Duration: 30 minutes

It is time for the Abbey Grove Christmas Play and with Miss Pickwell no longer around Mr Fraser decides Alfie is the obvious replacement to direct this year's production. But with the class undecided about whether to put on the Nutcracker or Robocop, will Alfie's decision to write and direct a plot mash-up of Robocracker and casting school bully Grayson as co-lead prove successful?

Mitchell decides to do something lovely for Alfie and invite his estranged mother to the play, but will Mr Fraser and Mitchell come up with a good enough reason to lure her over from Spain with her new husband Javier? And will Miss Gulliver manage to persuade Alfie and his class to volunteer at the soup kitchen where a Scottish tramp makes quite an impression?
