I notice Channel 4 is again screening the Christmassy Ted episode of Father Ted. Which episode of a TV series (as opposed to one-offs such as The Snowman) has been screened most often on one of the five main TV channels?
I would have thought the episode of the Tom & Jerry cartoon The Night Before Christmas must be one of the screened episodes – it seemed to be on every Christmas Eve until a few years ago.

Surely it has to be that episode of Only Fools and Horses? You all must know which one I mean.

It must be that episode of Match Of The Day where Manchester United get a dodgy penalty and a last-minute winner at Old Trafford. »
Harry Potter actor David Bradley will be among those to get an honorary degree from Warwick University in the summer of 2012.
Yorkshire-born Bradley, who lives in Stratford-upon-Avon and received the Laurence Olivier Award in 1991 for his role in King Lear at the Royal National Theatre, has been in numerous stage, TV and film productions.
He is particularly well-known for playing Hogwarts caretaker Argus Filch in the Harry Potter films.
And it's been revealed that David is set to appear as Solomon in the second episode of the next Doctor Who series.
He previously voiced Shansheeth Blue in the story Death of the Doctor in spin-off The Sarah Jane Adventures.
