There's plenty in store for TV viewers this Christmas Day, including a new arrival at the Queen Vic, a royal appearance in Downton and the arrival of a new Doctor.

TalkTalk has outlined its TV highlights for December 25th, with YouView customers able to enjoy a host of top films and shows on Freeview.


One of the programmes to look forward to on Christmas Day is 'Doctor Who: The Time of the Doctor' at 7:30pm on BBC One - a festive special featuring Matt Smith and Peter Capaldi as the regenerated incarnation.

Over on ITV1, viewers can enjoy a two-hour 'Downton Abbey' special at 8:30pm.

While Edith faces decision time over whether or not to keep her baby, Rose is presented to the King at Buckingham Palace as part of her ‘coming out’.

TalkTalk TV viewers can also enjoy festive episodes of 'Call the Midwife', 'Mrs Brown's Boys', 'Strictly Come Dancing' and Alan Carr's chat show.

Then, of course, there's the Christmas Day soaps to look forward to.

In 'Eastenders', Danny Dyer makes his first appearance as landlord of The Queen Victoria, while Radio 1 DJ Nick Grimshaw also features in a cameo role.

Over on ITV, in 'Coronation Street', Kylie Platt hits rock bottom in the wake of her split from her husband David. But will she end up spending Christmas alone?

TalkTalk TV viewers can also choose between a number of films on Freeview through their YouView-based service.

'Toy Story 3' - the final part of the popular Pixar trilogy - airs at 3:10pm on BBC One.

When the toys are mistakenly delivered to a day-care centre instead of the attic before Andy leaves for college, it's up to Woody to lead the journey home.

And 'Tangled' airs on ITV at 3:20pm - telling the tale of the long-haired Rapunzel who has spent her entire life in a tower.

Households with a YouView-based TalkTalk TV service can also enjoy on-demand films and television shows this Christmas, plus seven-day catch-up services.
