Doctor Who: The Doctor, The Widow and the Wardrobe
Sunday 25th Dec, BBC One, 7-8pm
For sci-fi fans, this is a must see. As I understand it, this year's episode is based very loosely on The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe by CS Lewis, but featuring a Wood King. Click the link above for some spoiler pics and trailers.

This one is a lavish new screen adaptation of Charles Dickens' classic story, in which the orphan Pip becomes a gentleman when his life is transformed by a mystery benefactor. Starring Gillian Anderson and David Suchet, it looks visually stunning - I can't wait!

Children (or big children like me) will love this family adventure based on the classic children's books by Mary Norton. Unfortunately its not the 90s version which I'm familiar with, but there are lots of big names starring in this one like Stephen Fry, Victoria Wood, and Christopher Eccleston.

This is the charmingly sweet animated classic of Raymond Briggs' story about a young boy that is whisked off to the North Pole by a snowman come to life.
As always, there are some films that I love to watch even if they're not scheduled to be on, such as Elf, and A Nightmare Before Christmas. What do you like to watch at Christmas?
