HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: Streaming on Netflix

Final Season Premiere
The Professor (Álvaro Morte) and his crew have their work cut out for them in the final episodes of Money Heist.

A Clüsterfünke Christmas

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: 7 p.m. on Comedy Central

In the large landscape of Holiday TV Movies, this one — about a big-city real estate exec who visits the quaint town of Clüsterfünke to develop a mega-resort — playfully celebrates the clichés and tropes of the genre. SNL alums Ana Gasteyer and Rachel Dratch wrote the script and star as the owners of the quaint Clüsterfünke Inn, where they're also baking whipping up delicious treats. "One of the things that we did kind of observe in watching a bunch of them is that you have two kinds of women in these movies," explains Gasteyer. "You have the young girl who's gonna come into town and clearly be married off, maybe... and then the old crones with Christmas wisdom and dewy-eyed mysticism. And the answer was pretty obvious [who we'd play]." And even though this was a movie set — not a live sketch show — Dratch says they still applied that shorthand to their scenes. "We tried to be earnest with the actual Hallmark movie of it all, the scenes between the couple and all that — we really wanted them to play it real and straight, not trying to be like wink, wink. But then stuff that we were in, there's definitely some sketch energy." —Gerrad Hall

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: 8 p.m. on BBC America

Season Finale
The pace of the British time travel show has quickened in the second half of the last season to star Jodie Whittaker as the titular two-hearted alien. Last Sunday's penultimate episode alone offered an info dump about the Doctor's origins, an alternative history of the earth-protecting U.N.I.T., and a series of 19th-century adventures featuring Mandip Gill's Yaz, John Bishop's Dan, and Kevin McNally's wonderfully-monikered Professor Eustacius Jericho. Plus? Well, enough other stuff to fill a TARDIS. Whovians should definitely find the time to see how many plot strands showrunner Chris Chibnall resolves ahead of the three 2022 specials that will represent his and Whittaker's swan song. —Clark Collis
