Characters: , , , , , ,
  • Lily and Freddie are longing to go skating, but Nigel and Elizabeth insist they must do more practice exam papers. When Jill comes to see the Lower Loxley Christmas extravaganza, she is saddened to see the twins being made to do so much extra work, though Elizabeth assures her they will have Christmas week off.

A worried Harry thinks he has been saved when Lynda announces that the absence of rats makes its impossible to do that scene, but Jazzer’s departure forces her to rethink, and the great kiss takes place to the plaudits of Nigel. He asks Harry whether he and Fallon are an item. Harry is amazed; Fallon is way out of his league. Somehow Fallon does not seem to share that view…
