Channel 4 have announced that on Tuesday 24th December fans of ‘The IT Crowd’ will be treated to another viewing of this year’s special, a new behind-the-scenes documentary and the chance to watch some of the show’s most popular episodes.
The format of the night has already been confirmed and it sounds like we’re in for a real treat.
The IT Crowd 2013 Special; The Internet is Coming - 9pm
The night will kick off with this year’s special, ‘The Internet is Coming’, as we’ll revisit Moss’ escapades as an internet superstar and Jen and Roy’s misunderstanding with a homeless woman and dwarf barista. As always, Matt Berry will steal the show as Douglas and we’ll see those fantastic cameos from Jon Snow and Noel Fielding again!
The IT Crowd Manual - 10pm
Perhaps the most exciting show of the evening is this brand new, hour-long, celebration of the sitcom. The IT Crowd Manual will be narrated by Stephen Mangan and will feature interviews with Richard Ayoade, Chris O’Dowd and Katherine Parkinson.
Matt Berry will also appear and will apparently discuss how he felt taking the mantle from Chris Morris and Noel Fielding will talk about playing Richmond Avenal.
Some of the show’s biggest fans and guest stars - Paul Whitehouse, Danny Wallace, Kevin Eldon, Frances Barber, Matthew Crosby, Boyd Hilton and Lucy Montgomery - will also share their favourite moments from Moss, Roy, Jen and co.
The hour-long spectacle will round off with show creator Graham Linehan giving a guided tour around the basement set. We can only hope to see all of the gadgets that line the shelves of the iconic office as he reveals some of his favourite set pieces.
The Fan’s Favourite Episode - 11pm
The third outing of the evening will show the People’s choice episode. Channel 4 have teased that fans should keep an eye on The IT Crowd’s website in order to vote to see their choice transmitted on the night.
With such a number of great episodes to choose from it will be a tough choice but, if I had to go for one, it would probably be series four’s ‘Bad Boys’.
Graham Linehan’s Favourite Episode - 11.30pm
The night will finish off with a screening of Graham Linehan’s favourite episode. It’s not been revealed which one the show creator has chosen yet but with such a fantastically funny back catalogue to choose from it looks like Christmas Eve is going to be a night full of laughter.
Are you looking forward to the night dedicated to The IT Crowd? Which episode would you choose as your favourite?
