No Time for Tears


Time Out says

Maybe there's a note of irony in the title, for this children's hospital drama spends nearly all its efforts bathing us in sentimentality of the starchy, received-pronunciation Home Counties kind. Anna Neagle's the all-seeing matron who saves two slum kids from their slovenly mother, while doctor Baker tries out his bedside manner on nurse Syms. Predictable and fairly patronising, but it certainly gives an insight into prevailing health attitudes of the day.
