Doctor Who Vs. Carry On Cowboy

Series stalwarts Sid James (as Johnny Finger), Kenneth Williams (Judge Burke),
Joan Sims (Belle), Charles Hawtrey (Big Heap), and Jim Dale (Marshal P. Knutt) 
all returned for the eleventh instalment 
in the popular Carry On franchise.
Bernard Bresslaw (Little Heap), Peter Butterworth (Doc), and Angela Douglas
(Annie Oakley) all made their series 
debuts here.
After the historical panto that was Carry 
On Cleo, the next title in the run was an

of Fractured Jaw (1958), where Kenneth
