Can’t Help Thinking About Christmas

Can't Help Thinking About Christmas by Tim Worthington.

Can’t Help Thinking About Christmas is a special stocking-filling companion to the year’s best-selling book about obscure radio shows and films nobody remembers and something about a green and black tracksuit top Can’t Help Thinking About Me, and includes the following seasonal trimmings:

– A collection of reviews of some of the worst sitcom Christmas Specials ever made (and a couple of good ones as well!)

– A ‘Christmas Party Medley’ crammed full of nonsense about carol services, BBC Records And Tapes, mind-hurtingly strange Christmas Films, and when some Brookdale kids tried to steal ‘the disco’ in Grange Hill

– The story behind BBC Schools programme Music Time‘s animated adaptation of Lieutenant Kije

– Fact-packed features on pre-Beatles pop compilation Saint Etienne Presents Songs For A London Winter and Santa Claus Is On The Dole by Spitting Image

– The ultimate guide to Denys Fisher’s TV tie-in board games – from War Of The Daleks to Miss World to – uh oh – Pop Twenty…

– And a brand new feature on the little-seen Rising Damp Christmas Special!

All of the previously-seen pieces in Can’t Help Thinking About Christmas have been updated with new footnotes, introductions and extra detail – yes, we finally know who wrote the theme to George And The Dragon! – and there are a couple of extra Yuletide surprises too. It’s probably only going to be available during December, so grab your copy now!

Can’t Help Thinking About Christmas is available in paperback here or from the Kindle store here.

If you’re looking for some yuletide laughs, why not have a listen to last year’s Looks Unfamiliar Christmas Extra?
