First look at What We Did on Our Holiday


First look at What We Did on Our Holiday, the new family feature film from the creators of Outnumbered which stars Billy Connolly, Rosamund Pike, David Tennant, Ben Miller, and Amelia Bullmore.

Bobby Smalldridge, Emilia Jones and Harriet Turnbull star as the three McLeod children.

12 year old Emilia Jones (represented by ARG Talent) plays Lottie. Emilia was Alice in Channel 4's Utopia and played Young Fiona in Shrek in the West End. She is currently filming alongside Michael Caine in Italian feature film The Early Years.

Bobby Smalldridge (represented by the Sylvia Young Agency) played Small Boy in Billy Eliot in the West End and has filmed episodes of Miss Marple, Casualty and Topsy and Tim. He played the part of Samuel in the 2011 film, Foster with Ioan Gruffudd and Toni Collette.

The film also introduces newcomer Harriet Turnbull as Jenni, the youngest McLeod.


The dysfunctional McLeod family venture to the Highlands for ‘Scottish Grandad’s’ birthday, but no-one could have predicted what the children would get up to…

Doug and Abi are two normal parents with three charming but highly eccentric children. When the strain of parental life threatens their sanity and marriage, they decide to take their kids on a trip to Scotland for a big family gathering and to see Doug’s incomparably kooky father Gordie.

However what promised to be a holiday of reconciliation soon turns into a hilarious social minefield as feuds, misunderstandings and bruised egos become the order of the day.

When the children cause a completely unexpected turn of events, the family are forced to put aside their differences and work together or else risk losing what they hold most dear.


From the creators of hit BBC comedy series Outnumbered, What We Did On Our Holiday is described as a heart-warming, uplifting comedy for all the family.

It is written and directed by Guy Jenkin and Andy Hamilton and produced by David M Thompson and Dan Winch for BBC Films and Origin Pictures with backing from Creative Scotland.

What We Did On Our Holiday is due to be released in the UK on Friday September 26th 2014.
