As usual, Americans are getting shafted when it comes to holiday specials. Let’s be honest; I never need to see A Charlie Brown Christmas ever again. I never need to see It’s A Wonderful Life ever again. And I damn well don’t need 24 hours of back-to-back airings of A Christmas Story.
You know what I wouldn’t mind at all, however? Mark Gatis and Matt Lucas in The Wind in the Willows. Or a special episode of Doctor Who. Especially when it has scenes like this:
You know what would be really nice, though? A live-action version of the only holiday story I still dig, Terry Pratchett’s Hogfather. Especially if you put Marc Warren and Nigel Planer in it. And Michelle Dockery looks to make a fantastic Susan as well.
Oh well, I guess I’ve got my League of Gentlemen Christmas disc to watch.
