The Royle Family: Barbara's Old Ring, 2012.
Directed by Caroline Aherne.
Christmas is coming but Barbara is not happy. Not only has she lost her wedding ring but Jim has won on a scratch card she found down the back of the sofa whilst looking for the ring and has kept quiet about his hundred pounds winnings.
The law of diminishing returns could be attributed to The Royle Family as it produces its 5th Christmas special in 6 years, but there is just something about this special show that means it doesn't suffer the same fate as other British comedies.
For example, I loved Only Fools and Horses and still claim that 1996’s Time On Our Hands is one of the finest examples of British sitcom writing, but I am loathed to admit that every time it came back it »
