Finisham Maternity Hospital where the kindly Matron, panic-stricken surgeon Sir Bernard Cutting and wacky psychiatrist Dr. F.A. Goode rule the roost. It's action stations when Sid Carter leads a team of less than professional crooks intent on stealing a huge hoard of birth control pills...

One of the better Carry On movie, Carry On Matron sees Sid James forcing his son to try to pass himself off as a nurse at Finisham (geddit?) Maternity Hospital. However no one could foresee that he would fall in love with his female room mate (Barbara Windsor).

Are there are some classic comedy moments including Kenneth Williams convinced he is changing sex; Charles Hawtry and Hattie Jacques spending intimate evenings watching their favourite soap opera, and Terry Scott spending his time chasing after the nurses.

Extras include audio commentary with Patsy Rowlands and Jacki Piper; Photo gallery Theatrical trailer; another episode of the very poor TV series Carry On Laughing: And In My Lady's Chamber; and Film trivia notes.

If you don't already own this then it's worth picking up this edition. However, if you own a copy of the standard release then it's not really worth spending an extra £12 for this.
