Narrated by Steve Coogan, Uncle Wormsley’s Christmas is an animated children’s cautionary tale with a dark heart.
“Uncle Wormsley is a grey, decaying old man who dedicates his life to the care of his only friend, a monstrous crab called Crabsley who lives in a dungeon under his house. Across town lives Johnnie Goodington, a rich boy who has everything money could buy except one thing – a giant monstrous crab. One Christmas, Johnnie’s father strikes a deal with the mysterious and shadowy Crab Catchers. Johnnie shall have his Giant crab, but dark forces have been unleashed. Who can tell where this will end?” the press office at Sky ask.
Uncle Wormsley’s Christmas is voiced by Julian Barrett, Julia Davis, John Thomson and Ben Baker, alongside Steve Coogan as the narrator. The thirty minute animation forms part of Sky Atlantic’s Comedy Mondays.
Uncle Wormsley’s Christmas airs on December 24th at 10pm, 7pm on Christmas Day and 3pm on Boxing Day.
