    I'm looking forward to Call the Midwife, as they always do great Christmas specials and I just love that show! :)

    I am also looking forward to Would I Lie To You. Just the entire series 11 of it, to be honest! Think it starts next month. :D

    I've never seen Call The Midwife, don't think it would be my type of show :o

    I love Would I Lie To You, it's very funny.

    Ordeal from Innocence has been pulled from BBC1 schedules pending investigation of allegations against one of its lead actors Ed Westwick.

    I was looking forward to an Agatha Christie \ murder mystery over the mince pies...

    "Dr Who", "QI" and "Upstart Crow" are the only things I can see myself watching from that line up. Other half will be going for "Still Open All Hours" and "Bake Off". Kids are with us this year so tv will be kept to a minimum anyway.

    Kinda disappointed that Highway Rat is the latest Julia Donaldson adaptation. There's better books IMO.

    Netflix are adding the Back to The Future Trilogy to its library on December 14th.

    I adore those movies, proper Christmassy.

    Rté have announced their highlights for Christmas.

    There’s someone serious cracking movies.
