Best British TV

For all the Anglophiles out there, enjoy the best British comedies, mysteries, drama, and sci-fi.

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 Ripper Street: Dark Historical Detectives

You won't find any missing pearls or butlers who done it, but you' will find the hard-boiled detectives who caught criminals every bit as sick and twisted as their modern counterparts.

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: British Police Teams

Unlike the solo detective or slightly mismatched pairs of cops, these shows feature teams of complementary (and often quirky) sleuths; there is no "I" in team, although to be fair there is an "i" in crime.

Shows like Ripper Street: Bleak Victorian Drama Shows

No flowing gowns and manor houses in these gritty dramas about the 'downstairs' half of Victorian society: mill workers, dirt farmers, and street urchins, all struggling to adapt as the Industrial Revolution remakes British society.

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.

Best Drama TV

Since the Sorpranos ushered in the Golden Age of television in 1999, networks and streaming services have launched thousands of English language drama series--this list rounds up the crème of the crop that stand out in terms of audience ratings, popularity, and critical acclaim.

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.
