Seasons in Detail


Christmas special of the sitcom in which Amanda organises her annual festive soiree, complete with a strict code of conduct on when and where to drink mulled wine and an evil Santa. Meg is the only other mother to earn an invite, but Julia, Kevin and Liz all tag along anyway. For Julia, the party is a welcome distraction from hosting her in-laws, while Liz is trying to ignore Christmas altogether and Kevin is single-handedly stuffing, wrapping, roasting, parboiling, laying up, washing up and decorating everything he can lay his hands on.

Genre: Sitcom

Running Time: 30 minutes (approx)
