Dick Enjoys The High Life!
30 May 2007 | by (Ambrosia) – See all my reviews

The gang from St.Swithins are at a careers' exhibition, urging future school-leavers to consider taking up medicine. Here they learn that Mike Sherman, head of the Charlemagne hotel chain, is looking for a resident doctor for his London hotel. The pay is good ( £7,000 a year ), there's free accommodation and food, along with a car.

The permanently broke Duncan Waring finds himself competing for the position with MacKenzie.

In the end, neither of them gets the job. It goes to Dick Stuart-Clark...

Gary Waldhorn, better known nowadays as 'David Horton' from 'The Vicar Of Dibley', guests as 'Mike Sherman'. Dick's departure from St.Swithins is not a permanent one. He finds the accommodation seedy, the car is on its last legs, and, worst of all, he is bored and misses his old friends. Of course it never occurs to him to use some of his £7,000 to decorate the place, buy a new car and throw the odd party for his chums. But hey, this is a sitcom we're dealing with here.

Funniest moment - the closing credit scene where Duncan goes to give Dick the kiss of life, only for his friend to suddenly snap awake as soon as he realises what is about to happen!
