Christmas TV guide 2020: Every festive special on BBC, ITV and Channel 4 this year


There’s no doubt that Christmas this year is bound to feel a little different amid the ongoing pandemic, but at least we have some TV to look forward to. 

For many, watching Christmas specials is as much a part of the holiday tradition as putting up the Christmas tree. While much has fallen through this year due to Covid-19, the BBC, ITV, and Channel 4 have managed to pull together a holiday schedule worth noting.

The Vicar of Dibley and 8 Out of 10 Cats will provide much-needed doses of laughter. Meanwhile, fans can look forward to the annual Christmas specials of Call the Midwife and of course, Doctor Who. This year’s episode will see Jodie Whittaker’s Doctor and her crew go up against government-endorsed Daleks running rampant in London.

Below is a list of Christmas specials you can expect to see on BBC, ITV and Channel 4 this festive season. Happy viewing!
