Carry On Again, Doctor - 1969 | 89 mins | Comedy | Colour
Carry On Again, Doctor was a quick resurrection of the popularity of Carry On Doctor that saw the final Carry On contribution from Jim Dale for over 20 years. Jim Dale is again the romantic lead, chasing after the nurses and catching most of them, while his heart is stolen by delectable model Barbara Windsor. Hattie Jacques recreates her Carry On landmark performance as Matron under the new guise of Miss Soaper, while Harry Locke returns to the fold for his third and final medical burst of innuendo. Kenneth Williams pops up in his familiar guise as the supercilious doctor, although here he initially projects an air of good-humoured understanding. However, as with Tinkle in Carry On Doctor, it is a threat to his position and the prospect of financial assistance to establish his own medical clinic that leads to his intervention in Jim's career.
Charles Hawtrey, in a semi-wicked partnership with Kenneth Williams, initiates the downfall of the rising star of Jim Dale. Eventually the combined efforts of Williams and Hawtrey see Jim shipped off to an exotic medical mission, and the second half of the film opens out the hospital humour to include witchcraft gags, the Westernisation of cockney native Sid James and the comeuppance of the cold-hearted doctor of Williams. Joan Sims, bubbling in the background as a beauty conscious millionaire who is treated by doctor Williams, joins forces with medical genius Jim Dale to establish a weight-reducing establishment, thanks to Sid's mystery mixture. The ever-watchable Jim Dale stages drink induced threats and chats up Barbara Windsor throughout. Jim gets to marry Barbara Windsor, Sid and Kenneth Williams become partners in the roaringly successful weight-reducing clinic and Charlie Hawtrey seems his usual blissful self.
