This two-part Christmas special of the much-loved ITV comedy series following the fortunes of a gang of British builders was first screened in December 2004. Following their recent narrow escape from a British Embassy in Africa besieged by rioters, the lads relocate to the Australian Embassy in Laos for their next job. After all their adventures, one by one the boys start realising there's more to life than being part of their gang - a feeling brought into sharp focus after a letter arrives from Bomber telling them he's swapping his trowel for a settled family life. On successfully completing the job, and sensing this could be the last time they're all together, the boys make big plans for some rest and relaxation in neighbouring Thailand. But it's not long before events and a familiar enemy conspire against them, and rest and relaxation become a distant memory...
