Another chance to see the one-off festive edition from 2009. Jim and Barbara have received a gift from their loving children - a large sum of cash to spend however they choose. Barbara has dreams of going abroad, having only been away once before - on honeymoon to Ormskirk - while Jim has his heart set on a satellite HD box. As tension mounts between the couple, a family discussion ensues. Starring Sue Johnston and Ricky Tomlinson, with Caroline Aherne and Craig Cash (who also co-wrote) alongside Jessica Hynes, Peter Martin and Ralf Little.
