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 Luther: Life with London's Bobbies

To paraphrase Samuel Johnson, when someone is tired of London crime shows, they are tired of life. That may be a bit of an overstatement, but these police shows set in the Smoke will have you looking for cheap flights to Heathrow.

Shows Like The Shield: Good Cop, Crooked Cop

Some of these cops live to protect and serve--themselves. Thank God for the upright few who risk their jobs to bring about 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 The Wire: Gritty Crime Shows

These series feature crooked cops and ruthless criminals who mix it up on the garbage-strewn streets of big cities. Pioneering shows like NYPD Blue and the Shield focused on cops in US cities, but the best of the current batch are anchored in the lives of gang members on the mean streets of Birmingham, Rome, Paris and Dublin.

Shows like Small Axe: TV Series Starring Black British Actors

These dramas, thrillers, and comedies star Black British protagonists--Small Axe, Top Boy, Chewing Gum, and I May Destroy You are not to be missed.

Shows like Twin Peaks: Best of Noir Detective TV

Great detective shows served black, with all the grisly murders, investigators with troubled pasts and uncertain futures, and a lot of P.I.s named Jack.

Shows like Blindspot: Sorry, Who Am I again?

Drama series about people who forget who they are and try to reconstruct their past lives. Or in some cases struggle with their declining memory.
