.Set in institutions of various types, the bungling protagonists usually fail, then eventually triumph in the face of some adversity.^ At heart both types of comedies are concerned with the problem of how different people with varying individual desires cope with restrictive social institutions, conventions and morals.

.The phrase "Carry on, Sergeant" was commonly used by a British officer telling a sergeant or other NCO to continue with his duties, and it was indeed so used several times in the first film.^ After using National Service as a backdrop for the first entry, Carry On Sergeant (1958), Rogers , Thomas and writer Norman Hudis moved on to other recognisable institutions in the various follow-ups, including the medical profession in Carry On Nurse (1959), the police force in Carry On Constable (1959) and education in Carry On Teacher (1959).

Classic Carry On

.In 1963 Talbot Rothwell took over the role of screenwriter.^ The switch to parody was associated with Talbot Rothwell, who took over from Hudis as scriptwriter in 1963 and stayed almost to the end.

^ Talbot Rothwell took over as screenwriter with Carry On Cabby (1963), which immediately saw a ratcheting up of the sexual politics that helped bring the lecherous persona of Sid James to the forefront of the series.

.The settings became more ambitious, often parodying well-known films or genres.^ The "sacred texts" of institutions and social and sexual mores that the Carry On films "bring down to earth" are often sent up by references to the body and its functions.

    Early roles were rather strait-laced, he then sometimes played his snide character: quite slimy and smarmy with a distinctive nasal voice. Later the haughty, proud and easily outraged character became more frequent and Williams' best-known character type. .Williams sometimes played characters of other nationalities, such as in Up the Khyber.^ Of course there were a couple of exceptions - Carry On Cleo and Carry On Up the Khyber are both classics - but most of the others were dire.
