Storyline

Michael and Paul go to work with Dr. Maxwell, an ex-Army type, whose pretty daughter Sue acts as his receptionist. Unfortunately many of the patients, including the mouthy Mrs. Baxter, refuse to be seen by Michael, whom they consider too young to be a proper doctor. Cunning Dr. Maxwell pretends to have a bout of malaria which Michael 'cures' in Mrs. Baxter's presence, thus reversing the patients' opinion of him. Written by don @ minifie-1

"I want to see the Major!"
3 November 2006 | by (Ambrosia) – See all my reviews

Upton and Paul join Dr.Maxwell's practice, located in a shabby part of London. The retired army major has a beautiful daughter ( Zsuzonga, whom everyone calls Sue ) to whom Mike is instantly attracted. But Maxwell's patients, including a small boy, think that because Upton is young he isn't sufficiently qualified, and refuse his treatment. But the wily Maxwell comes up with a plan to get them to accept him...

Arthur Lowe makes his debut as 'Dr.Maxwell', a gentler, less pompous version of 'Captain Mainwaring', with the delectable Madeline Smith ( who seems to have been in every British comedy series of the '70's ) as his receptionist/daughter.

This episode is an attack on ageism; Upton's youth is considered a handicap by older patients who prefer the firm touch of experience to youthful energy.

Funniest moment - Mrs.Baxter telling Upton that her urinary incontinence is due to there being 'a maggot in her kidneys' which got there from an apple she ate when she was a little girl!
