One of my all-time favourite actors, Leslie Phillips, now a venerable eighty-three years old, is to made a CBE in the New Year’s honours list.
Indulge me whilst I recount yet again the line from Carry On Nurse with which he is most often associated…
Attractive Nurse (addressing Phillips): “Doctor Bell?”
Phillips (looking at her lasciviously): “Ding dong!”
A comedy classic.
I have only one quibble: it should have been a knighthood; they have been given out for far less to people far less deserving.
