Two Doors Down review – a painfully funny portrait of a Covid ChristmasDecember 29, 2020
You can move the cast from Latimer Crescent to a Highlands holiday home, but you can’t stop them being uncomfortable, mean and very funny
Next year promises the arrival of a fifth series of the long-running Scottish sitcom Two Doors Down (BBC Two), but here for now is a typically self-contained festive special, which so closely replicates a certain type of family Christmas that it almost makes up for not being able to gather in large numbers.
The action has moved from the front room of Latimer Crescent to Cathy and Eric’s holiday home in the Highlands, lit up more like a city centre’s main shopping street than a Christmas tree. Cathy, never knowingly understated, has invited her neighbours for a post-Christmas break in the great outdoors.
