From Downton to EastEnders, the TV shows you have to watch this Christmas

As Chris Rea sits in his Ferrari, stuck a traffic jam, humming merrily to himself, we can safely assume that on top of all the general stuff – family, a big fridge, many cheeses – one of the things he is most looking forward to is the hours and hours of special telly that he can enjoy when he finally gets home for Christmas.

But where to start with so much choice?

Well Chris worry not, we have curated the very best seasonal TV so you don’t have to go through the double Radio Times with your highlighter.
