Synopsis

 

Although the plot is practically non-existent, you have Sir Simon DeMontford inspecting the kingdomís castles with Barbara Windsorís male character captive in tow. The dialogue is competent at best and the historic details sketchy to say the least, but the show is pleasing to watch; full of choice star turns from the Carry On clowns that are dripping with wonderfully bad one-liners and stunned facial expressions.

Dave Freeman, the writer, has Barbara Windsor masquerading as a male character yet again, as he does in many of the TV episodes, this time as a French nobleman. But saying that, it does provide a great moment of visual comedy when a bee gets down her armour.

Sid gets all the choice lines, playing it all confident chuckles and weary bemusement. Clad in a huge red hat and bedraggled noblemanís clothes, Sid ambles throughout the action, what little there is, with great double entendres and comic put-downs. Sid even joins in at the end for a brief rendition of Greensleeves.
