Doctor Who, The Great Christmas Bake Off and Jonathan Creek Christmas air dates confirmed

Christmas can only mean one thing...Christmas specials and there is the usual splendour of one-off shows to keep us all entertained over the festive period. The BBC have released their schedule and there are some juicy offerings available.

Christmas Day will see BBC 1 The Great Christmas Bake Off air at 4.45pm, followed by the Doctor Who Christmas special The Return of Doctor Mysterio an hour later at 5.45pm. We're fans of both shows here at The Digital Fix.

The second and final The Great Christmas Bake Off will air on Boxing Day at 7pm, which will see the last farewell of Mel, Sue and Mary (Paul will be there before he heads off for the new version of Bake Off over on Channel 4). Other festive specials on Boxing Day include a long-awaited return of Outnumbered for a one-off special on BBC 1 at 10pm. The 27th December we also see Jonathan Creek back for a new 90-minute special at 9pm on BBC 1

Plus, we'll be getting new Sherlock starting on New Year's Day!

Check out the details on these shows and more over at The Radio Times, where they've handily collated the air dates for every show over Christmas...
