Bring Me Morecambe & Wise
1x05 Christmas [final episode]

The Great British Bake Off
Christmas Masterclass
[Watch it (again) in HD on iPlayer.]

Have I Got News For You
44x09 (14/12/12 edition; extended repeat)

5x13 The Diamond of the Day Part Two [series finale]
Well that surprised me -- I wasn't expecting anything nearly as definitive. They only announced it was the final finale recently, as if a sixth series was a genuine possibility. Perhaps they shot two endings? Who knows.

Never Mind the Buzzcocks
26x13 Christmas Special [season finale]

5x00 The Sick Party [Christmas special]
aka Mark Heap Christmas Special 1 of 3.
Took a while to get going, but it turned out OK. I think the kids are quite definitively too old for it now though -- Ben and Karen really seem to have shot up and matured in the last year. It would still be nice if they properly wrapped it up somehow, but I think it's time for that now.

The Snowman
I haven't watched this since I was very little, but it is still rather magical.
