It’s a special Christmas edition of the MolksTVTalk TV Guide – so much Christmas. Awesome.

Kick your week off with the amazing Homeland season two finale and be prepared to be blown away.

Martin Freeman is set of turning his local Christmas play into a Hollywood blockbuster in Nativity!… what will everyone else make of it?

Meanwhile The Making of The Hobbit leads nicely(?) into the biggest of all family traditions with Karl Stefanovic & Lisa Wilkinson hosting Carols By Candlelight from the Sidney Myer Music Bowl.

Everyone’s other favourite Christmas movie National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation launches on us to remind us if nothing else that our families aren’t so bad after all (and there’s nothing a good kidnapping won’t solve anyway).

Nerds rejoice! ABC1 is bringing us all the Doctor Who Christmas Special as quickly as possible so that we can settle down on Boxing Day night and see the good Doctor solve all the Universe’s problems.

With that, the New Year is all but upon us…
