Eastenders (v Downton) 8pm, Christmas Day, BBC 1

We know you're going to watch Eastenders, so you might as well just drop the act. The London-based soap was the most-watched thing on Christmas Day last year, and given that Danny Dyer is turning up with a big dog to take over the iconic Vic pub, we'd expect similar numbers to tune right in. Why can't there just be a nice Christmas in East London, hey? How about no deaths or divorces this year? This clashes with Downton. Controversial.
