Known in Britain as a "Christmas Special" (not to be confused with a ChristmasSpecial, a series or franchise based on Christmas itself), the Christmas Episode is a one-off seasonal episode of an ongoing series, typically a comedy or comedy drama. Sometimes the Christmas Episode will be shown in two or three parts over consecutive nights, typically in the build-up to Christmas Day. Only the most popular shows get shown on Christmas Day itself.

During the 1980s and 1990s, British Christmas specials usually took place in some decidedly un-Christmassy part of the world such as Florida (''OnlyFoolsAndHorses'') or Majorca (''BirdsOfAFeather''). This has proven unpopular in recent years.
