There is little in this world that I love more than a Christmas episode of anything (except, of course, for a Chanukah episode), but even in that hallowed category, Ab Fab stands alone. The show, which revolved around cig-puffing, champers-swilling British society lushes Edina and Patsy simply trying to get from day to day without doing too much damage to themselves or Edina’s precocious, uber-nerdy daughter Saffy, ran for an exultant five seasons—plus a reboot of which we do not speak—and while I would have preferred it go forever, its Christmas-themed exit almost made me forgive its absence.
In the finale, titled “Cold Turkey,” the central tension of the show is laid bare: Edina, or Eddy, is caught between going away on a glamorous vacation with Patsy or staying home to celebrate Christmas domestically with Saffy. The episode is, to put it simply, 2003 as hell in so many ways—campy, over-the-top, poorly subtitled and deeply of its time—but watching Patsy and Eddy saw into a roast chicken and toast each other with champagne and cigarettes will always make me feel cozy.
Spoiler: At the end of the episode, Eddy ultimately chooses to spend Christmas with Patsy and Saffy in addition to the rest of their extended clan, and while there’s plenty of nonsense and hilarity to soften the sweetness of it all—Patsy almost dies from choking on a chicken bone!—there’s something genuinely meaningful about watching Eddy ring in the holidays surrounded by loved ones, particularly when so many of us aren’t doing the same this year.
