Yes, it’s Christmas already. No, Tesco’s haven’t started rolling out sausages wrapped in bacon, we’re talking TV Christmas here. ITV has announced that it is reuniting Robson Green and the ace Mark Benton (last seen in Hughie Green, Most Sincerely) in another of those Nothern/Christmas Lights comedy dramas. But this time… it’s war. Or something like it. OK, not war, but sort of mild arguing in a Christmas style.
Clash Of The Santas follows Christmas Lights, Northern Lights and City Lights and sees Colin and Howie go to Lithuania to take part in a Santa convention. Howie has been asked to represent England in the annual Santa competition, but Colin (naturally) thinks he’s the better Father Christmas. Cue more Christmas feuds and intense rivalry.
Nicola Stephenson and Sian Reeves return as their put-upon wives.
