Doctor at Sea was the second in the British series of comedy films based on the "Doctor" novels by Richard Gordon. Dirk Bogarde is back as physician Simon Sparrow, with James Robertson-Justice (who played Sir Lancelot Spratt in 1954's Doctor in the House), showing up as yet another blustery authority figure, this one named Captain Hogg. Sparrow has been appointed a navy doctor on a ship with hundreds of men and two women. One of the ladies is played by Brigitte Bardot, meaning that the film affords plenty of opportunity for the "Doctor" series' usual quota of double-entendre laugh lines. Dirk Bogarde made one final appearance as the hapless Sparrow in 1957's Doctor at Large.
