Storyline

The crews must all submit to a medical and Stan and Jack think it would be amusing to eavesdrop as Blakey is examined by a brisk lady doctor. However, when he says that his days are numbered Stan assumes that he is terminally ill, becomes extra nice to him and asks him round for tea - which does make him ill. As Stan is about to give Blakey a presentation, the inspector explains. When he said his days were numbered he meant that he was considering retirement but now he is so touched by Stan's kindness that he intends to stay on. Written by don @ minifie-1

The end is nigh...
15 November 2006 | by (Ambrosia) – See all my reviews

The Luxton bus company insists its drivers and conductors must undergo strictly supervised medicals. Blakey's amusement turns to horror when Mr.Stilton points out he must have one too. Stan and Jack eavesdrop on the examination room, and mishear Blakey talking about his impending departure from the company - they think he is terminally ill. A baffled inspector suspects something is up when Stan invites him home for dinner, and turns up for work on time. Then the truth comes out...

'On The Buses'' answer to the Doris Day/Rock Hudson film 'Send Me No Flowers'. Stan's eagerness to regain Blakey's friendship is rather touching, a reminder of past days as seen in 'Stan's Worst Day'. Black comedy this ain't though. Its a little uncomfortable to watch now - Michael Robbins died of cancer in 1992.
