Time Out says

A relic from the days of radio spin-offs, this genially rickety comedy features Caldicott and Charters, the two amiable asses from the old boy network - impersonated by Radford and Wayne - who enlivened The Lady Vanishes and Night Train to Munich, then graduated to a radio series. The stock plot has them stranded in an Arabian desert while on a package tour, being mistakenly entrusted with secret information in a Baghdad nightclub, and then pursued all over the place by Nazi agents. Uninspiring stuff, but the patter remains endearingly funny. Rescued from a nasty fate in the desert by a sheik who also proves to be a member of the old boy network and invites them to dinner (sheep's eyes, of course), Wayne remains distraught: 'But we haven't got dinner jackets,' he protests.
