Time Out says

Askey's an incompetent young meteorologist sent to a remote Orkney lighthouse, where he somehow rumbles a Nazi spy ring. This is typical Will Hay and the Crazy Gang territory: chaotic, childish, and much improved by the mugging of Hay's old sidekicks, Marriott and Moffatt. Co-writer Val Guest recycles many of the situations and jokes he patented in Oh, Mr Porter! and The Frozen Limits. Derivative but fun.
