2002 Christmas special of the Emmy award-winning series devised and written by Jennifer Saunders. While Patsy (Joanna Lumley) has embarked on a new career as Creative Director and Buyer for Jeremy's, a new concept fashion store, Eddie (Saunders) is becoming increasingly bored by Saffy (Julia Sawlha) and Bubble's (Jane Horrocks) company. After taking London Fashion Week by storm, Patsy has a new taste for flash photography, frocks and male models and sets her sights Stateside. In the meantime, Eddie discovers that her long-lost son Serge (Josh Hamilton) is living somewhere in New York - and despite Saffy's efforts to keep his exact whereabouts a secret, she also decides to descend on the Big Apple. Edina is particularly excited about tracking down her son when she discovers that he is gay. But will Serge turn out to be the Queen of Camp that she has always longed for, or will he be a square disappointment like Saffy?

It seems to go at a slower and slightly more claustrophobic pace when compared to the rest of the series and it seems as though its missing something. The ending however I found as satisfying as I think you could ever get and it does wrap the series up in a nice, well, Box you could say.
Even though it doesn't match the previous episodes for laughs this is still well written and brilliantly acted comedy from performers at the top of their game.
Worth getting if you have the rest of the episodes or want to see how the whole thing ended but overall it is nothing worth shouting about.
PS- This is region 1, I have a multiregion player... the only way you can get this for region 2 (as far as I'm aware) is buy getting 'Absolutely Everything' the full series set. For some reason they never released it seperately in England. I emailed BBC DVD about it and they pointed me to the full series set... I suppose they thought I could buy that even though, as I said in the email, I already had 5 season DVDs and 2 specials and only needed this one episode. Thank God for BBC America, or I probably wouldn't have this.
Eddi goes to the States in search of her estranged gay son - Serge. In the process, we meet many oddball characters but the lady evangelist has to be one of the most cracking - just wait til you see the scene of her and another Jane Horrocks character on evangelist TV!!!
Before you wonder how on earth you can justify paying full DVD price for a 45 minute show - fear not: you will sure get value for money with this.
There's also an interesting commentary by Jennifer Saunders and producer Jon Plowman.
