Ranking the Santas

Ranking the Santas

By Tom Eames and Morgan Jeffery

Ho, ho, ho!

For this year’s Christmas special, we’re ranking the greatest screen Saint Nicks of all time.

Our five are:

Mel Smith (Father Christmas)Edmund Gwynne (Miracle on 34th Street)Richard Attenborough (Miracle on 34th Street)Tim Allen (The Santa Clause)David Huddleston (Santa Claus: The Movie). But which order will we pick them?

Plus, plenty of other honorable mentions, and a brief history of Santa as we know him. See, it’s an educational show too!

We also explain the difference between different types of Santa on screen, including ‘imposter Santas’ (eg Bad Santa).

Merry Christmas! Check out our previous Christmas-themed episodes here.
