Didn't Find What You Were Looking For?

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 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.

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.

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 Cold Case: Cold Cases Get Microwaved

These cases may have gone cold, but these dramas show there is no shortage of sleuths willing to put them in the microwave of forensic investigation, eventually serving the steaming TV Dinner of justice to baddies who thought they got away with it

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.
