Carry On Again Doctor trivia

Production was held up by one day when the first take of Jim Dale's trolley-ride down the stairs went wrong, leaving the actor injured and in need of hospital treatment.

Rank lawyers were concerned with various aspects of the film, including plots and character names, for similarity to their other hit comedy series, the Doctor movies. Produced by Peter Rogers's wife, Betty Box and Gerald Thomas's brother Ralph Thomas, the films were based on the books of Richard Gordon, who was at the time also developing them to become a television sitcom with LWT.
