Storyline

The ward annual entertainment show is due and the Dean wants it to be good, clean fun. Mike's brother Terry, a very camp ballet dancer, takes charge, recruiting three Christian boys to sing 'We Three Kings' and two female ballet dancers, both of whom do their stuff for the patients. However, the show is stolen by Duncan and company in drag performing saucy songs and the patients tell the - unknowing - Dean that they thoroughly enjoyed it. Written by don @ minifie-1

"We three kings of Orient are..."
1 March 2009 | by (Ambrosia) – See all my reviews

The students' entertainment committee plan to put on a show, which naturally means strippers. But the Dean takes an interest and advises them to 'keep it clean'. So the strippers are out.

Mike sends for his brother Terry, a theatrical producer camper than a row of tents. The first people to audition are a trio of Christian Union men, who sing 'We Three Kings Of Orient Are' despite it not being Christmas. Next up are two nurses performing ballet ( badly ). Terry tries to get them to do a number from 'West Side Story' instead. It does not work out. Duncan insults Terry and he storms off, hence the students are left with little option but to drag up...

Very funny Garden/Oddie episode, with the late Barry Justice camping it up wonderfully as 'Terry Upton', who appears to have wandered out of Mel Brooks' 'The Producers'. Adam Verney returns as the 'Christian Union' man last seen in 'Settling In'. Here he is named as 'Kenneth', and would reprise the role in the second season's 'May The Best Man Win'. A young Mike Grady plays his sidekick 'Patrick'.

Funniest moment - Collier, Evans and Briddock in drag doing a Beverley Sisters impersonation for the patients' amusement.
