22 Minutes’ creator Mary Walsh and original player Greg Thomey both return in Tuesday night’s hour-long holiday episode. In its 20th season, the Halifax-based CBC comedy has been a bright spot in an otherwise challenging fall for CBC, where hockey is missed like nowhere else.
East Coast icon Gordon Pinsent–flown in from St. John’s where he was shooting an episode of Republic of Doyle–also gets in on the fun, as does Peter Keleghan. Look for politicians to get in on the act, too, including premieres Christie Clark and Alison Redford. Even Justin Trudeau grabs a little face time for a 12 Days of Christmas sketch, as you can see in the clip above.
