Didn't Find What You Were Looking For?

Shows like NCIS: The Police Procedural Parade

The list of police procedurals out there can seem endless, but if you're feeling overwhelmed just think of all the police officers who not only have to solve these crimes, but fill out the paperwork as well.

Shows Like Shetland: British Crime Outside London

London may be England's capital, but the underbelly has outposts across the country, from second-cities to the countryside. Thankfully, there's no shortage of quality law enforcement outside the Big Smoke.

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 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.

Shows like Bones: Medical Examiners Crack the Case

Forensic experts use the latest technology (and sometimes supernatural insights) to keep the bad guys from getting away with murder.

Shows like NCIS: Acronym, Colon, City Crime Shows

We're not saying these police procedurals are formulaic, but they do have pretty similar titles and all feature an ensemble cast of suspiciously good looking police officers, a strong emphasis on the process of catching bad guys, and a sense of place.
