143: Carry on Christmas Streaming

Christmas is almost upon us and like every family, the ‘At The Flicks’ team will be in our bubble in front of the TV. There will of course be the usual arguments – Jeff will no doubt be demanding the TV remote, Neil will refuse to hand it over and Graham will be quietly getting drunk and wondering why he put’s himself through this year after year!

At the Flicks · 143: Carry on Christmas Streaming

Once all those disputes are settled, the question will then be “what shall we watch next”. Luckily this podcast has the answer. We brought in TV expert Declan for this special Carry On Christmas Streaming episode. Dec tells us about some shows we have missed over the last few weeks which may well be worth catching up with following our turkey dinner binge. This might even be the time to catch up with the latest series of the Crown (we could even persuade Graham it is a documentary which has replaced the Queen’s speech this year).

If we are too lazy for a retrospective selection, then maybe it is time for some “live” TV and watching some of the very impressive output for this unusual festive season. There is an interesting reworking of Black Narcissus, a Dr Who special with The Daleks and for Neil, plenty of animation, including Zog and The Clown. So much to choose from and all discussed by Dec here.

So if you have the same problem as we do in deciding what to watch, then check out Dec’s recommendations. It may be a cliché, however we believe there his selection has something for everyone.

Whatever you watch, have a great Christmas and may all your selections be wonderful.
