    They were looked down on in their day, but I think time has been very good to them.

    The Carry Ons were thought of fondly by the public and that's only deepened with time and nostalgia. I think critics and others in the film industry have come to appreciate this and value them on that level as having made a significant contribution to British film history. At the very least they can view them with tongue-in-cheek affection.

    With the benefit of hindsight, the series should have ended with Carry On Dick or at the very latest Behind. Carry On England - the newcomers simply didn't have the same presence as the old hands, and the less said about the Columbus the better.
