- Norman Hudis was sent to Slough police station for a
week to study police procedure before he started writing Sergeant. But
became to close to the workings of the place, that he told Peter Rogers, that
he could see no comedy in the subject. Peter told him to leave the
subject for a while and come back to it later - which he did.
- Although he wrote the script for Cruising, the idea of
a Carry On Holiday was suggested by Carry On Irregular Eric Barker. His
original idea was for a touring holiday on a coach, but Peter Rogers gave
him the credit anyway. Mind you, the idea was used twice more, in
At Your Convenience and in Abroad.
