In amongst the well-deserved praise for the many excellent performances in this outstanding series, may I put in a word for Jimmy Akingbola who plays Mick and Olivia Coleman who plays Alex Smallbone. Oh and ....
Mick's own-goal in the Inter-Faith Football tourney was pure joy!
Wonderful, Christmas show. I shall never forget Adam's dance: as outrageous as the Vatican Rag. My daughter had her bike nicked from work last week and we really felt for the Rev. And that shopkeeper with the mince pies... the jobsworth who can't see farther than her nose. And the arch-deacon's moment of conscience: priceless.
Lovely lagubrious cameo from Geoffrey Palmer as Martin.
I liked Alex's father's reaction to being invited to the Christmas lunch for the homeless:
“I don’t want an Amnesty International, Guardian-reading, low-carbon, politically correct Christmas!" So many gems to savour in this programme.
