Last year the Brockmans decided to go away for Christmas: this year they’re throwing a party at the heart of their community. But the bosom of the neighbourhood is not as pillowy and restful as they might like. The guests include Norris, who has opinions; Ray, who used to be a weatherman and doesn’t seem to have coped well afterwards;
and Jane, whose romantic life is unmanageable.
Gran turns up for a surprise visit, Karen is online most of the time and at the window, there’s the gentle, then insistent, tap-tap of a winter virus. There’s only so much spirit-lifting a gathering of neighbours can be expected to do. For everything else, there’s Ben and his party games. Christmas Swingball, anyone?
The Brockmans do their bit for the community by throwing a party for their friends and neighbours - but things do not go as planned. Jake seems to have fallen in with a bad crowd, Karen would rather be chatting online and Pete's mum has turned up unexpectedly. The guests include Sue's friend Jane, whose love life is a disaster, traumatised ex-weatherman Ray and opinionated neighbour Norris. Sanjeev Bhaskar and Mark Heap guest star in this festive special of the domestic comedy from 2012, with Hugh Dennis and Claire Skinner.
