Vicious Christmas Special;
Aging prima donna Freddie Thornhill is an over-the-hill bit part actor and his gay partner, retired bar manger Stuart Bixby have spent the last 48 years together. The honeymoon (so to speak) is long over and their frequent bickering takes on a sharpish and deliciously vicious tone at times.
But their frequent arguments are incredibly embarrassing and awkward for their friends, neighbors, and even casual bystanders can attest to.
Vicious was a short-lived British sitcom TV series starring award-winning actor Sir Ian McKellen in one of the principal roles. The series was generally well received by critics and had one Christmas Special and one special Finale episode which saw the two main characters, Freddie Thornhill and Stuart Bixby finally formally marry after 50 years together.
