PCs Singh & McKirdy share a seasonal sing-song in the cop car and do their best to bag the first arrest of the new year.
Police Chief Cameron Miekelson opens up his 'Radgevent' Calendar, shows the nation his personal season's greetings card, attends to a Christmas crisis up North and makes it his mission to celebrate every festive celebration celebrated in Scotland.
Meanwhile, Officer Karen keeps cool when Bobby gets burnt by dodgy aftershave.
Rural duo McIntosh and Mackay encounter a kingdom of crud as they investigate the world's worst winter wonderland; Queen of Communications Maggie Le Beau draws the short straw and ends up having to work Christmas Day; and city cops Fletcher and McLaren are on the case when the party animals are all over the place.

This is a Christmas special in advance of the new series which begins in the new year. You'll be glad to hear they haven't tampered with anything. All the old characters are still here - even the ones who are not funny in the slightest, such as the annoying and bland Maggie Le Beau.
Usually big Cameron Miekelson (Jack Docherty) gets the majority of the screen time but tonight, and quite rightly so, the star is the nervous wee volunteer officer, Ken Beattie. He tries to help a rather large and intoxicated lady up from the pavement and it turns out badly for the good Samaritan: the big, loud woman is always either screeching at him or trying to seduce him. He ends up being dragged back to her house for, er, mince pies. Poor Ken!
Strangely, the best character of all, Bobby, only gets a tiny appearance tonight, which is a shame. Maybe he and the weary Officer Karen are keeping their powder dry for the new series.Julie McDowall, The National (Scotland), 21st December 2016
