Starz Original Dramas

While not as well known as HBO and Showtime, the premium network Starz has produced some high quality original dramas including Power, Black Sails and Outlander.

Shows like Jack Taylor: Irish Crime Shows

You can spot the Irish police, or the Garda to the locals, by their high visibility jackets that stand out in a crowd, which comes in handy for the criminals trying to avoid the long hand of the law. Oh, and to be clear, we focus on Island of Ireland, so some Northern Ireland shows to boot.

Shows like Broadchurch: Best British Crime

The birthplace of Sherlock Holmes has produced some of the greatest crime and detective series in recent years, including Peaky Blinders, Line of Duty, Happy Valley, Luther, Broadchurch and of course Sherlock--don't forget to check out related lists including British Women on the Case, Grizzled British Detectives, Cracking the (Inspector) Morse Code, and Agatha Christie and her Admirers.

Shows Like The Killing: Slow Burn Crime Investigations

Unlike shows that solve a crime a week, these investigations unfold over the course of an entire season--this list is for fans of True Detective (season 1), The Night of, and The Bridge.

Shows like Broadchurch: British Psychological Thriller Shows

Despite their polite exteriors and stiff upper lips, the Brits harbor a darker side that manifests itself in these dark series that are driven more by the characters' often tormented psychological states. Bonus includes some Irish and Australian series.

Shows like True Detective: Neo Noir TV

With these neo-noir series you can expect conflicted, world-weary antiheroes, grisly crimes, corrupt cops and politicians, and some dark humor to boot; just make sure you turn the brightness all the way up on your TV.

Shows like Terriers: Buddy Noir Detectives

Phillip Marlowe and Sam Spade worked alone, but imagine if they had teamed up, which is exactly what happens in these shows where detectives or private investigators team up to create noir duos.

Shows like The Killing: Inspired by Nordic Noir

If you love Scandinavian crime thrillers, but don't like subtitles (or speak Danish, Swedish, Norwegian) you'll enjoy this list of English language detective series inspired by Nordic Noir--lots of ominous music, claustrophobic towns, and missing children.
