Greatest Modern British Drama TV

The United Kingdom has produced some of the greatest series in television's Golden Age, including Sherlock, Black Mirror, Peaky Blinders, Luther, and of course Downton Abbey, and we've rounded up the best of the lot based on audience ratings, popularity, and critical acclaim.

Shows Like Homeland: Political Thriller TV

While modern politics may seem more unpredictable than anything a TV writer could come up with, these shows give reality a run for its money, with fast-paced plot lines around terrorism, corruption, and political scandals.

Shows Like Alias: Spies in Action

These action thrillers feature agents from the CIA, MI-5, Mossad and their global counterparts rooting out spies, terrorists and criminals by any means necessary.

Shows like Bodyguard: British Political Thriller TV

Corruption, cover-up, abuse of power, sex--we suspect life at Downing Street is not, in fact, quite this exciting--but it makes for great television.

Shows like The Night Manager: British Espionage Thrillers

Welcome to the U.K., a nation full of clever spies, political conspiracies, and dangerous enemies--both foreign and domestic--all of whom have great accents. Chock full of MI-5 and MI-6 spies who don't need to hide their identity because everyone is too polite to inquire. Be sure to check out The Night Manager, The Game, and London Spy for excellent recent series.

Shows like Chernobyl: Cerebral Political Thrillers

Forget the action sequences and badass special agents, because these shows delve into the political side of conspiracies--but if brains are not better than brawn, they can always call in Jack Bauer.
