Shows Like Poirot: Agatha Christie and Her Admirers

A round-up of mysteries, written by Agatha Christie or inspired by the grande dame of crime mysteries. These series often feature citizen sleuths who solve crimes in their spare time. Lighthearted and breezy, they are perfect for watching in front of a roaring fire, preferably with a warm pot of tea close to hand. Note that a few of the more recent interpretations are darker fare, and may not appeal to Poirot fans. If you're looking for darker adaptations of the Queen of Mystery's classics, see our list "Modern Takes on Agatha Christie," and if you like the lighter fare, try "Cozy British Detective Shows."

Throwback British Crime TV

A round up of pre-2000 British crime and police series, including classics like The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, Poirot, Edge of Darkness, and Cracker.

Shows like Murdoch Mysteries: Lighthearted Historical Mysteries

Nothing too heavy in these mysteries set in the days when detectives had to solve crimes without the benefit of security cameras, DNA, and standardized time-keeping (seriously, think about all those pocket-watches).
