Michael Upton is cajoled into getting someone to quiz him and Duncan Waring. He is supposed to ask a junior Doctor and ends up asking Professor Loftus. Needless to say they both fail hopelessly and are told to come back at five. Upton is put off by all the food in the canteen and so he and Waring go to the pub and drink three pints of an extra strength cider by the name of appleyard. They return St. Swithin's completely trolled and stumble into a few rooms they shouldn't be in before eventually arriving at their class. Professor Pearson gets them to take part in an experiment on his oxygen machine. Waring messes around drunkenly whilst poor old Upton has to run up and down the stairs a few times. He is not on the machine long before collapsing. They return to the pub where they run into Loftus who orders himself a pint of appleyard cider claiming it a drink for real men. Written by

"I'll have a pint of Appleyard!"
28 January 2009 | by (Ambrosia) – See all my reviews

Professor Loftus gives Duncan and Mike a severed human arm to dissect. Mike finds the job impossible as the very thought of it makes him queasy ( I cannot say I blame him ). Later, at the canteen, he is unable to look at the food ( unappetising it looks too ) much less eat it. Duncan takes him to the pub where they each imbibe three pints of strong Appleyard cider. Returning to St. Swithins legless, they interrupt men putting in a radiator, and make off with their tools. They then terrify a female patient who thinks they intend doing a 'Jack The Ripper' on her...

Anyone who has over-indulged in the joys of cider will know exactly what Duncan and Mike are going through here; that awful feeling of the world spinning round and round like a carousel, an ache in the guts, and a total inability to do even the simplest task successfully.

Peter Greene, who plays 'Young Doctor', would return in later seasons in the more familiar guise of 'The Chaplain' while Joy Stewart, cast as 'The Physiotherapist', is better remembered by fans as 'Sister Fowles'. Martin Miller a.k.a. 'Professor Pearson' - whose lecture Duncan and Mike gatecrash - was 'The Watchmaker' in the 'Its Your Funeral' episode of 'The Prisoner'.

Funniest Moment - Loftus asking Upton how he would deal with a bleeding patient. Mike stands there, frozen. Loftus counts down backwards, then says: "Time's up! The man's dead!". It was the nearest the series got to the famous 'you, what's the bleeding time?' gag.
