The team behind The Play That Goes Wrong bring us another production which you can expect will have the same disastrous results.

In order to get around the BBC’s blacklist, the company have used the fictional counterpart, the Cornley Polytechnic Drama Society, to hijack a production of A Christmas Carol, starring Derek Jacobi as Ebenezer Scrooge. However, things soon do indeed go wrong, from issues with the sound, the cast, and narrator Diana Rigg being stuck in traffic.

A Christmas Carol Goes Wrong is on BBC One at 19.10.
