The nation's favourite loud-mouthed, tight-fisted, but big-hearted self-appointed community leader Mr. Khan (Adil Ray) and his long-suffering family return to face more trials and tribulations, in the prime time, award-winning series.
In a very special festive episode, Mr. Khan tips his hat to Frank Capra’s Christmas classic It’s A Wonderful Life, with Sparkhill taking the place of Bedford Falls, and Mr. Khan, like George Bailey, facing up to the fact that his life hasn’t turned out the way he planned it.
But an encounter with a mysterious heavenly passer-by (Lynda Baron) shows him how things might have been different and convinces him that, despite all its frustrations, his has a 'Khanderful Life' after all.
Mr. Khan narrates as we go back in time to the The Khans early years.
