By Carole Hayman & Lou Wakefield.

It's Christmas and the Ladies of Letters are busy stu-ffing home made turkey sausages, adding hot pepper to their mulled wine and giving each other totally unsuitable Christmas presents.

As family descend on them both, pressure mounts dangerously and the inevitable Christmas chaos ensues.

As Vera returns from a festive trip to the Holy Land, she faces homelessness when a heartless bank buys up her home.

Irene meanwhile is inundated with guests and annoyed that Vera seems too caught up in her own concerns to give her any attention.
