What's on this week or so


Television

Carry On Constable (1960)

Number four and Sid arrives and instantly takes charge. He's a police sergeant whose entire station is down with flu. So he has to take on some trainees: Connor, Hawtrey, Williams and Leslie Phillips. Cue mayhem.

The Mouse That Roared (1959)

Fondly-remembered comedy in which a tiny European duchy declares war on America in order to benefit from aid after they lose. Peter Sellers plays three roles and the whole thing is enjoyable but it's never as good as you think it was.

The Hound of the Baskervilles (1959)

Sherlock Holmes gets the Hammer treatment ("It's ten times the terror in Technicolor!"). Peter Cushing makes a fair Holmes though the production looks cheap and the hound is a bit disappointing.
