Review

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Peter Rogers and his wife Betty Box seem to have had an obsession with medical matters. She produced the popular Doctor series, while he was responsible for four hospital-based Carry Ons and this charming comedy that reunited him with Juliet Mills, who had played a nurse in the previous year's Twice round the Daffodils. As it was scripted by Norman Hudis and directed by Gerald Thomas, both of whom were Carry On regulars, it has its moments of broad humour, but old-fashioned family fun is to the fore as district nurse Mills encounters a range of eccentrics in a conservative farming village. Noel Purcell and Raymond Huntley provide stand-out support, with help from Carry On rep members Joan Sims and Jim Dale.
