This Christmas, primary school teacher Paul Maddens (Martin Freeman) is charged with producing the school's nativity play. Competing against the posh rival school for the honor of best reviewed show in town, the stakes are raised when Paul idly boasts that his ex-girlfriend Jennifer (Ashley Jensen), a Hollywood producer, is coming to see his show with a view to turning it into a film. The only trouble is they haven't spoken in years. With eccentric assistant Mr. Poppy (Marc Wootton) fueling his “little white lie,” Maddens suddenly finds himself a local celebrity and at the center of quarreling parents and over-excited children desperate in their bid for fame and fortune. Maddens' only hope is to get back in touch with Jennifer and lure her to town so that everybody's Christmas wishes come true.

  1. The PC out of DC is mind boggling and all the secular TV stations are falling into compliance, but.....thank God for Hallmark, Hallmark/Mysteries, TCM, TBN and UP channels; who needs ABC??? P.S., love this year's Christmas banner, Net!!!!

    1. Thank you so much, Linda! I so agree with you on
      PC. It is crazy. Freedom of Speech seems to only exist as long as it is Politically Correct. It doesn't make sense to me that ABC let the Hallmark Hall of Fame movies go when their ratings were better than ever. I would think they would want to hold on to a program that received such a large number of viewers. Just don't get it.

      And, thanks so much for the compliment of my Christmas Banner. So glad you "love" it!
