  All the family Drinkin' (aka Cold Turkey)
First broadcast 24/12/03


It's been a big year in the Monsoon household, Saffy has got herself a boyfriend and given birth to a baby girl. Edina has come to terms with becoming a grandmother - but not with her grand-daughter's name Jane, she prefers Lola.

Even more surprisingly she's developed a closer relationship with Saffron. Patsy meanwhile is feeling put out and neglected, particularly after failed attempts to move into celebrity styling and awards presenting, not to mention the discovery of those porn movies.

However Christmas is guaranteed party time - Patsy and Eddie always go away to somewhere hot and exotic and drink themselves into a stupor. Patsy hates Christmas and refuses to acknowledge its existence.

Patsy and Eddy Unfortunately Eddie has other plans this year and for the very first time, she wants to stay at home with Saffy and her grand-daughter. She's even applying her usual restrained shopping style on Christmas presents. Saffy is thrilled with her Mum's new found interest in Christmas but is getting tired of her attempts to commercialise the day.

Bubble meanwhile is less impressed with her new role as the Christmas Fairy while Bo and Marshall are working on a fantastic new product "Staylene" - ideal for dealing with Christmas excesses. John is fascinated to find out that Eddie's first husband is gay and has a lot of questions to ask.

All of this Christmas spirit is too much for Patsy, she starts hallucinating about past Christmas' with her mother and sister. She collapses and has to be rushed into hospital. Has 43 (67) years of drug and alcohol abuse finally taken its toll - is this the end for Patsy?


Guest stars:
Eleanor Bron (Patsy's Mum), Kate O'Mara (Jackie).
