AdminHistory'Kevin's Christmas Treat' was a planned Christmas Special. The episode was 'based on Harrods and the West End and the lights and everything and Father Christmas' (Bob Godfrey, interview by Kasper de Graaf, 26 November 2004; Chelsea Arts Club). In a letter from Bob Godfrey to Daniel Postgate, Godfrey writes the following: "A few ideas I put together in Oslo Airport. I was inspired by a Santa Claus Grotto that was fully computerised. Kevin is too old to "believe" in Santa but I think he would want him to be at least human. Here we could have a dig at Christmas rip-offs in big stores" (Bob Godfrey, letter to Daniel Postgate, 29 November 1995).
