Its Rag Week at The Duke Of York Hospital, where Maureen works as a nurse. She is chosen as their official Rag Queen, but a gang of loutish students kidnap her before she can be crowned.
Duffy, Frankie and Craven rescue Maureen. However, Duffy's van is stolen by the students. Eric is furious with Frankie as he'd left him in charge of the vehicle.
To make matters worse, the van contained a box in which is a wedding dress intended for Duffy's cousin Deborah. As the clock ticks down to the ceremony, Eric must find the van and retrieve the garment...
A Rowley/Baker penned episode that has a strong 'Doctor In The House' feel to it, what with the anarchic students and infantile pranks. Its not surprising that the writers wrote for 'Doctor At Large' that same year. Its hard to say for sure but the hospital exterior looks like the same one used in that other show.
'Bernard', the leader of the students, is played by future 'Robin Of Sherwood' star Nickolas Grace.
Funniest moment - Frankie leaning against the window of Duffy' s van, only for his hand to pass through it as there is no glass there!
