CHRISTMAS ON BRITISH TV
ALL CREATURES GREAT & SMALL
If you were wondering what will air on UK TV these holidays other than Around the World in 80 Days and The Tourist over at BBC, we're here to inform you: Channel 5 will traditionally air festive episode of ALL
CREATURES GREAT AND SMALL on Christmas Eve December 24th! In the Christmas special, it’s Christmas in Darrowby, and Helen and James (Nicholas Ralph) realise they haven’t agreed on where they’re spending
Christmas Day. Mrs Hall (Anna Medeley) is expecting them at Skeldale and Jenny is expecting them at Heston Grange, and the pair are reluctant to disappoint either of them. When a beloved local pet is taken seriously ill,
Siegfried (Samuel West) has to bring it into the practice for emergency treatment. In the face of such an emergency, Helen ends up feeling like a spare part at the Skeldale Christmas party! Tristan (Callum Woodhouse) learns
that it might be time to take himself more seriously and reveals some important news, while a card from James’s father asking him to phone them on Christmas Day leaves James on tenterhooks about whether he can make amends with his family.

HOLIDAYS WITH THE LARKINS
BBC's biggest rival ITV has decided to take us to the idyllic Kent countryside village on Christmas, December 25th, where THE LARKINS family live in the 1950s, and this will be a holiday special episode of the series that just ended its first season run on ITV. In the holiday special, Mariette and
Charley take their love to the next level and Pop
(Bradley Walsh) and Ma (Joanna Scanlan) are overjoyed to have the pair
back for Christmas, but when Charley’s parents arrive to meet the Larkin
clan, and the entire village is left without lighting and heating
following a power cut, chaos descends on the Larkins farm.
