Arise, Sir Leslie...

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.
