Barry's Christmas
11 December 2019 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

We first encountered Barry after he got drunk and injured himself in Uncle of the Bride.

Here Barry went out on a charity outing on Christmas evening dressed as Santa, got drunk and ended up spending the night in the pub. Luckily our trio come across him in the pub the next morning.

Now he is scared that Glenda would kill him. The ladies try to sooth Glenda but they are not successful by mentioning he might have run off with another woman.

I doubt in reality Wesley would have time to buy a hearse on Boxing day morning. Glenda would had rung up on Christmas night telling her mother that Barry has not come home.

The hearse is merely a device for a drunk Santa to be laid out at the back of it causing a shock to the lookers on. Foggy ends up on a horse and he buys himself a Beeper for some reason as a Christmas present for himself.

Not the best of the Christmas specials. The Santa scenes on the hearse brings a few laughs. Ronnie Hazlehurst has fun with his riff on the Black Beauty theme as Foggy goes off on a horse.

This would be Mike Grady's last appearance as not so young Barry for some years. He returns to the show in the 1996 Christmas special.
