Doctors - Pick Your Nurses!

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Waring, Stuart-Clark and Mackenzie come up with the idea of a competition to see who is the best nurse at St. Swithins. There's just one problem - they do not have any prize money.

Dick makes a deal with Nurse Reynolds; in return for fixing the contest in her favour, she will hand back the cheque.

Unfortunately, Duncan and Andy think he is up to his old tricks and talk her out of it. In desperation, Duncan is forced to resort to a spot of female impersonation...

Where would British comedy be without the sight of a man in drag, eh? Here its Robin Nedwell doing the honours, tottering about the place like Frankenstein's monster in make-up. Actually, I wish they had made a bit more out of this situation - it would have been fun to see Waring treated in the cavalier, sexist fashion he normally reserves for women. The only person to get the hots for Duncan in nurse's uniform is the reserved Sir Edmund Steele of Highcross.

A fun episode this, the only one of the 'Doctor' series penned by two women, Gail Renard and Brenda Crankmen.

Our old friend Christopher Biggins crops up yet again, this time as 'Nurse Franklin'.

Funniest moment - Duncan, rushing to the scene of a gas leak, lifts his leg over a length of pipe, and in so doing exposes wrinkled stockings to put Nora Batty's to shame!
