When is The Madame Blanc Mysteries Christmas special on TV?

The 2023 Madame Blanc Mysteries Christmas special will air on Channel 5 on Friday, 22 December at 9PM.

As Christmas approaches in Sainte Victoire, Judith and Jeremy plan a thrilling evening for their friends – a murder mystery night at the historically eerie Hotel Sanguinet.

The group, including Jean, Dom, Caron, Judith, Jeremy, and Gloria, sets off on a mini road trip, journeying about an hour from Sainte Victoire to their destination. Upon arrival at Hotel Sanguinet, they are greeted by Jeremy’s friends and the struggling owners of the hotel, Martin and Lydia, who are desperately seeking new investors to keep their business afloat. The hotel’s sole employee is the longstanding butler, Johnson, a legacy from the previous owner.

Jeremy’s prediction of a storm, based on a peculiar sensation in his big toe, comes true as a fierce tempest unleashes heavy rain upon the hotel. The murder mystery night, meant to be an entertaining charade, takes a sinister twist when a real murder occurs amidst the festivities.

While the others sleep, Jean, unsettled by the eerie atmosphere of the hotel, teams up with Dom to scour the hotel for clues under the cover of night. Their quest raises the crucial questions: Will Jean uncover the identity of the murderer? And can she solve the longstanding ghostly mysteries that have shrouded Hotel Sanguinet for years?
