My Family Christmas Special: The Heart of Christmas

About this programme

The Harpers are looking forward to another Christmas - except for Scrooge-like dad Ben, who this year comes up with a cunning plan, feigning a mystery illness to escape the festivities. Susan is unconvinced, but nonetheless drags him to the doctor, who admits the grumpy dentist to hospital. With him out of the way, son Michael and lodger Alfie organise a last-minute party, while Janey is too busy trying to get the must-have toy for Kenzo, whether he wants it or not. But the party atmosphere is dampened somewhat by news from the hospital - Ben's test results are back and he needs surgery. Festive special of the comedy from 2006, starring Robert Lindsay and Zoe Wanamaker.
