Christmas Eve With Val Doonican (1986)

They said it couldn’t be done, but here we are at last - the twelfth day of Pegmas and the final seasonal serving of treasured, televisual treats. As was staunch tradition once upon a telly time, December 24th bestowed upon us the gentlest of light-entertainment repasts in the form of BBC One’s Christmas Eve with Val Doonican from 1986. Messrs Velvet, Blackout and Bognops pull on festive knitwear, a well-pressed slack and get seated ‘pon rocking chairs ready for the musical festivities.

Does every rented luxury property in Maidenhead come with a horse-drawn carriage as the de rigour form of commute? Where can I buy reproduction garments so that I may cos-play Val Doonican? Do we wish you, our devoted listener, the very merriest of Christmases?

Yes, we most certainly do.

Enjoy this final episode of the series (ish) and in particular have a chuckle at the end; it’s crackers.
