| Michael Balcon Losing His Touch
This film was presumably one of the last produced by Michael Balcon at Ealing.Maybe it shows just how much he was out of touch with the public that the studios had to close.Remember that only a year or two before the Doctor series had started to great commercial success.Maybe Balcon thought that he could mine the same vein only for a dramatic film.In fact this film resembles "The Lamp Still Burns" right down to the matron's final speech.However as things have advanced 12 years since then the nurses are allowed to marry especially doctors.Everything about this film is too pat and clichéd and by and large the characters are rather uninteresting.In any event ITV was about to start "Emergency Ward 10" which of course would be the beginning of TV obsession with medical dramas.
