We’ve taken a pen to the UK Christmas TV and radio schedules and circled the shows we’re looking forward to. Add yours below!
Amid the cosy repeats, big movies and inescapable cranberry-stuffed cookery shows on TV this month are a few original gems. Reece Shearsmith
and Steve Pemberton
’s Inside No. 9
festive special The Devil Of Christmas (Tuesday the 27th of December, 10pm, BBC Two
) is top of our must-watch list. Hot on its heels is Yonderland
’s family friendly Yonder Yuletide (Saturday the 24th of December, 6.30pm, Sky One
). Another for families on Sky is the Christmas Day Jasper Fforde
adaptation The Last Dragonslayer, while Channel 4
has the non-festive-but-essential-for-fans-of smart-sci-fi Humans
series two finale (Sunday the 18th of December, 9pm).
