The Den of Geek Christmas 2017 UK TV and radio guide

Louisa Mellor Dec 13, 2017

We’ve taken a highlighter to this year’s Christmas and New Year TV schedules and circled what we’ll be watching this festive season…

Amid the cosy repeats and cranberry-stuffed cookery shows on TV over the next few weeks are a few gems. There’s no Sherlock or Charlie Brooker’s TV Wipe this year, but there are plenty of treats, not least the return of The League Of Gentlemen for a three-part anniversary series and Peter Capaldi’s last hurrah in the Tardis in the Doctor Who Christmas episode.

Over on Netflix, six new episodes of Black Mirror are coming to usher in the New Year, two days into which we welcome the return of Reece Shearsmith and Steve Pemberton’s genius anthology Inside No. 9.

Not to gloss over a spooky M.R. James night on BBC Four,

Divorce” was nothing if not unique when it debuted in the winter of 2016. Dark, unflinching, and with a black sense of humor, Sarah Jessica Parker’s return to HBO dug into the nitty gritty details of an act nearly half of America’s married population will go through during their lives. Some viewers weren’t ready to deal with it, but those who were experienced a meticulous 10-episode investigation into the depths of long-term pain and newfound freedom.

Season 2 looks to capitalize more on the latter. As Parker’s divorcee Frances notes in the opening seconds of the new trailer, her divorce isn’t a bummer: It’s a fresh start.

‘Divorce’ Season 2 Trailer: Sarah Jessica Parker Plays The Dating Game

Created by comedic powerhouse Sharon Horgan (Amazon‘s “Catastrophe” — watch it) and starring two long time beloved actors with Sarah Jessica Parker and Thomas Haden Church, the first season of “Divorce” didn’t bring the hype that HBO seemed to be betting on. With Parker back on the channel that brought her to the spotlight with the immeasurably inspiration “Sex and the City” (its legacy somewhat tarnished due to the ill conceived film spin offs), it should’ve been a sure fire bet, drawing in both her older crowd, fans of the series, and newbies who were intrigued in seeing an “American Sweetheart” type play someone with a bit more of a foul tongue.

Motherland: a vision of child rearing that is panic-inducingly scary

There’s something exhilarating about how Sharon Horgan, Graham Linehan and co don’t even try to make these people likable

‘I really want the children to be brought up like I was – by my mother,” sighed Julia in last year’s pilot episode of Motherland (7 November, 10pm, BBC2). Now she’s back for a full series and her life still stinks. Motherland is a six-part illustration of the unadulterated hogwash that is the concept of “having it all”. It’s Butterflies for the 21st century, where burnt rice puddings and the fantasy of an affair are small potatoes among working mothers for whom getting through the day without anyone dying is a triumph.

The best TV this week: Sharon Horgan and Graham Linehan's Motherland

An uproarious tale of school runs, alpha mums and child care starts on BBC2, while 1920s Berlin is the setting for Sky Atlantic’s latest drama

Last year’s pilot clearly wasn’t a fluke: this sitcom, created by Sharon Horgan and Graham Linehan, is an uproarious treat. Anna Maxwell Martin is Julia, a middle-class mother floundering through a suburban hell of caterpillar cakes, oversized kids’ parties and judgmental supermums. Diane “Philomena Cunk” Morgan offers support.

A Girl Is A Gun Trailer: Denise Richards Leads Feminist Grindhouse Series

There's a new streaming upstart in town called Blackpills USA. Originally a digital media firm that produced shortform video for millennials, the service is now available in the U.S. through Apple's App Store and Google Play.

The 25 Best TV Love Stories of The Last 25 Years
Love stories are often hard to execute on TV, because ongoing shows will try to manipulate romances for plot purposes — yet at the same time, it’s so easy to get hooked on a tale of two people finding each other. The couples featured below have undergone no shortage of strife as they forged their own unique paths, but one thing these narratives all have in common is that they illustrate the ways in which romance can be found in the most unexpected of circumstances, and how it can become the foundation of something so much bigger and profound.

Phillip and Elizabeth Jennings, “The Americans”

They met as strangers, but the complicated relationship between these two Russian agents has never lacked for passion and love, even as they find themselves tied up with other partners. Their ultimate fate could go in a lot of different directions, but for right now

Heather Graham Reflects on Her Career and Desire to Portray More 'Smart, Strong' Characters (Exclusive)
Growing up, Heather Graham was sure she wanted to be the next Meryl Streep.

"If someone made me cry, I thought that was the ultimate achievement," the 47-year-old actress tells Et, laughing. "I just felt like, 'I want to be in really depressing films that will win an Academy Award.' And then I thought, 'I don't, really -- I just want to laugh and find the humor in things.'"

After starring in 1988's teen adventure film License to Drive and Gus Van Sant's acclaimed crime drama Drugstore Cowboy, released a year later -- "It helped me feel like a legitimate actress," she says -- Graham became a bona fide dude-comedy staple, starring alongside some of the era’s most celebrated comedic actors: Vince Vaughn in 1996's Swingers, Mike Myers in 1999's Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me, and Zach Galifianakis and Bradley Cooper in two of three Hangover films.
