Motherland hasn’t been seen on BBC One since its third season came to a close last year. So fans cannot wait to get all the gossip from this one-off special which sees the west London parents tackle the holidays. Here’s everything there is to know about the cast of Motherland in Last Christmas.

Who is in the Motherland Christmas special cast?

Julia – Anna Maxwell Martin

Julia offers to host Christmas at her house for the first time, leaving her friends confused but more than willing to attend.

She has also been in Netflix’s dark comedy After Life as Kath.
