Brit sitcom gets festive
THERE will be laughs to be had from the Christmas special for Brit sitcom Outnumbered. The special opens on Boxing Day in the Brockman household. Santa has paid a visit. So have some burglars. While Mum (Claire Skinner) and Dad (Hugh Dennis) try to maintain the festive spirit, Ben (Daniel Roche) wreaks havoc with a mechanical hand, Jake (Tyger DrewHoney) argues the case for pirated music and Karen (Ramona Marquez) is busy writing New Year’s resolutions – not just for herself, but for the rest of the family and US President Barack Obama. Guests will arrive soon – some welcome; some less so. The pressure is on Dad to get lunch on the table until he asks the question – where’s Grandad?
