Barry Evans, best known for his appearance in the Doctor series on the television between 1967 and 1971, plays Jamie the six former delivering groceries on a bike in Stevenage New Town with his mind firmly on the serious matter of losing his virginity. The focus of his attention involves five modern young ladies who are deemed sexually available and ripe for his seductive advances. Advances which become far more urgent when our budding stud finds out that his younger brother has already lost his virginity.

Enjoyable, but corny, the film is based on a novel by Hunter Davis, famous for writing The Beatles first biography. It’s a first person narrative with a direct address to the camera by Barry Evans that is not quite up to standard set by Michael Caine in Alfie released the year before. Great use of colour and its non-London setting makes a real change. It was suggested by certain well known critics at the time of its release that Here We Go Round the Mulberry Bush would hasten the decline of western civilisation, interesting thought?
