Trollied Christmas Special

Radio Times
Review by:
David Brown

A lot of seasonal sitcoms make the mistake of filming in some exotic location that fails to add to the levels of laughter. Think One Foot in the Algarve or that Only Fools and Horses set in Miami. Not Trollied – thankfully, the furthest the staff get in this one-hour special is Wigan, following the theft of essential supplies by a rival Valco store. Gavin leads a rescue attempt in an HGV and encounters some surprises.

Viewers would be best advised to save their gasps, though, for the staff party, in which Lisa takes dirty dancing to a whole new level of filth, while Colin offers up a karaoke rendition of Wham’s Last Christmas filled with raw emotion.

About this programme

It's Christmas Eve, the busiest day of the year at Valco - and panic sets in when the turkey delivery fails to arrive. Gavin and Julie suspect their rivals at the Wigan branch of foul play and take extreme measures to salvage their stock. However, the staff have a big party to look forward to - where Julie suffers a wardrobe malfunction and the alcohol finally brings Kieran and Katie closer together. Festive episode from 2012, starring Jane Horrocks, Jason Watkins and Mark Addy, with a guest appearance from Warren Clarke.
