What To Watch: 30/12/2011

Tonight is the night where Christmas Spirit dies.

Christmas is good for lots of things, but mainly for absolutely cracking TV. From the 19th December to the 1st January, we’ll be giving you a daily report on what you should be watching.

The Many Faces of Judi Dench
8:00pm on BBC2
Ah, Judi Dench. She is one awesome lady. This documentary takes us through her many roles and has lots of her friends and people she has worked with telling stories about her.

Mrs Dickens’s Family Christmas
9:00pm on BBC2
Charles Dickens is the father of the traditional Christmas, but his real-life Christmas was nowhere near as jolly. Sue Perkins takes us through the real Dickens, who was egotistical, misogynistic and generally not a nice guy. So, perfect Christmas viewing, this.

Charlie Brooker’s 2011 Wipe
10:30pm on BBC4
Charlie Brooker is famous for his bile and his weekly spouting of hatred in The Guardian. Every year he does a sum up of what has happened in the past 12 months, and this is no exception.
