Watch Morecambe Wise Show 1978 online: Episode 4 Christmas With Morecambe & Wise 1980

Another outing sees further material re-used; the opening spot on-stage is however largely new and sees Eric presenting Ernie with a life-sized monogrammed wallet which he is at times. duly trapped inside; following this Mick McManus replaces Henry Cooper in a re-worked sketch, Jill Gascoigne visits the duo for dinner (previously Ann Hamilton had appeared in this sketch), a new Rolf Harris sketch also features, Alec Guinness is the doctor who sees two as one, and Peter Barkworth provides the butt for jokes in the Ernie Wise's Hamlet skit at the end. Some the reused material works very well; the timing in the Xmas dinner sketch is particularly strong with both Morecambe and Wise on top form. The Show closed with the signature tune Bring Me Sunshine. Overall, this Xmas show had some excellent moments but suffered from being a bit flat at times.
