Podcast 265: This is our Christmas Everest, Part Nine: The Torvill & Dean Christmas Special, 1984

by | Dec 9, 2020

Day 9 of the This Is Our Everest Advent calendar sees Edward and Ian visit a curious and extremely topical festive extravaganza from 1984, The Torvill and Dean Christmas Special. The programme wasn’t the light entertainment variety hour either of your heroes were expecting, but their initial relief quickly gives way to astonished disgruntlement once they realise there had been a key omission. Along the way, they discuss the Winter Olympics, pop a stalk in every church in two counties and casually invent the world’s next great pornography franchise. If you’d like to see what Jayne and Chris did next, you can watch it here.

Tomorrow it’s back to 1985 and the sitcom In Sickness & In Health. As ever, enter at your own risk.
