Episode menu

Series 1, Episode 2

Christmas is coming and so, not to be beaten by his hated rival, the owner of Macgillygally's Stores, Mr. Pinwright prepares his Christmas Bazaar. There is trouble though, partly occasioned by the sudden appearance of three robed and bearded Father Christmases - one of whom is a fugitive from the law. Mrs. Sigsbee however lends tone to the proceedings by appearing in costume as the Fairy Queen and all ends well - or does it?


This episode no longer exists in the archives. It is missing, believed wiped.
