A synopsis for the Christmas special reads: “Martin is called out to see Leonard (Santa) who has had an accident, and as he is anaemic he cannot afford to lose any blood.
“As Martin is driving to Leonard’s house the weather is getting worse and he has an accident, which causes him to hallucinate about his mother, prompting some of his own parenting concerns.
“Eventually making it to Leonard’s house and recovering from the cold, he treats Leonard. Leonard confides in Martin about the death of his wife and why he celebrates Christmas.
“He challenges Martin to do the same. But will they make it back to the village in time for the Christmas parade Louisa has organised?”
Although there is no official confirmed date for the Christmas special, it’s expected to air over the festive period.
