Storyline

The staff are seen at a funeral,which would appear to be Mac's but is actually that of Angela,killed in a hunting accident with a moose. Rescued by Martin from falling over the cliff Alan and Joanna go on the run,accidentally killing three people in an inadvertent crime spree before deciding to commit suicide by walking into the sea. With Joanna gone the administrative staff start to run riot but find a new 'mummy' in Harriet. Caroline overhears Mac telling Guy that he only has a matter of weeks to live and so she transfers her affections from Guy and marries Mac,despite his terminal condition. At the wedding she is last seen floating away clutching a fistful of helium balloons. Written by don @ minifie-1

British humour at its best!!
29 December 2006 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

First of all, this episode has a duration of approximately 90 minutes. So before you start watching this you might want to prepare yourself for 90 minutes of pure laughter! It's that great to take precautions!!

I bought the DVD's a couple of weeks ago and I have to say "Green Wing" is now in my top 3 comedy shows that I've ever seen! (it probably figures it had to be British) But when I saw this special (released in Belgium on 29/12/06) I was astonished! They had been able to top all the other episodes!! It's full of ingenious twists and it keeps being hilarious throughout the whole 90 minutes, it isn't boring for a minute!! In general I'm not the one that's laughing out loud, but damn… now I was LMAO! Especially with the scenes including Guy Secretan!

Every character reaches it's climax, the gags are more brilliant than ever, the storyline is just absolutely hilarious!! If you liked previous episodes you can't get your hopes high enough for this flick, it won't let you down! Only the title can be misleading, I don't see any link with Christmas except the time of release.But nevertheless, it's a GREAT Christmas/new year's present!!

To all who helped making this new kind of comedy, THANK YOU!!
