Cumberbatch, Dench and Okenado in the BBCs stunning Hollow Crown (Handout)

Tara Ward reviews the best of the small screen's festive offerings.

The Hollow Crown
Benedict Cumberbatch, Dame Judie Dench and Sophie Okenado star in a spectacular, sexed-up version of Shakespeare's Plantagenets (Lightbox, December 19).

Quizmas
Kiwi Celebs present the year in review in the style of a pub quiz (Duke, Boxing Day)

Victoria 
A 'one off' Victoria Christmas special. Your standard Boxing Day costume drama (TVNZ1, Boxing Day)

All Aboard the Sleigh Ride
No commentary no music a two-hour ride through the arctic tundra. Slow TV, done the Norwegian way. A peaceful escape from the festive season (BBC Knowledge, Christmas Eve).
