Col. Robert E. Hogan: [discussing the Crittendon Plan] All I can say, Crittendon, is it better be good.
Colonel Crittendon: Good? It's superb. Imagine the morale boost to those young flying chaps, setting down in dear old England between a carpet of crimson geraniums.
Col. Robert E. Hogan: Geraniums?
Sgt. Andrew Carter: Geraniums?
Colonel Crittendon: Straight from the horror of war. Like coming home to mother's cottage. Tremendous psychological factor there, chaps.
Col. Robert E. Hogan: That's The Crittendon Plan?

The' Crittendon Plan' is not what we expected
26 September 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As we start off season three we get a visit from an old friend, the bumbling British Colonel Crittendon (Bernard Fox). This time London has given Hogan a plan to blow-up a convoy carrying rocket fuel to a secret underground tunnel. They tell Hogan that the plan, aka The Crittendon Plan, is all in the head of the Colonel that is a prisoner in another Stalag. They are to free Crittendon and he will reveal all the activities of the plan.

But London has given then the wrong Crittendon. Our Colonel Crittendon does have a plan but his plan is for planting geraniums along the runways of the British fighter planes. That way it will remind them of home upon return from a raid. Hogan is to meet some underground agents to help in the task but having Colonel Crittendon just might sabotage their own efforts.

As always Bernard Fox is excellent as the clumsy Colonel that always has good intentions but never follows through on any of his capers. Mr Fox makes the entire story more enjoyable with his madcap actions. There are some good scenes in this show as most of the filming is outside the camp which opens up for more situations. It is a nice way to begin the third season with this entertaining episode.
