As almost everyone's travel plans have been cancelled this year thanks to the flipping pandemic, there'll be more time to stay at home. And with no aunts, uncles and extended family able to pop in to spread the festive cheer, that leaves more time to spend watching your favourite movies and shows. If that happens to be classic 'Doctor Who', we have some suggestions for you. Our list of adventures from each 1963-89 Doctor are guaranteed to go really well with a mince pie, and even a glass of mulled wine if you're old enough and really want to indulge yourself.

‘The Mind Robber’ (1968)

“Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without any presents,” grumbled Jo, lying on the rug. The opening line of Louisa May Alcott’s ‘Little Women’ features in this Second Doctor story, which is set in the Land of Fiction. Christmas is certainly a time for fantastical tales and for enjoying a bit of literature. All these ideas combine in this one, where all five episodes can be enjoyed! For a bit of extra Patrick Troughton, why not dust down your DVD of the 1984 BBC serial ‘The Box of Delights’, in which the veteran actor plays Cole Hawlings, a magical Punch and Judy man? It’s set at Christmastime and has a strong Christmas theme running throughout it. Magical for those who were children at the time, it’s now a nostalgic Yuletide treat.
