Christmas with Sid

With the Christmas season upon us once more, what better time to enjoy some cracking photos of our man Sid James in the festive spirit?

The December 1973 edition of the TV Times, featuring Sid and Barbara Windsor promoting the brand new Carry On Christmas television special.

Publicity shot for the aforementioned Carry On Christmas from 1973.

Those of you familiar with Carry On Christmas will notice that Sid is sporting a very different wig to the one that he donned in the broadcast episode.

Sid was the perfect Scrooge in the very first Carry On Christmas in 1969. I would have loved to have seen a Carry On Scrooge film.

Wonderful still from the 1969 Carry On Christmas special, with Sid flanked by those two legendary pantomime dames Terry Scott and Peter Butterworth.

The Thames TV comedy line-up for Christmas 1973 really was rather special wasn't it?

Sid, Charles Hawtrey and glamorous companions get in the festive spirit while promoting Carry On Up the Khyber in 1968.

I'd like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Thank you for your continued support of Sid's Place, both here on the blog and over on Twitter. It brings me so much pleasure to see that the wonderful Sid James is still so beloved by so many.

I would also like to extend a huge thank you to everyone who has purchased a copy of my book A Question of Carry On Your generosity is greatly appreciated.

Coming soon to Sid's Place - a brand new interview with one of Sid's television co-stars. Don't miss it!
