Storyline

Sir Geoffrey is off to a conference in Rome and asks Duncan to accompany him, giving him the text of the speech he will deliver. Paul, annoyed that Duncan threw him out of an operation for clowning around, steals the paper and hides it in an adult magazine, where it is found by Dick, who tries to exploit the situation to replace Duncan in Rome. The paper is replaced anonymously but gets thrown out with the rubbish. Duncan has offered a reward for its return and the reward goes to the cleaning lady. On the tarmac at the airport Sir Geoffrey checks the contents of his brief-case and the paper blows away. Written by don @ minifie-1

Arrivederci Roma!
4 November 2006 | by (Ambrosia) – See all my reviews

Loftus wants Duncan to accompany him to a surgical conference in Rome, and entrusts him with an important document, the only one of its kind. A jealous Paul steals the paper, hiding it in a men's magazine. Duncan panics, and begins searching the hospital. Dick takes the magazine to his room, not realising it contains the paper. Loftus is so grateful to have it back he tells Dick he can go in Duncan's place...

Remember that 'Blackadder The Third' episode in which Robbie Coltrane played Dr.Samuel Johnson? Well, this is an earlier version of the same idea, and even has a scene where the paper is accidentally thrown out. Shirley Stelfox, the original 'Rose' in 'Keeping Up Appearances', plays Loftus' secretary. Funniest moment - Paul doing a stand-up comedy routine in an operating theatre, resulting in Duncan telling him to leave: "There goes Dr.Doolittle!".
