It might be mid-January, but the ABC have decided now is the perfect time to deliver a Christmas special….
The decorations are going up, but the Larkin family are sad at not having Mariette at home for Christmas. Until Mariette and Charley suddenly return, back for good from France.

Miss Pilchester is struggling to direct the village’s nativity-panto combo, not helped by a disastrous power cut. Will the villagers get their precious stolen knickknacks back?
Will the power be back in time for Christmas, and the pantivity go ahead? And can Charley’s strict parents be won over by the Larkins?
