Question of the week: what’s your favourite Christmas comedy?

Advent continues and so do the Christmas questions. This week, as per Jane’s suggestion last week:

What’s your favourite Christmas comedy?

This can include comedy movies (although we did movies last week), so let’s focus on Christmas specials and Christmas episodes of shows. So you could have The Next Doctor or The Feast of Steven if you like Doctor Who, for example, and there are plenty of Only Fools and Horses specials to be getting on with too.

What’s yours?

As always, leave a comment with your answer or a link to your answer on your own blog.

I’ve edited Dreamwatch, Sprocket and Cambridge Film Festival Daily; been technical editor for TV producers magazine Televisual; reviewed films for the short-lived newspaper Cambridge Insider; written features for the even shorter-lived newspaper Soho Independent; and was regularly sarcastic about television on the blink-and-you-missed-it “web site for urban hedonists” The Tribe.
