These are my early Xmas Day overnight predictions:
Doctor Who 8.2m
Royle Family 8.9m
Paul O'Grady 4.3m
I posted mine nearly a fortnight ago....
I said then that SCD could well get top overnight. Downton will win overall though,again.

While quite often I am a critic of the BBC, I couldn't fault their sports coverage this year and it shows why they continue to get the rights to Wimbledon and the Olympics.
Is the death of the monarch considered sport now?
