Lee, Lucy and Daisy spend Christmas in a ramshackle, remote country house once owned by Lee’s now-dead aunt. But it’s a creepy place – a chair rocks by itself, there’s strange music, a locked cellar door and a legend involving an unhappy boy.
Anyone who enjoys
Not Going Out
’s quickfire, you-can-see-them-coming gags and its soft-centred smut will be in heaven. It’s hard to resist such a straightforward, coarsely old-fashioned sitcom and Lee Mack’s immaculate comic timing, despite or possibly even because of the scatalogical gags. Though everything is assiduously telegraphed, just give yourself up to a bit of ribald fun, one that stars the fabulous Geoffrey Whitehead as Lucy’s magnificently austere dad.
Lee wants to create the perfect Christmas for Lucy, so he invites her to spend the holiday in a cosy old country house that used to belong to his dear, dead old aunt - and to make it a proper family get-together, he invites along her parents and dipsy friend Daisy. But the Christmas spirit is in short supply when Lucy discovers that the cottage has not been lived in for years - and it isn't long before they have sensed a spooky presence. Lee Mack, Sally Bretton and Katy Wix star in this festive special of the sitcom, with Bobby Ball, Geoffrey Whitehead and Deborah Grant. Festive edition from 2013.
