Christmas song or Christmas special

It’s Christmas Eve Eve, and in less than 48 hours’ time we’ll have seen Last Christmas. Now I’ve blethered about Christmas Specials many’s a time before now (example) but of course that title gives me an idea: Find random list of favourite Christmas songs and imagine what Doctor Who stories named after them might look like.

Fairytale Of New York, The Pogues and Kirsty MacColl
A couple arguing through the season find a little magic. Featuring the Ponds, of course.

Driving Home For Christmas, Chris Rea
22nd century colonists heading back to Earth as their rotation ends, lost in the dark of space and needing a light to guide the way.

Happy Christmas (War Is Over), John Lennon
The trenches of the Great War, 1914, and the impromptu Christmas truce that still inspires us a century later. (Already visited by a few Doctors in other media. See also Stop The Cavalry by Jonah Lewie... as referenced in...)

I Wish It Could Be Christmas Every Day, Wizzard (is that where Terry Pratchett got that?)
A poorly worded request leads to a time loop of family, presents and the Queen’s Speech. Can the travellers find the subtle differences in each example and break the loop? Boxing Day will never be more welcome...

That’ll Be Christmas, Thea Gilmore
Like Rose in 2005, the characters find themselves landing in the middle of a family Christmas with no warning. Of course, they do have access to a time machine...
