  1. It looks interesting! Wish I could watch it here in the States.... I wonder if someone will load it to YouTube? :-)
    If it keeps to the true account of Christmas, it'll be wonderful! That's neat that BBC even made a miniseries about it at all!

  2. This is really interesting! I'd love to see this! I like that the actors who play Mary and Joseph (and even Gabriel) look like ordinary people and aren't just pretty faces (at least that's how it appears).
    This also answers some questions of why actress Tatiana Maslany didn't reprise her role as Matilda Bassett in An Old-Fashioned Christmas - she was playing Mary! Wow! Thanks for posting this!

  3. Melanie,
    I hope that it will be made available to us somehow...

    Laurie,
    I didn't realize that Tatiana was in Old-Fashioned Thanksgiving! I haven't watched that movie yet or Old-Fashioned Christmas so didn't know that the character had changed.

  7. This is definitley worth seeing my favorite Nativity Movie yet.The insightfulness of the Magi characters and their care in talking to Herod's adviser was very perceptive. A MUST SEE!
