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.

Show Like Thief: Shows for Aspiring Thieves

If you give a man a fish, he'll eat for a day; if you teach a man to fish, he'll eat for a lifetime; but if you teach a man to steal others' fish, he'll eat for a lifetime without having to spend all his time fishing. Heist and theft shows that follow this philosophy!

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 Peaky Blinders: Gritty British Criminals

These UK-based criminals are every bit as ruthless as their American counterparts, although must go through slightly more hassle to acquire guns.

Shows like the Night Of: Crime and Punishment from Different Angles

The Night Of is a recent hit in a powerful sub-genre, where a crime and trial are seen from the viewpoint of the police, victims, witnesses, prosecutors, defense attorneys, and suspects (who are often wrongly accused).

Gritty Post-War British Cops and Robbers

You might associate post-War Britain with warm beer, village greens, and pleasant bobbies--but these shows demonstrate the seamy underside of the U.K. in the 1950's-1970's, when gangsters battled with tough cops.

Shows like Money Heist: Heist TV Shows

TV series about planning and executing a big heist--think Ocean's 11, but for TV--with some of the best entries coming from Spain (Money Heist), France (Lupin), and the UK (Hustle).
