Get Santa

What's this, Santa banged up in jail? Well, yes, it's true!

What’s this, Santa banged up in jail? Well, yes, it’s true! The poor bloke (Jim Broadbent) is in trouble after crashing his sleigh during a pre-Christmas test drive and no one believes he’s the real Mr Claus.

So it’s up to ex-con Steve (Rafe Spall) and his young son (Kit Connor) to free him and save Christmas. What follows is a bit daft, although it’s still an enjoyable, family-friendly festive caper featuring a host of familiar faces.

Jim Broadbent seems to have a thing about Santa – he voiced him in the 2011 hit Aardman animation Arthur Christmas (showing on C4 this afternoon).
