"Something Nasty in the Nursery" is not of the better episodes, but it has its moments. Defense secrets are being leaked and it's connected to the organization G.O.N.N. (Guild of Noble Nannies), when grown men containing vital information inexplicably revert to infantile behavior. The evil, machine gun-toting nanny looks like PSYCHO's Norma Bates, and there is an eerie atmosphere to the not so innocent childhood regressions that lifts it out of the ordinary. Dudley Foster ("The Hour That Never Was" and "Wish You Were Here") heads a good cast, with Penelope Keith ("The Murder Market" and "Take Me to Your Leader") receiving credit but not appearing on screen. Paul Eddington, previously seen in "Immortal Clay," and Patrick Newell, previously seen in "The Town of No Return" (and future Mother the final season), would both appear on THE BENNY HILL SHOW during the 70s.
