Didn't Find What You Were Looking For?

Best Crime TV

A (police) round-up of some of the highest rated, award-winning, most popular, and most influential crime shows--crime doesn't pay except for streaming services.

Shows like Luther: Life with London's Bobbies

To paraphrase Samuel Johnson, when someone is tired of London crime shows, they are tired of life. That may be a bit of an overstatement, but these police shows set in the Smoke will have you looking for cheap flights to Heathrow.

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 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 Line of Duty: Get Inside Police Politics

If you're less interested in seeing baddies tagged and bagged, and more interested in seeing how police departments run, then this list of cop dramas may be for you. Hey, it's just like any other office, but with more mustaches, guns, and pending internal investigations.

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.
