Although many would beg to differ but I actually find Carry On Again Doctor (1969) to be even better than it's predecessor, Doctor (1967) and perharps is the best of the medical Carry On films. Although it's plot is typically thin it still holds very well. The plot is of a doctor who is sent to the Beatific Islands on a medical mission in which he discovers a slimming potion. The film starts off as looking like it was to be restricted to hospital and it's patients again, but surprisingly there are many turns to the plot. Jim Dale is fantastic as Dr.Nookey, who is typically accident-prone. He also impressivley performs the stunts for the film and does a spectacular job in doing so. Sid James is not introduced to the film until at least half way through, but his essential contribution is effective regardless. Bubbling in the background are all the familiar favourites such as Joan Sims, who is as loveable as ever, the irreplacable, Hattie Jaques as yet again in the role of the matron (although she takes a calmer, subtle approach to this role and is still effective in doing so), the bubbly Barbara Windsor who sparkles in every scene she is in, Charles Hawtrey who is hilarious in drag and finally Patsy Rolands in a small but essential contribution. All the corny jokes are delivered deliciously by these irreplacable actors and are all on top form, although generally the film is a little less manic than ususal but its pleasurable in doing so. The film develops at a leisurley pace and remains consistently amusing. One of my personal favourites to the series, which in my own opinion ranks up with the greats such as Up The Kyber (1968), Cleo (1965), Camping (1969) and Screaming (1966). Highly recommended.
