What We Did on Our Holiday


5 Oct - 6 Oct

Despite their recent separation, Doug (David Tennant) and Abi (Rosamund Pike) and their three children travel together to the Scottish Highlands to celebrate Grandad’s 75th birthday. Billy Connolly (in the role of Grandad) joins a talented young cast in a high-spirited family comedy by British writer-directors Andy Hamilton and Guy Jenkin (Outnumbered).

No Longer Available.
  • Doug and Abi’s irrepressible brood – 10-year-old Lottie (Emilia Jones), Mickey (Bobby Smalldridge), 6, and 5-year-old Jess (Harriet Turnbull) – are recruited to help maintain the charade of familial harmony, but not even the Norse god Odin (invoked by Mickey for support) can spare the McLeods a long-overdue reckoning.

    "Grandad is played by Billy Connolly with a mandate to match the candour of his young co-stars and he’s clearly relishing the job. He seems to regard them as fellow 75-year-olds who are only slightly less worldly than he is... the rest of the supporting cast will delight fans of British television" - The Sunday Age
