Doctor in Distress | 1963 | Dirk Bogarde, James Robertson Justice

Under the steady hand of Ralph Thomas, who directed the other Doctor… films, Dr Simon Sparrow (Dirk Bogarde) returns to St Swithins as an experienced doctor but he still has a roving eye for the ladies, which soon settles on Delia Mallory (Samantha Eggar).

Once again, Sir Lancelot Spratt (James Robertson Justice) is in residence, but this time as a patient who’s fallen for physiotherapist Iris (Barbara Murray). Will Sparrow’s tips help him win her hand?
