The Cockfields come back to Gold for Christmas

16/10/2021

Special one-off festive episode to follow series two

Praise for series one:

Daily Mail Weekend - One of the most well-observed comedies of 2019

The Times - Meet The Parents on the Isle of Wight

Radio Times - painfully well observed

Guardian Guide - sitcom splendour

Daily Telegraph - gently addictive

The Sun TV Mag - warm and affectionate fun

TV & Satellite Week - charming

Inside Soap - brilliantly funny

October 15th, 2021 The nations favourite comedy channel Gold today announces a special Christmas episode of The Cockfields (1x60), following on from the six-part series two due to air next month,

Writers Joe Wilkinson and David Earl said,

Getting to write a Christmas Special is a dream come true for us and we cant thank Gold enough for being daft enough to let us do it. We cant wait for you to hang out with the Cockfields again, while we all stuff our faces with sausage rolls and chocolate oranges. Merry Christmas from The Cockfield Family.

The Cockfields Christmas Special stars Wilkinson as Simon and Susannah Fielding as his fianc Esther, travelling back to the Isle of Wight between Christmas and New Year to visit Simons ever-doting mother (Sue Johnston), his controlling yet well-meaning stepfather (Gregor Fisher) and his celebrity-obsessed stepbrother (Ben Rufus Green).

The Cockfields Christmas Special is written by David Earl & Joe Wilkinson. It is commissioned by Pete Thornton, UKTV head of scripted, and ordered by Gerald Casey, Gold channel director. Richard Watsham is UKTV director of commissioning and Steve North is genre general manager, comedy and entertainment. The Cockfields is directed by Simon Hynd, produced by John Rushton for Yellow Door Productions, and exec produced by Lucy Lumsden.

The Cockfields follows a year of high-profile UKTV Original commissions for Gold in 2021 such as series two of The Cockfields, series two of Sandylands, French & Saunders: Funny Women, The Vicar of Dibley: Inside Out and Murder, They Hope.

The Cockfields Christmas special airs in December. Series two of The Cockfields starts next month.
