalment, not to be confused with 1968’s Carry On Doctor, will be written by Tim Dawson and Susan Nickson, best known as the writers of the BBC sitcom Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps.

Carry On movies set to be revived

Plans are afoot for two new Carry On movies, the first of which will arrive 25 years after the last.

Carry On Columbus was, to date, the swansong of the series, released in 1992 to little fanfare and even less acclaim. Even the box office didn’t measure up, pretty much killing the series stone dead.

Well, until now. Production is due to start later this year on a pair of new Carry On films. There’s Carry On Doctors and Carry On Campus, neither of which will feature any of the original stars of the movies (Jim Dale and Barbara Windsor are amongst the surviving names).

Tim Dawson and Susan Nickson, the pair behind Two Pints Of Lager, are penning the screenplays. The idea is to give the series a fresh start, but to keep “the old cheekiness of the past films”. A Carry On Cinematic Universe (Cocu), perhaps? »
