The official series site has confirmed that The Christmas Invasion will take place on Christmas Day. The site says “no time slot has currently been confirmed”
Today’s announcement comes in the wake on a report in today’s edition of ‘The Sun’ which claimed the BBC were likely to pair the special with the traditional festive editions of EastEnders to deliver a ratings triple blow to ITV.
Christmas schedules are usually kept under wraps until the last minute as the two main broadcasters vie for supremacy in the ratings war.
