First class performaces and story
24 December 1999 | by See all my reviews

Set in a plush department store only days before Christmas, a single mother(Dervla Kirwan) and her two daughters(Holly and Elizabeth Earl), made homeless when their caravan explodes, go and live in Scottley's, the best store in London. A suspicious door-keeper(Peter Capaldi) keeps an eye over them. In Santa's grotto, Santa(Ricky Tomlinson) and his Elf(Sean Hughes) are planning a robbery of Mr Scottley's jewels. Excellent performances alround make it entertaining for everyone. But the best performance was by Elizabeth Earl, her future in acting at the highest level is assured.
