It’s the most wonderful time of the year (again), and as usual it’s getting to those last few weeks before the big day when creative ideas and planning make way for frantic grabs at whatever is left on the shelves after the Black Friday zombie hordes have cleared everything out.
But fear not: because the best of Christmas is watching movies, re-watching old TV specials and trying hard to forget that George Lucas ever decided that anyone wanted a Star Wars Christmas show, there’ll always be a helping hand round these parts for those who want it.
So if you’re buying for a difficult brother, a picky sister or just for the film, gaming or TV fan in your life, what follows is a compendium of the finest gift ideas for this year’s festivities, as usual there are massive opportunities to win most of what has been included… »

We asked Den Of Geek’s writers to recommend brilliant comedy shows that deserve to have more of a fuss made about them. Here they are...
Banging a drum about stuff we love is more or less our remit on Den Of Geek - hence what many readers have started referring to as the ‘inexplicably regular' appearance of Statham, squirrels and Harold Bishop from Neighbours on these pages.
To that end then, we asked our writers which comedy shows (past and present, UK or otherwise, on TV, radio, or online…) deserved more praise, and here are the ones they chose. You might already like them too, or you might discover something new to dig out and enjoy. That’s the fun of it.

Give Out Girls stars Vickers and Him & Her's Kerry Howard, and was co-written by Tony MacMurray and Hatty Ashdown. It follows a group of four girls who work in promotions and carry out roles like handing out free light bulbs to commuters.

We told you back in August about the project but I don’t think even we could have predicted such a stellar line up because if the trailer is anything to go by, it’s going to be a good one! Starring James Nesbitt and Another Earth’s Brit Marling, it follows a young American named Liz Garvey (Marling) as she is hired to “revolutionise” the public image of London’s police force.
It is written by Sam Bain and Jesse Armstrong, known for their work on Smack The Pony, That Mitchell And Webb Look and the rather brilliant Four Lions. This is not the only TV project Boyle has been working on, he has also been working on Telemark over in the States alongside Slumdog Millionaire writer Simon Beaufoy…Boyle’s a busy fella isn’t he? »
