Collection of four seasonal British comedies from the 'Nativity' series.
In 'Nativity!' (2009) under-achieving primary school teacher Mr Maddens (Martin Freeman) works at a school that competes annually with a local private school for the best production of the Christmas nativity play.
Tired of always playing second fiddle to his arch rival, Gordon Shakespeare (Jason Watkins), Maddens idly concocts a white lie centred around his ex-girlfriend, Hollywood producer Jennifer (Ashley Jensen), in which he boasts that she is coming to see his play with a view to turning it into a film.
What he omits to mention is that he and she have not spoken to one another for years.
Now, with the expectations and burning ambitions of parents and pupils running high, can he possibly turn his elaborate fiction into reality in time to make everyone's Christmas wishes come true?
In 'Nativity 2 - Danger in the Manger' (2012) neurotic newly-qualified teacher Mr Peterson (David Tennant) starts a new job at an underachieving school and soon finds himself juggling his heavy workload with a wildly unconventional classroom assistant, a group of delinquent kids and his own very pregnant wife.
The pressure mounts still further when he somehow becomes embroiled in a madcap plan to enter the National 'Song for Christmas' Competition and finds himself embarking on the craziest road trip of his life.
In 'Nativity 3 - Dude, Where's My Donkey?' (2014) the staff and pupils of St.
Bernadette's face their biggest challenge yet when new teacher Mr Shepherd (Martin Clunes) loses his memory.
Not only that, the school's Christmas mascot Archie the Donkey has also gone missing.
With Mr Shepherd's fiancée Sophie (Catherine Tate) in New York, can the pupils help reunite them and restore order before Christmas comes?
In 'Nativity Rocks!' (2018) the children and staff at St Bernadette's primary school are tasked with the challenge of competing against other schools for the Christmas Town of the Year competition.
With the wacky new teaching assistant Mr Poppy (Simon Lipkin) on hand to help out and bring an exciting new flair to the nativity, the school are well on their way to reaching regional stardom.
