Although a pet hate of mine us Christmas specials not set at Christmas I do think the "regular" ep of Gavin and Stacey worked as a Christmas Day episode because it was the polar (or should that be solar) opposite of Christmas, and frankly by 10pm we probably all wanted to escape the festive period.
And like many non-festive Christmas specials it took the characters out of their regular setting, so I don't think it was a complete accident it ended up airing when it did.
BTW in other comedy news Not Going Out has been recommissioned for three more series. Would be nice to see that get a Christmas Day slot in the near future.
