Today's roundup of festive treats features Christmas tunes and a new look at a classic sitcom
Kicking off this year’s Christmas specials, four celebrities face the big black chair to face questions on their specialist subjects. Tonight boxer Ricky Hatton, chef Tony Singh, Father Ted star Ardal O’Hanlon and antiques expert Kate Bliss face John Humphrys’ tough questioning.
We’re Doomed! The Dad’s Army Story
Today it seems ridiculous that the creators of comedy classic Dad’s Army struggled to get it made. This one-off sitcom looks at the challenges Jimmy Perry and David Croft came up against, from BBC management scepticism to focus groups. Paul Ritter stars as Perry alongside Richard Dormer as Croft, while John Sessions appears as Arthur Lowe.
It might be the concluding part of this mini series, but DCI Luther (Idris Elba) still has a lot of problems to solve. Still dogged by ghosts from his past, he’s struggling to keep it together. Benny’s hacking skills have uncovered a list of hundreds of potential victims of the cannibalistic killer, but Luther must put himself and his new colleague Emma (Rose Leslie) in the face of danger to stop the horrific murders.
Michael Bublé’s Christmas 2015
If Luther is a bit intense for your tastes, Canadian crooner Michael Bublé is back for a fifth year of Christmas music and comedy.
As well as singing Christmas crackers Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas and Here Comes Santa Claus, Bublé will be joined by famous friends including William Shatner, Eva Longoria and Kylie Jenner for comedy segments filmed around Hollywood.
