To pre-empt a series in which comedy stars watch and comment on classic TV shows (a celebrity Gogglebox of sorts) comes this rather wonderful tinselly edition. A Baublebox, if you will. So sitcom pairings including Miranda’s Sally Phillips and Sarah Hadland, and John Challis and Sue Holderness from Only Fools, are treated to festive Father Teds and Fast Shows, ‘Allo ‘Allo! and Are You Being Served? And sometimes their own series.
Their comments are funny and insightful, and it’s intriguing to see which programmes our famous viewers are sniffy about now. Is it a simple case of old-school versus modern edge?
Everybody is up for it. But The Royle Family’s still-in-character father and son deserve their own show. When Ricky Tomlinson reveals that Eric Morecambe used to ad-lib, Ralf Little slaps him on the arm and says, “Oh! Who might do that, eh? What kind of unprofessionalism might that be?” But Ricky can’t help filling up when he sees the late Caroline Aherne (his on-screen daughter Denise Royle) in action again. You will, too.
Laughter, tears: it’s all here.
John Challis, Sue Holderness, Sally Phillips, Sarah Hadland, Ricky Tomlinson, Ralf Little, Russell Tovey and Sarah Solemani watch clips from festive shows including Morecambe and Wise, Father Ted, Only Fools and Horses and The Royle Family, providing fresh insight, smart observations and hilarious anecdotes.
