The likes of Hugh Dennis and Miranda Hart discuss what it takes to make the perfect Christmas special. Meanwhile, cast members revisit memorable locations used in One Foot in the Grave, Gavin & Stacey, Father Ted and The Vicar of Dibley.

Comedies have always been big on friendships, be they soulmates or odd couples. Men Behaving Badly's Gary and Tony were always the former and so it seems are actors Martin Clunes and Neil Morrissey: writer Simon Nye admits that it was sometimes difficult to see where his scripts ended and real-life began. There's a chance to witness some of that spark here thanks to a montage of very funny bloopers. Of course, get the chemistry right and you have a mucker for life - as the 295 episodes of Last of the Summer Wine demonstrate.
