After nearly a year living under Covid–19 restrictions, with her husband gone and no-one but pet dog Bobo for company, Betty is left contemplating her first Christmas spent alone. Missing her family, Betty extends a virtual hand to her sister Isa in Fort William, whose larger-than-life personality might be just what she needs to chase away her lockdown blues.
Alone Part III will be available at 9pm on 26 December 2020.
