Doctor Who and The League of Gentlemen previews for North of England

Although, viewers elsewhere in the country might not agree with this, a BBC spokesman has defended their decision, and told The Telegraph: "We work hard to serve audiences across the United Kingdom and have a long-term commitment to doing more in northern England".

The Doctor Who Christmas special will be screened first in multiple venues in the north of England ahead of its BBC premiere on Christmas Day. This year's episode will feature Peter Capaldi as the Doctor for the last time.

Twice Upon a Time isn't the only special available on the tour, with screenings in Hartlepool and York showing the Christmas episode as part of a double-bill with the first of the three-part League of Gentlemen reunion special.

The special will see Peter Capaldi in his final appearance as the Doctor before he hands over the reins to Jodie Whittaker - who will be the 13th Doctor.

Fans will not get a glimpse of Whittaker's reincarnation however, with the last few moments of the episode being kept a surprise until the Christmas Day broadcast on BBC One.

Much-loved comedy The League of Gentlemen returns to BBC Two this Christmas with three brand-new episodes to celebrate the group's 20th anniversary at the BBC.

Mark Gatiss appears in both shows, guesting as the Captain in Doctor Who and alongside Steve Pemberton and Reece Shearsmith in the comedy series they all wrote with Jeremy Dyson.

The Highway Rat, produced by Magic Light Pictures, is an animated version of the Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler favourite about a greedy rat who steals food.

Ninety per cent of tickets will be allocated to postcodes in northern England and the surrounding area, while the other ten per cent will go to the rest of the UK.
