This would be the first festive episode with Seymour as part of the trio after he was introduced in the previous year's Christmas special. Uncle of the Bride.
Marina has bought a present for Howard but needs Clegg's help to hand it to Howard without Pearl finding out. As always Pearl always pops up unexpected and Clegg is not clever enough to talk his way out of it successfully.
Seymour meanwhile wants to see a proper rooftop Father Christmas and literally ropes Compo into a santa suit and up a ladder. At least for Compo this is a way to impress Nora Batty.
As I have mentioned before Seymour just did not warm to me. He was too pompous and unfunny, even when he tries to break up a fight in a pub and ends up getting kicked out himself.
Even the Marina and Howard story seems to have run out of steam and it is only 1986. Only about another quarter of a century still to go for this affair to drag on.
