Him & Her

Series 3 - 7. Him & Her: The Christmas Special

Radio Times
Review by:
Claire Webb

Christmas Day is a typically unsophisticated affair in Becky and Steve’s grotty flat. Stolen champagne is sipped out of faded mugs, a half-gobbled turkey lies forgotten on the bed and Laura wields a karaoke machine with malicious intent.

Steve tries to be welcoming when his estranged dad turns up on the doorstep, while Becky swallows her disdain by scoffing any foodstuff to hand. As usual, there’s something lovable about this uncouth couple — and watching their shabby festivities is strangely uplifting.

About this programme

7/7. A surprise visitor turns up at the flat on Christmas Day - Steve's dad Pete, who he has not seen for a year. The mood turns awkward and needs lifting with some festive spirit - but the arrival of Laura and Paul with a karaoke machine fills Becky with dread. Later, father and son share a special moment. Russell Tovey, Christopher Fulford and Sarah Solemani star.
