Christmas 2013 on the BBC New Video Highlights

Christmas 2013 on the BBC

Kat & Alfie, Rab C. Nesbitt, Mark Gatiss, Mary Berry and Stephen Fry will all be helping the BBC to celebrate Christmas this year, as it brings a dazzling array of talent to its screens over the festive season.

Danny Cohen, Director of Television, said: “Brilliant Christmas telly across Drama, Factual, Comedy, Entertainment and Religion is something licence-fee payers rightly expect from the BBC and this year’s holiday schedule delivers that.

“We have massive events such as the Doctor Who re-generation and the incredible return of Sherlock, as well as festive specials from hit shows including Strictly Come Dancing, Mrs Brown’s Boys, Call The Midwife, Bad Education, and the Great British Bake Off.

“And of course there are brand-new treats such as David Walliams’ Gangsta Granny and we’ll be showing a wide range of religious programming, including a live broadcast of The First Eucharist of Christmas from Westminster Abbey.”

In Albert Square, Danny Dyer arrives as new landlord of the Queen Vic, whilst Janine’s thoughts turn to murder. In another part of the East End, Jenny, Chummy and Sister Julienne confront a new enemy in Call The Midwife, before peace and love are restored. In The Time Of The Doctor, Clara and The Doctor must go to a quiet backwater planet in order to learn what some strange signals mean for his very existence, and it’s wedding day in Halifax for love struck Alan and Celia as their big day dawns. And the year’s biggest television mystery will at long last be answered – just how did Sherlock fake his own death?

    I have to agree, that is really not Doctor-ish. Captain Jack Harness-ish, yes, but DEFINITELY not Doctor-ish at all!

    He’s properly called the Doctor, but I guess you could call him Doctor Who. I call him the Doctor, as not to confuse with Dr. Who from the Amicus Dalek films or the First Question.

    Then thank heavens that Clara is a teacher now, and will educate him in a little bit of social decorum. Otherwise it will be the “naughty step” for him, or take away his sonic for a week.

    I think he’s going to make an agreement with them as ultimately they want the same thing (for the question to not be answered) so maybe he just convinces them that they don’t have to kill him and leads them to battle due to events in the story.

    I think this just shows that the doctor is an alien

    he dose not no what is appropriate and what is not

    Yes I’ve seen that, and to be quite honest I don’t like the idea of The Doctor giving Clara a playful slap on her derriere, or nates if you prefer, at all funny. I’ve got over all the snogging bits, but this is going too far.

    No, it’s ‘Death Comes to Pemberley’, another show she is starring in over Christmas.
