You should be able to find the good life Christmas ep on catch up. It was shown yesterday.

Royle family Christmas specials are also my faves.

Vicar of Dibley - both The Chrsitmas Lunch Incident and Winter. I always try to watch both on Christmas Eve.

My favourite is the first Gavin and Stacey one, from 2008 I think?
Also love The Royle Family ones but can't watch The Queen of Sheba, it reminds me so much of my Gran it breaks my heart.

Blackadder's Christmas aril is my absolute fave...

Only Fools and Horses the Batman and Robin episode

The Good Life Christmas ep is brilliant.
I do enjoy the original Gavin & Stacey Christmas special too.
Vicar of Dibley Christmas Dinner incident and when Alice has her baby, I think its called Winter.

Father Ted! And the Royle Family too.

I love the Christmas episode of Bottom.
Also the Holiday Armadillo episode of friends

- Father Ted Christmas special where they get lost in Ireland's biggest lingerie department grin

- All the Only Fools and Horses Christmas specials (Dates and Jolly Boys Outing are the best)

Vicar of Dibley episode where Geraldine takes on three Christmas dinners as she's too polite to hurt anyone's feelings lol

Ah just came on to say Father Ted, me &. DH have just watched it. Very funny episode

notafanoftheman Thu 24-Dec-20 07:32:56

The Office.

It's got to be Father Ted

SausageRoll2020 Thu 24-Dec-20 07:41:44

Some brilliant classics mentioned above.

I'd also add the Christmas special of Upstart Crow that was on earlier this week (BBC so will be on iPlayer). It had us giggling all the way through and so well done with just two in the cast.

Vicar of Dibley - both The Chrsitmas Lunch Incident and Winter. I always try to watch both on Christmas Eve.

This - I love the scene where Geraldine
is trying to eat the sprouts to win against David!

NorbertMeubles Thu 24-Dec-20 08:21:17

Father Ted, watched it last night. Absolutely brilliant.

FindHungrySamurai Thu 24-Dec-20 08:24:33

The Good Life is the most Christmassy. Father Ted is the funniest but doesn’t make me feel Christmassy.

Just watched the new Christmas episode of Ghosts, which was lovely.

dinnerladies when they discover it's Bren's birthday

evilharpy Thu 24-Dec-20 08:41:10

Nothing beats Father Ted.

Also love Knowing Me, Knowing Yule with Alan Partridge.

CosyAcorn Thu 24-Dec-20 08:42:31

Dinnerladies is wonderful!

The American Office when Michael hijacks Secret Santa always makes me giggle
