A Merry Heatwave question


Dedicated Member
Was the episode "A Merry Heatwave" ever specifically intended to be a Christmas special or was it just an ordinary part of a series. I ask because it was broadcast on 1st January, which is within the Christmas and New Year holidays, but with other episodes broadcast within a week of it, it did make me wonder.


From IMDB.com
"It's an incredibly warm Christmas season but Nora is very sad - her brother Billy in Australia isn't expected to see another Christmas ..." I hope this helps.

My take is part of the series but with a Christmas theme and shown around Christmas time. Not an independent special episode separate from the rest of the series.

It was broadcast on January 1st 1978, its not billed as an xmas special but with it being that close to xmas it's often taken as one. A Small. Tune is classed as that years special.
