Sherlock Holmes and the sky at night

As is widely known, Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson are keen contributors to the Corridor of Uncertainty.
Of late they have been particularly impressed with Hawke's notable diaries of his epic trek around the Old County Boundary.
They have also, as a matter of co-incidence, been singularly impressed with the current BBC TV programme about the solar system, etc., 'Stargazing Live'.
Thus, it came as little surprise when Holmes and Watson decided to forsake temporarily the comfort of their agreeable quarters at 221B Baker Street to undertake a camping trip in which they they, too, walked the entire Old County Boundary. Following in the footsteps of Hawke, so to speak.
On an especially chilly night the pair were camped on no less a spot than Saddleworth Moor itself. We all know just how cold it has been of late and it can be of no surprise that at approxinately three A.M. Watson awoke, shivvering and nearly numb with cold.
He was aware, though, that Holmes, too, was awake and lying flat on his back, gazing straight up at the heavens in the crisp night sky, the myriad of twinkling stars clearly having his full attention.
Finally, Holmes spoke.
"Well, Watson, what d'ya make of it all then?"
Realising that an erudite reply of a philosophical nature was called for, Watson lay still for a moment, contemplating the awesome magnitude of it all, the immense starlit sky, the mysteries of time, and assessing how best he might try to match the occasion with fine words and deep thought.
"Well, Holmes, astronomically speaking, the Heavens are radiant. Their infinate majesty truly transcends human description.
"Meteorologically, the night is chrystal clear and augurs well for a fine dry day tomorrow, or should I say later today!
"Astrologically, I can see that Orion is in conjunction with UrXXXXXX and, philosophically, there is an infinity that is beyond the understanding of even the greatest minds, even, the greatest detective minds, of our humble existance up there in that mighty galaxy."

Holmes, considered Watson's deep thoughts for a moment, pulling heavily on his calabash, before, replying,

"No, Watson, its elementary, someone has nicked our ****ing tent."

Away in some scrub, Detective Inspector Regan and Detective Sergeant Carter observed the scene.
"Heh,heh, heh, George, serves 'em right. What they ixpect if they cemp sar near the lancashire border, heh, heh, heh.... do me a favour of what.

"Heh, heh, heh, Guv., strike me pink. 'Ere Guv, gives us a chance to arst the quistchin nah. Nah, gints, what 'ave a Welsh opening batsman and a Middlesex spin baahluh got ta do wiv "Carry on Campin", heh, heh, heh. Gin'lemin, its ahver tuh yew......"

Well there was a former Glamorgan opener called S (Steve) James (who now writes for the Telegraph) and S (Sid) James did of course feature in the said film.

However, I cannot think of a Middlesex leggie called Hawtrey, Jacques, Windsor, Williams or Breslaw...

The Middlesex leggie who immediately springs to mind is Bosanquet, the googly inventor, but I can't think of a link to carry on camping. Did his son Reginald have anything to do with it?

Titmus and googlies should be sufficient of a double-entendre for the carry on crew surely?

Just need a connection with Sidebottom and XXXXXXne Wenger for the full set

well that would have to be Jim (Joan) Sims then.

I wonder if our old boy Phil was in anyway related to Hattie from the carry on days?
