  • This one was very sweet. I loved the nativity.

    I really loved the nativity scene in this episode, especially the birth part, because it was so superbly handled. It was really very sweet, and Alice, for all her lack of brain cells, is really very special. The episode has all sorts of ridiculous jokes, but the opening is one of the few times Alice proves she actually has a brain cell (Working that is) in existance, when she suggests, in response to Geraldine's statement that this year's Christmas play needs to be really special: "Well how about having it in a real stable, so the audience follows the story in as close to its natural setting as is possble given that this si Britain and that the original happenned in Bethlehem.



    In a word, Beautiful.moreless

    • Vicar: So, what? You think I should write the "Second Greatest Story ever told?"


      Hugh: Yes, there is, there is that fantastic story about the woman whose husband got out of the car, and she heard this banging on the roof, and the police said 'get out of the car, and don't look 'round', but she did look 'round, a-a-a-and it was a lunatic, actually banging her husband's severed head on the roof of the car.


      This story is an old urban legend.
