CBBC’s hit family show Dodger is back for an action-packed Christmas Special! Set at Christmas Eve, the gang return under the watchful eye of Fagin (Christopher Eccleston).

This Christmas Dodger (Billy Jenkins) attempts his most daring mission ever – he’s going to break into Number 10 Downing Street, home of the Prime Minister William Lamb (Robert Lindsay) and Countess Cowper (Jane Horrocks). With police stationed at every turn and a very special Christmas party going on inside, it’s not going to be easy. But the ever-intrepid Dodger has given his word to the kind toymaker (Anita Dobson) that he’ll retrieve her precious doll, which is nestled under the Prime Minister’s Christmas tree!

Meanwhile, Polly (Ellie-May Sheridan) has a plan to put a goose on the gang’s Christmas table. It’s all going well until Bullseye shows up. A goose herder he ain’t…

Dodger is produced by Universal International Studios, a division of Universal Studio Group. It is written by Rhys Thomas, who also directs, and Lucy Montgomery. Mark Freeland is Executive Producer for Universal International Studios and Amy Buscombe is Executive Producer for the BBC. It was commissioned for CBBC by Sarah Muller.
