Storyline

Susan treats Ben to a Christmas hotel break supposedly just for the two of them, but she has secretly invited other family members, including Alfie and his strange Uncle Idris and Michael's left-wing girl-friend Gwen. Abi is also working as the hotel's masseuse. Crystal, a patient besotted with Ben, arrives to say her jealous boy-friend has escaped from jail and is on his way to kill Ben. Fortunately he is caught but Ben still has to face the rest of the family, though all ends well in a room full of presents. Written by don @ minifie-1

Not great festive offering from the Harpers
9 December 2016 | by studioATSee all my reviews

Going into its eight series the creative team of 'My Family' obviously were looking to do new things. And that lead to this so-so Christmas special that tried to go for the sort of all out farce that other sitcoms like 'Frasier' did so well.

And there are nice moments - Ben having a massage, the final pile up of Santa's, but farce is such a subjective thing and for me it doesn't feel like 'My Family', which in the beginning was rooted in verbal humour rather than the visual.

I enjoyed the cameo from 'Only Fools' legend, John Challis but for me there was little to get excited about in this episode of the successful British sitcom.
