The Christmas edition of TV Times has landed on the doorstep of CRT Towers and, even though we are loathe to even entertain it house room, we couldn't resist a quick peep inside.

Plenty of coverage of the Doctor Who extravaganza The End Of Time, with it getting 'Pick Of The Day' from the team for Christmas Day. Scans of the double page coverage are below.

There's also a page each to two, at least for us, other highlights of the Christmas viewing experience, An Englishman In New York - a sequel to The Naked Civil Servant which has been sitting on the shelves at ITV since late last year - and Day Of The Triffids - a new two part BBC adaptation of Wyndham's SF classic.

It does worry us somewhat that Vanessa Redgrave, who has a role in the adaptation, describes it thus, 'At its heart, this is a love story'. Oh, God.

Our annual battle with the schedules and our recommendations for the Xmas and New Year programmes that will hopefully induce more than a telly smile is imminent. You have been warned.
