When Daniel Glass is misdiagnosed with a fatal disease he begins to notice how everyone around him treats him better, so he decides to keep pretending that he really is sick. This leads to more lies, and, eventually, crimes.
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.
The protagonists begin these series good--or at least trying hard to be good--but make a series of choices that lead them to a much darker place. Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul are only the beginning.
