Storyline

The boys return for their second year, Michael's father having given him a stethoscope and a little blue book in which to write down cases, though it gets stolen. The students are dismayed to find that Professor Loftus will be teaching them for a second year running. He orders Michael to examine Miss Walker, a girl with a lump on her breast, who turns out to be ticklish despite Upton's efforts to warm his hands. After Miss Walker has gone Loftus orders Michael to strip so he can be examined by the others. Written by don @ minifie-1

"Can You Get B.B.C.-2 On That Thing?"
9 June 2007 | by (Ambrosia) – See all my reviews

The second run of 'In The House' was prefaced by repeats of eight episodes of the first, marking the first time the show was seen in colour.

Summer break is over. Upton returns to St. Swithins, sporting the beginnings of a moustache, only to find that his friends have them too. His father has provided him with an expensive stethoscope, as well as a little blue book for making diagnoses. He doesn't have the latter for long however. Someone steals it!

A cracking episode this, signalling the series finally emerging from the movies' shadow and establishing its own identity. Graeme Garden and Bill Oddie wrote every episode of season two ( it was a busy time for them. They had 'The Goodies' waiting in the wings for take off later that year ).

Thankfully, Huw Evans has gone to Portsmouth on a midwifery course, meaning we are spared Martin Shaw's unconvincing Welsh accent and annoying habit of going "Wahey!" at every opportunity. The future 'Doyle' of CI5 was not cut out to do sitcom, and never did one again, although he briefly returned as 'Huw' in an episode of 'Doctor At Large'.

Replacing him is future 'Yes Minister' co-creator Jonathan Lynn as drunken Irish student 'Danny Hooley'. Lynn's Irish accent is no better than Shaw's Welsh one, but at least he looks more at home in a comedy.

Donna Reading is 'Miss Walker', the poor girl whose breasts he has to examine in front of Loftus and the students. 'Monty Python' fans will remember that she played a bimbo in the 'You're No Fun Any More' episode of Season 1.

Funniest moment - Duncan and Upton shaving off their moustaches, only for Dick and Paul to expose theirs as fakes!
