Kenneth More plays Royal Navy officer Lieutenant Commander ‘Bodger’ Badger – a likeable officer who is just too honest with his opinions.
When his latest feelings about the Royal Navy’s incompetence becomes national news, Bodger is posted to an American ship accompanied by a trio of hapless British cadet midshipmen (Derek Fowlds, Dinsdale Landen and Jeremy Lloyd) from Dartmouth training College.
Watch out for some brief cameos by Sid James, Warren Mitchell, Rodney Bewes, Michael Bentine, Brian Wilde and Dirk Bogarde as Doctor Simon Sparrow, the same character he played in the Doctor series of films.
