5.0 out of 5 stars One of the funniest in the 'Doctor' series!, 5 Aug 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Doctor In Distress [DVD] (DVD)
One of the funniest movies from the 'Doctor' series.

This one opens with a scene that will have you in stitches immediately as it opens with Peter Butterworth as an Ambulance driver giving an hilarious performance!

Many other names in this give outstanding performances too - among the ones in particular are; Donald Houston, James Robertson Justice, Leo McKern, Finella Fielding, the aforementioned, Peter Butterworth and Jessie Evans - one of Britain's finest character actresses. Jessie's scenes are all too short - oh but how memorable and funny they are! The one in the Hospital bed is particularly rib-tickling, and she consequently steals the whole show at that point. James Robertson Justice is as 'feisty' as ever. (sadly, none of these great actors can ever be replaced...)

Other outstandingly funny moments include Finella Fielding as a rather 'cranky' and uptight spinster-ish lady on a train that will have you feeling your funny bones in minutes too!

Also has a guest appearance of Ann Lynn in a particularly sad and touching scene within this kind of comedy, as a rather 'tragic' figure (but beautiful as always) who doesn't have long to live, and has a neglecting husband to make things even worse. Both she and her scenes seem distinctly out of place here - yet her final scene is simply captivating, and will delight fans.

There's another guest appearance in Dennis Price (still looking good before his personal problems took their toll on his image) as a rather 'racy' boss who's involved with a young and rather 'saucy' Amanda Barrie!

Includes so many numerous other familiar faces you will lose count!

A great movie at this ridiculously low price!
