Have Faith, Duncan
30 May 2007 | by (Ambrosia) – See all my reviews

Duncan plans on settling down with Kate, and demonstrates to Dick how he intends carrying her over the threshold. Unfortunately, he slips a disc, and is in agony. Dick hurts his leg.

Despite repeated treatment from specialists, the injury shows no sign of healing. To make matters worse, news of how the injury occurred makes the doctors the laughing stock of St.Swithin's.

At his wits' end, Duncan calls on faith healer Mr.Krakow for help...

The 1968 film 'Carry On Doctor' cast Frankie Howerd as a charlatan who boasted of the power of the mind over matter, and its alleged superiority to conventional medicine. This episode has some similarities, except that we don't actually see the faith healer whom Loftus denounces as a 'quack'.

Though back pain is no fun for the sufferer concerned, its hard not to be amused by the spectacle of Robin Nedwell shuffling about like Quasimodo. Dick's leg injury doesn't affect his lifestyle too badly, as he spends most of his time sitting down anyway.

Funniest moment - Duncan and Dick going to the faith healer, in the hope of a miraculous cure for their problems, only to witness his coffin carried out through the front door!
