"Call me Bunty!"
4 November 2006 | by (Ambrosia) – See all my reviews

Upton visits a local girls' school - nicknamed 'the stacks' by Dr.Maxwell - much to Sue's horror. The pupils are precocious young women with crushes on the good-looking doctor. Soon they are chasing him on bikes, undressing in a provocative manner in his clinic, sending him sexy messages, and turning up at the surgery in droves.

Paul decides to exploit the situation so he can have Sue - by replying to the letters. An angry father turns up, demanding to know what Upton's intentions are towards his daughter...

'Doctor Dish' sounds like one of those terrible low-budget British sex comedies of that time ( ironically, Evans himself was in one, called 'Under The Doctor' ).

The schoolgirls are depicted as sex-crazed monsters, one step up from the 'St.Trinians' versions. We're used to seeing nubile young women on television now, but in 1971 it raised a few eyebrows. The late Barbara Mitchell was best known as Frankie Abbott's hypochondriac mother in 'Please, Sir!' and 'The Fenn Street Gang'.

Funniest moment - Upton trying to walk down a corridor lined with girls.
