"The wart! Its coming back!"
30 October 2006 | by (Ambrosia) – See all my reviews

Upton and Paul notice that their surgeries are getting decidedly smaller. They have a rival - Audrey Watt - a local widow who claims to be a white witch, and is curing people with ancient remedies. Even Dr.Griffin is receiving treatment from her for his wart.

Paul is horrified to discover that by creeping around her secret laboratory he has invoked an ancient curse. In desperation, he turns to the black arts to try and neutralise Audrey's powers...

Patricia Routledge's 'Audrey' isn't far removed from the spiritualist - Madame Fontana - she played in the classic 'Steptoe & Son' episode 'Seance In A Wet Rag & Bone Yard'. Interestingly, the script seems to infer that Audrey's mystical powers are genuine.

Funniest moment - Paul thinking that he may now be impotent because of the curse. Mollie Sugden, who plays 'Mrs.Mollett', would reappear in 'Doctor In Charge' as the mother of 'Dr.Duncan Waring'.
