Deal Or No Deal?

Hi all is it me or was there some good Christmas programs on TV after Christmas.
The build up to Christmas the week before on TV was quite good then on Christmas day to me was poor.
Even on deal or no Deal on Christmas day the Christmas special was to be watched with no dressing up and a solitary tree in the back ground.
I don't watch the soaps maybe I should if they have a great Christmas spirit.
I know its for children and maybe things have changed in the past 60 years.

Nothing of any entertainment value on any channel, that wasn't a repeat. Luckily I had a good book to read, and I was able to spend a couple of hours entertainment on my motorcycle.
Sorry Sky but I will be leaving you in the New Year as it is a waste of money.

The days of having three main channels that would have a greater budget for quality Christmas programming are long gone.

The only TV I watched over Christmas was on Boxing Day after returning from a moorland walk with my nephew. We were both knackared, he had a shandy, I had a Malt (a bloody big one!), he turned the telly on... it was Dinosaur day on one of the history channels, we ended up watching about 3 hours of it, but it wasn't anything new.

All depends on what you want to watch.

But christmas specials of soaps and sitcoms don't do it for me.

Bring back Disney Time!!!

Dr.Who, on Christmas day, was by far the best thing on over Christmas.

Great stuff and Kylie in a pair of knee high boots, Grrrrrrrrrr..............

Extras was excellent. Intelligent comedy for a change. I can’t think of anything else that I enjoyed. Doctor Who was a big disappointment for me.

on any channel"

The BBC adaptation of Oliver Twist was superb.

The BBC adaptation of Oliver Twist was superb.

It was probably the best program of the year but it finished 3 days before the Christmas Day.

Yes FE I did watch and enjoy O Twist, but like paul says it was on before Christmas. Sorry paul no Euro.

Doesn't the wind play havoc with page turning;-)
