Shows Like Shetland: British Crime Outside London

London may be England's capital, but the underbelly has outposts across the country, from second-cities to the countryside. Thankfully, there's no shortage of quality law enforcement outside the Big Smoke.

Shows like The Fall: British Women on the Case

The Fall's Stella Gibson is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to great women detectives on British television. This list rounds up shows with strong female leads who bring the baddies to justice.

Shows Like Top of the Lake: Missing Persons Reports

Realistic shows about missing persons (sorry, no alien abductions here); if we were on the marketing team, we'd advertise the show on the side of milk cartons, but that's just us.

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 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.

Shows like Broadchurch: Overcast British Cop Shows

Far from the world of Agatha Christie: in these shows the bobbies are world-weary, the criminals depraved, and the rain incessant.

Shows like Case Histories: British Noir Detectives

World-weary detectives, cynical criminals, bleak settings, and British accents--what's not to like.
