NATIVITY 2: DANGER IN THE MANGER!
With Martin Freeman safely hobbiting on the other side of the world, it falls to Mr Poppy (BBC3 regular Wootton) the first instalment’s tertiary, subnormal sidekick, to come off the bench and make armpit noises. Tennant joins the panto crew as a pair of warring twin brothers facing off at an X Factor- inspired Christmas singalong. We are not reminded of Kind Hearts and Coronets. This isn’t a cast, it’s a penal battalion, and the film is as “fun” as the zany exclamation point suggests. G cert, gen release, 105 min TB
