Best Ever Christmas TV Specials | Blogmas

December 21st, 2020


Hi Readers!

Every year, one thing I look forward to is the Christmas specials of my favourite TV shows! Every year there’s something to get excited about, and the family gathering around to watch it always creates lovely Christmas memories. Here are some of my favourites.

// Doctor Who: The Christmas Invasion //

David Tennants first proper bout at being the Doctor, and he stole all of our hearts this Christmas. And then went on to shatter them five years later!

// Downton Abbey (Season 2) //

I mean, you’d have to be heartless not to gush over this episode! It’s the one Christmas special that has all the festive feels.

// Victoria //

They only ever did one Christmas special, but it was so festive that it’s enough to keep me going each Christmas. It explores how Victoria and Albert popularised the Christmas Tree.

// Outnumbered (All Of Them) //

If you want a hilariously relatable Christmas special, this would be the one. This shows all the stresses of Christmas and also the wonderful innocence of children.

// Great Festive Bake Off //

I love that they’ve started doing this every year. Seeing old bakers come back and bake festive treats is a must watch every Christmas for me.

// Gilmore Girls (Season 2) //

I just love this scene of Jess and Rory in the horse and carriage whilst it’s snowing around them. I’m such a Jess stan, so this episode was made for me!

// Gavin and Stacey Christmas Specials //

We’ve been gifted with two of these treasures now, and both are incredible! If you haven’t watched Gavin and Stacey, it’s such a feel good TV Show, it’s a must watch if you’re feeling stressed and just want something with great dead-pan humour. It’s basically a love story between to people and how it brings two very different families together.

// The Goes Wrong Show (2018 & 2019) //

If you haven’t watched this yet, you absolutely have to get on it. It’s based on a stage play and it’s literally what the name says. Everything in this show ‘goes wrong’ and makes for some hilariously awkward moments for the cast. It’s silly slapstick comedy and is perfect for Christmas!

What I’m Looking Forward To This Christmas!

The Goes Wrong Show: The Nativity! – Can’t wait for this to have me in stitches again this Christmas!

Ghosts Christmas Special – This was one of my favourite TV shows of this year, so getting a Christmas special was fantastic news for me! This will also have me and my family in stitches, I’m sure.

Roald & Beatrix: The Tail of the Curious Mouse – This looks so adorable! It’s airing Christmas Eve and is about an encounter Roald Dahl had with Beatrix Potter when he was a kid.

Call The Midwife – I mean, it’s become a Christmas staple, hasn’t it? It’s one of those shows that will make us feel all the emotions. My entire family loves it and it’s a great way to spend Christmas evening.

Bridgerton – I’ve been reading the book bit by bit since last Monday. It’s so good that I just want to savour every moment. I can’t believe I had never heard of it before. I’m very excited to see how they’ve adapted it, it looks amazing.

Death To 2020 – Still not sure what this is going to look like, but I’m intrigued.

Doctor Who: Revolution Of the Daleks – Another staple for every Christmas, although recently they’ve moved it to New Years Eve which I’m not a particular fan of but I’ll still be watching it for sure. I think this is Bradley Walsh’s last episode which I’m gutted about, but it does look like a great episode.

  1. Doctor Who: The Christmas Invasion is like the best Christmas episode ever. I was devastated after Nine and without this episode, I could never warm up to Ten. Nine is still my Doctor but I also love Ten thanks to this episode and the other episodes of Ten. 🙂
