There's lots of festive family fun to be had this Christmas and nestling down on a comfy sofa with a mince pie for all the special programmes and films is one of them.
There's plenty for everyone to watch, from comedy, drama, films and adaptations from channels like ITV, BBC and Channel 4.
Sci-fi fans will be thrilled to know Doctor Who will be returning and this time he has a superhero friend in tow.
Channel 4 are dialling up the cuteness with their retelling of We're Going on a Bear Hunt - a favourite children's book.
Whilst ITV are providing the charm of quaint English drama with Granchester and and a traditional whodunnit with Maigret's Dead Man.
Here's your guide to the highlights of Christmas TV.
We're Going on a Bear Hunt, Channel 4 7:30pm
Wiggle into your wellies, wrap up warm and step into the snow for a wonderful animated adventure. Based on the bestselling children's book, written by Michael Rosen, We're Going on a Bear Hunt follows the adventures of siblings Stan, Katie, Rosie, Max, the baby and Rufus the dog, who decide one day to set off on an expedition in search of bears. Coming up against a host of obstacles, the family ventures through a whirling snowstorm, thick oozy mud and a big dark forest on their journey. But when Rosie and Rufus become detached from the rest of the party it looks like bear hunting might not be such fun after all and the whole thrilling journey has to be done in reverse as the children race back to the safety of their warm home. Olivia Colman, Pam Ferris and Mark Williams provide the voices.

It's the week before Christmas 1954, and the forecast is snow in the beautiful Cambridge village of Grantchester.

Sidney loves her but there is no way he can be with her.
