There’s nothing more Chrsitmasy than mince pies, presents and laser battles. Well, not on planet SFX anyway. What could be better as the nights draw in and the fairy lights go up than a Christmas-themed episode of your favourite telefantasy show…?

Oh, okay, they’re not all great. A lot of them have been schmaltzy nonsense. But there have been some brilliant ones too.

So what were your favourites? Here’s your chance to tell us, and we’ll reveal the results on the site Christmas Eve. You can nominate up to five episodes from the list below, or even suggest your own (because there are bound to be a few we’ve forgotten). If you’re having trouble remembering which Chrissy X-Files episode was which, we’ve provided links to episode guides at the bottom.
