Keeping Up Appearances Christmas 1991, The Father Christmas Suit

As funny today as it was thirty years ago, The Father Christmas Suit became The show’s first  Christmas Special and the final episode of series 2.




It’s Christmas and Hyacinth has volunteered Richard to distribute gifts to the old people  at the Church Hall.

In order that the the job is done properly Hyacinth hires a Father Christmas outfit for Richard to wear whilst distributing the gifts.   Against his will, Richard puts it on, but after one too many sherries with Emmet, Elizabeth must don the outfit and pretend to be Richard, but as usual, disaster strikes.
