"It'll go through him like boiling oil!"
12 November 2006 | by (Ambrosia) – See all my reviews

The morning after a charity event at St.Swithins, Duncan wakes up with a dreadful hangover in a bed in one of the wards. He panics when he realises that the £497 raised - and entrusted to him for safekeeping by Loftus - is missing. Unable to find it, he, along with Dick and Andy, enter an inter-hospital cross-country run, intending to get the money back by betting heavily on Highcross. The only thing he needs to do is ensure now that St. Swithins doesn't win...

'Dad's Army' did a not-dissimilar plot, entitled 'When Did You Last See Your Money?'. The highlight here is, of course, the run itself, as Duncan and the gang endeavor to 'nobble' their own side, using dirty tricks that Dick Dastardly and Muttley would have been proud of. Poor Gascoigne has drunk coffee laced with cascara, which means he has to keep dashing into the bushes every few hundred yards.

Funniest moment - Stuart-Clark steps off the coach, dressed in flat cap, pinstriped suit, and puffing on a big cigar. Loftus shrieks: "Ye Gods! Clark, this is not a ruddy fashion parade!".

Second funniest moment - the sight of Dick, Duncan and Andy on a motorbike.
