Christmas TV makes the festive season. Along with Michael Bublé, panic buying Christmas presents for dad, and sampling all the Christmas coffees on offer, the TV specials that air in December and into the New Year are the perfect excuse for getting cosy on the sofa. And over the years, we've seen some real Christmas crackers.

Who can forget the dramatic cliffhanger ending of "Gavin and Stacey"'s Christmas special? Or the laugh-out-loud turmoil of Geraldine Granger eating four Christmas lunches in "The Vicar of Dibley"? And we can't be the only ones still wishing people a "Happy Christmukkuh" after "The OC"'s Christmas episode, can we?

From hilarious scripts to heartwarming magic, Christmas TV just hits differently. Or perhaps it's the three glasses of Baileys we've had beforehand. Before scheduling time to rewatch "Love Actually" and invest in the new Christmas TV for 2023, take a watch down memory lane ahead with some of the best Christmas specials and TV episodes we've seen over the years and where to watch them now.
