Shows like Sherlock: Elementary, My Dear Watson

Shows about or inspired by Baker Street's most famous detective, chock full of deduction, Victorian bromance, and unaddressed opiate addiction--enter the Sherlockverse.

Shows Like Ripper Street: British Detectives of Yesteryear

History wasn't all frilly hats and leisurely carriage rides, it was also murders, thefts, and all sorts of nefarious yellow-toothed ne'er do wells. These shows tell the stories of the detectives who caught the baddies.

Shows Like Victoria: Revisiting the Victorians

Ah, the Victorian age: a time of comically large hoop-skirts, creative facial hair, and legally enforced sexual repression. Unfortunately, we can't go back to such halcyon days, but we can at least revisit them with the following shows.

Shows like Endeavour: Period Cop Shows

Set against historical backdrops, these police procedurals look at the early days of law enforcement, and the mutton-chopped cops who had to nab baddies before even the concept of DNA.

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).

Shows Like Houdini and Doyle: Forensics Before Science Was Cool

Check out forensic investigators doing their thing before forensics was cool (or at least reliable). The detectives in question may have thought DNA was some sort of monogram, but they certainly got deductive reasoning.

Shows like Ripper Street: Victorian Shows for Dudes

Welcome to the dark side of the Victorian era - where smoggy air, muddy streets, and street gangs abound.
