I love the fact that a lot of the Christmas predictions have Miranda in them! I absolutely LOVE the show, and I really really hope that it's on.

Miranda did say on Twitter that it would be on tv at Christmas.

My fantasy/prediction:

3pm: HM the Queen
3.10-4.40pm: Shrek Forever After
4.40-5pm: BBC News and Weather
5-6pm: Doctor Who
6-7.30pm: Up!
7.30-8pm: EastEnders
8.30-9.00pm: Miranda
9-9.30pm: EastEnders
9.30-10.30pm: Call The Midwife

Notes: I know I've missed off Strictly, but viewing figures are down, and I think that it seems better suited to Christmas Eve. Call The Midwife is a better fit for the big day! Also, I've put the film on a bit later, as it's a big movie, and it could benefit from the Doctor Who lead in. Finally, I know that EastEnders have stopped doing two episodes on Christmas, but I prefer this as there can be a cliffhanger between the two episodes, and makes it feel like more of an event.

I hope there are some decent films on. Also hope Michael McIntyre is on again as I enjoyed that last year. As much as I dislike Michael Buble I did enjoy his christmas show, got me in the mood for Xmas.

Im about half way through my shopping...bring it on!

I don't want to see Royal Family.. I'd rather see a Christmas episode of Goodnight Sweetheart (That obviously won't be happening this year ;().

I would switch The Royle Family and Mrs Brown around, Royle Family is still the bigger and more established show.

I like most of that, but The Dark Knight at 10pm? Way too late! It would be good in a Primetime slot on Eve/Boxing Day. Also, I want to see Despicable Me, but so many good films are on BBC on Xmas day, I wouldn't be able to watch!

I think you're spot on there - although series 1 was hugely popular, it's not quite a Christmas Day show. I can see it on the last Sunday before Christmas, similar to how the BBC did a Lark Rise special in 2008 on Sunday 22nd.

They'd all be featured on a list I'd happily entitle .... 'Programmes to be avoided like yon plague'.

So no. To everything. Bar the news/weather.

And it's September 2nd. Why would you even mention the word 'xmas'?

Sadist.

Why do people keep saying that Call the Midwife isn't Christmas Day material? I don't think you could find a show that is so well suited! It's about births, and so is Christmas!

Also, I think ITV should do an X Factor Christmas special (pre-recorded of course), it would certainly give them an easy 8-10 million viewers, and I don't know why they haven't thought of this yet! Especially as SCD has been doing it for years...
