Doctor in Clover – 1966 | 97mins | Comedy | Colour


Plot Synopsis

Doctor in Clover

The early instalments of the Doctor series were pretty healthy comedies, but by this sixth visit they are fading fast.

More comical situations at Saint Swithins Hospital, Leslie Phillips is on call in place as Dr Gaston Grimsdyke, who is more interested in the nurses than the patients. Grimsdyke loses his job as medical officer at a women’s prison, so he enrols in a refresher course with his old medical tutor Sir Lancelot Spratt (James Robertson Justice) who is determined to make a successful physician out of him. There are some complications involving a rejuvenation serum, which is accidentally injected into the irascible Sir Lancelot, causing him to wreak havoc at a party.
