While his granddaughter Susan Campbell and great-grandson Alex Campbell were celebrating Christmas in the TARDIS with him and Lucie Miller, the Eighth Doctor wanted to watch the Queen's 1953 Christmas speech using the Time-Space Visualiser, as that was a "great year". (AUDIO: Relative Dimensions)
On Christmas Day 2006, the Queen's speech was cancelled after an invasion by the Sycorax resulted in the entire Royal Family standing on the edge of the roof of Buckingham Palace. It was replaced by a broadcast from Prime Minister Harriet Jones, pleading to the Doctor to help. (TV: The Christmas Invasion)
Wilfred Mott sat down to watch the Queen's speech in 2009, but was instead contacted by a mysterious woman. He asked if anyone else could see the woman, but his granddaughter Donna Noble replied that she thought the Queen should switch to trouser suits. (TV: The End of Time)
