I am a great supporter of this out-and-proud, vulgar and loud sitcom, so it’s a shame to report that this festive edition is below par.
Derek Jacobi and Ian McKellen’s characters, Stuart and Freddie, do little but swish and snipe, and Iwan Rheon is completely wasted as gormless neighbour Ash who, inevitably, bungles their Christmas dinner. So it’s left to the women in their lives to save the programme.
Frances de la Tour is in top gear as Violet the man-eater who’s recently become a masseuse, while Marcia Warren butts in with the best lines as the forgetful Penelope, who suddenly remembers something very important.
A festive edition of the comedy starring Ian McKellen and Derek Jacobi. Freddie and Stuart invite the gang over for a Christmas Day celebration at their flat. A game of truth or dare has a surprising outcome, young neighbour Ash struggles in the kitchen and Freddie prepares for a big role. With Frances de la Tour and Iwan Rheon.
