Sexual adventures of a new doctor at a provincial hospital
This standard 70s sex comedy features a train journey at the start of the film, which opens with an excellent panning shot of a Class 55 ‘Deltic’ on an express on the ECML. This is followed by scenes onboard an EMU, possibly a Class 302, and extremely brief drivers-eye views of the entrance and exit to a tunnel. Most of the film was shot in and around Southend-on-Sea, and there is a brief scene outside Westcliff station where a blue-liveried EMU, almost certainly a Class 302, can just be seen departing. Finally, there is a scene towards the end where Nicholas Field and Felicity Devonshire are driving down a dual carriageway in an orange Triumph Spitfire and pass beneath a railway viaduct, the location of which isn’t known. However, we can be sure that it is not around the Southend area where there are no viaducts.
