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 Call the Midwife: Nifty Fifties in Britain

Nifty - pretty terrible word, right? But that's exactly the weird way people use to talk in the world's post-war, pre cultural revolution decade. If you don't believe us, throw on a couple of these shows and see for yourself.

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 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.
