The film starred many of the main actors from the TV series but some were replaced; most notably Robin Stewart, who was replaced by Robin Askwith because he had already been booked for the summer season on Bournemouth Pier and could not also appear in the film; however, according to his series co-star Sally Geeson, speaking on commentary track for the Special Edition DVD of Carry On Abroad, Stewart was replaced because Sid James was so tired of his lateness to the set and not learning his lines, though Stewart would return for the remainder of the six series. Another change was the role of Trevor Lewis, played in the film by Peter Butterworth and on television by Anthony Jackson.
