CASTLE, Channel 7, 9.45pm
SEND the children from the room – Santa Claus has fallen out of the sky and is now dead. Castle says he fell off his sleigh, which is clearly what would’ve happened after he was shot in the back with a .38. But more worrying is Beckett’s refusal to be involved with any of Castle’s high-pressure Christmas traditions. But even his glamourpuss mother and clingy daughter are resisting this year. He’s close to a breakdown over it.
