The BBC has released details of the upcoming Gavin and Stacey Christmas Special. They’ve released a plot synopsis. BBC One will be airing the one-off special on Christmas Day in the UK. As for airing in the USA, BritBox has announced that they will be releasing the special on their service on Christmas day along with adding the entire run of the original series.
Here’s the preview trailer for Gavin & Stacey:
Here are the plot details released by the BBC:
Gavin & Stacey follows Gavin, an ordinary boy from Essex in England and Stacey (Joanna Page), an ordinary girl from Barry in Wales, spoke on the phone to each other every day at work, and then they finally met, fell in love and got married. The special is being produced by Fulwell 73, Tidy Productions and Baby Cow Productions and stars Mathew Horne, Joanna Page, Ruth Jones, James Corden, Rob Brydon, Larry Lamb, Melanie Walters and Alison Steadman.
In the special, Bryn’s cooking dinner for over thirteen people. Understandably he’s tense. Pam would secretly prefer to spend Christmas in Essex as she finds Gwen’s house a bit lacking. But the deal has always been that they alternate every year, and this time it’s the turn of the Wests to host Christmas with everyone under one small roof. For Gavin and Stacey, parenthood continues to present them with several challenges, their ‘baby’ now being ten. Smithy, too, continues to commit to his fatherly role, making the journey to Barry at weekends and every second Wednesday to see twelve year old Neil the Baby. Nessa on the other hand adopts her own brand of Nessa-style mothering whilst Pam, Mick and Gwen have become the epitome of doting grandparents. On Christmas Eve, Dawn makes a shocking discovery about Pete that jeopardizes their marriage (again) and a visit to the pub that night is an eye opener in more ways than one.
Sounds like it will be a lot of fun! A nice festive treat. It will air in the UK on BBC One on Christmas Day. In the past Gavin & Stacey aired on BBC America, the special WILL NOT be on BBC America. Instead, it will be released on Christmas Day on BritBox (and they have a great line-up of Christmas programming worth checking out as well).
