Carry On Doctor (1968)

Or “Nurse carries on again”. In this sequel to Carry On Nurse, Francis Bigger (Frankie Howerd) is a notorious charlatan who tours the country lecturing on mind over matter.

During one of his performances, he falls off the platform and is taken to the chaotic local hospital.


Matron (Hattie Jacques) romances supercilious Dr Tinkle (Kenneth Williams), Mr Roper (Sid James) smokes under the bedclothes, buxom nurse Sandra May (Barbara Windsor) pops out of her nurse’s uniform, and Frankie Howerd makes his series debut (pictured below).

The popular – though unfortunately named – Dr Kilmore (Jim Dale) is caught on the roof with Sandra May and the two are fired by evil duo Dr Tinkle and Matron. The film ends with the patients revolting (just like the script)

Sid James was genuinely bedridden for much of this production.
