    For sure.
    To me, it was precursor to “on the Buses, Benny Hill and the Two Ronnies.

  12. MisterStereo says:

    Pleased -a bit of early British comedy.

  13. MisterStereo says:

    I pity the doctor – lol.
    All he wished for was quiet, but, the chatter by Tony didn’t bother the sleeping colonel -lol
    The gentleman playing the Doctor’s part was really a good actor.

    I think this is one of his better shows of the shows I have previewed so far.
    At this early period in TV programming, this specific episode is “above the fray”. As with many early TV shows in the US and Canada, I wonder if he had a pre-TV radio show in GB.
    IMany who had radio programs , made the leap to TV were better at vocalizing comedy + less able in a “stand-up” environment in front of TV cameras. It is interesting to see how these performers improved after TV was introduced. Lloyd
