Victoria Wood's Mid Life Christmas Genre Comedy Created by Victoria Wood Starring Victoria Wood Julie Walters Anton du Beke Delia Smith Jayne Torvill Christopher Dean Reece Shearsmith Emily Atack Steve Elias Jennie Dale Country of origin United Kingdom Production Producer(s) John Rushton Victoria Wood (executive producer) Running time 60 minutes Broadcast Original channel BBC One Original airing 24 December 2009 Chronology Related shows Victoria Wood: What Larks! Victoria Wood: Seen On TV Victoria Wood With All The Trimmings External links Website Victoria Wood's Mid Life Christmas is a comedy sketch show written by and starring comedienne Victoria Wood, broadcast on Christmas Eve 2009. The programme, Wood's first sketch show for nine years, was described by Wood as being "a whole night's telly crammed into one hour. Christmas is a stressful time and, by compressing an evening's viewing into 60 minutes, we hope families will have more time for other festive traditions such as arguing with relatives and defrosting turkeys under the hot tap".[1] The special featured a spoof documentary titled Beyond The Marigolds,[2] in which Wood's long-time collaborator Julie Walters reprised her role as "Bo Beaumont", the actress behind Acorn Antiques character "Mrs. Overall". Beyond The Marigolds saw Beaumont's foray into the world of celebrity programming such as I'm A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here!, Dancing On Ice and Strictly Come Dancing. The sketch included special guest appearances from Delia Smith, Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean and Anton du Beke. Also featured in Mid Life Christmas was The Mid Life Olympics 2009, a series of sketches that include events such as the "4 by 400 Hedge Trimming" and "Ladies Outdoor Parking", featuring Wood as the commentator.[3] There was an homage to BBC costume drama (Lark Rise to Candleford, Little Dorrit and Cranford) with the sketch Lark Pies to Cranchesterford; a series of parodies of television adverts; and a send-up of The Apprentice in which Sir Alan Sugar's sidekicks Margaret Mountford and Nick Hewer (portrayed inimitably by Wood and Mid Life Christmas choreographer Stephen Mear) share an uncharacteristic jazz dance together. To close the special, Wood reprised her famous song The Ballad of Barry and Freda (Let's Do It), first performed on her sketch show Victoria Wood As Seen On TV in 1987. The dance sequence accompanying the song spoofed the elaborate Busby Berkeley sequences of the '30s and '40s with, as the BBC described it, plenty of "midriff bulge". When the programme was repeated on BBC One on 5 June 2010 it was re-titled Victoria Wood's Short Term Memories. References ^ "BBC One Programmes: Victoria Wood's Mid Life Christmas". BBC. 2009-12-14.
