Flint Street Nativity (DVD)
TV comedy film starring Frank Skinner, Neil Morrissey, Jane Horrocks, Dervla Kirwan, Ralf Little et al.
Schoolteacher Mrs Humphries (Lyn Hunter) must surely wonder what she did to deserve her particular class of seven-year-olds. Jane Horrocks, Dervla Kirwan, Josie Lawrence, Neil Morrissey, Frank Skinner and Stephen Tompkinson make up just part of the register, each assigned a role in the school Nativity play.
Preston Front writer Tim Firth's hilarious and poignant seasonal one-off has a cast-list that reads like a Who's Who of British comedy, was filmed on an oversize set to make the actors' characters all the more believable, and features choice performances from a power-mad Angel Gabriel and a lovelorn Innkeeper.
