The Peggy Mount Calamity Hour

Christmas with Val Doonican

December 24, 2020

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, Christmas Eve bestowed upon us a lavish light-entertainment repast in the form of BBC’s Christmas 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 Christmas?

Yes, we most certainly do.

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