Storyline

When Dorcas and Emma each want to give Laura the same gift for Christmas, an old family wound is opened up and Laura finds herself torn between two mothers. As the inhabitants of Lark Rise and Candleford prepare for the festivities, loyalties are tested and, amid the gift-giving and carol-singing, tensions are building. However, the arrival of a ragged, barefooted young woman, who goes by the name of Cinderella Doe, introduces a note of Christmas mystery. Dorcas also receives a Christmas letter from Sir Timothy.

Goofs

The final scene shows the villagers singing "O Little Town of Bethlehem" to Ralph Vaughan Williams' tune "Forest Green". This music was written for the "English Hymnal" in 1906, but in earlier scenes the date stamp shown on some envelope close-ups at the Post Office shows the figures '94' quite clearly, indicating the year to be 1894.
