TPTV seem to have a season of these on a Sunday Evening.

Last week they had Doctor at Sea and Doctor in Love is on now from 1960.

Such an incredible cast including Michael Craig and Leslie Phillips as the main characters..

Irene Handl playing to her best plus Joan Sims, Liz Frazer and loads of uncredited actors who went on to other things.

Plus of course the incredibly sexy Fenella Fielding.

Lots of comedy cliches from the time but an enjoyable film.

I just read the story about one of the stars Virginia Maskell. Such a sad story.

Is this the same "Hospital" as used in the Carry On films?

The interior hospital scenes in the Carry On films were shot in Pinewood Studios itself. The exterior shots of the hospitals in Doctor and Again Doctor were Maidenhead Town Hall. Matron used Heatherwood Hospital, Ascot and Nurse used Heatherden Hall within the grounds of Pinewood Studios (which was also used for the finishing school for young ladies in Camping).

I am not that familiar with the Doctor films but Maidenhead Town Hall wasn't built until 1962 so couldn't have been used for the earlier films in the series but. on checking IMDB, it would appear that it was used as a filming location in Doctor In Clover ( https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0060321/locations?ref_=tt_dt_loc ) and in Doctor in Distress
( https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0057004/locations?ref_=tt_dt_loc ) but whether as the exterior of the hospital or not I don't know. Quite possibly. The interior shots of the hospital in Clover, as you will see from the above link, was Wexham Park Hospital, Slough.

Vague memories of watching one with Bob Monkhouse. I mean, with him in the film.

I think you're confusing doctors and dentists there!

Yeah, you're right.
Gillian Anderson went to the dentist for an extraction. The tooth is out there.
