Christmas Gets a Little More Crowded

While the BBC has yet to confirm a Doctor Who Christmas special for 2011, rival network ITV is bringing out their heavy hitter for Christmas Day with a Christmas special for Downton Abbey.

I've watched the first two parts of Downton on Masterpiece the last two weeks (which, I think, corresponds roughly to the first three episodes), and I've enjoyed it greatly. I have to admit, though, that when watching a British costume drama I half expect to see the TARDIS lurking unobtrusively in the background.

Would Downton air in the same timeslot as Who, or would it air a little later so the two series wouldn't go head-to-head? And who would win if they did go head-to-head? Honestly, much as I love Who, I'd put my money on Downton.
