I have always liked British TV series - some of my favorite were Dr. Who, Space 1999, Blackadder, Monty Python, Foyles War, Red Dwarf...
What's your favorite?
'Live long and prosper'

Tough to pick just one, but it would probably be Sherlock.
Other favorites include:
Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell
Monty Python, I Claudius, and Inspector Morse come to mind although there are many others.
If you subscribe to BritBox you'll discover a whole bunch of other goodies.
When a thing is funny, search it carefully for a hidden truth. - George Bernard Shaw
"The young ones" back in the 80's. It was on MTV Sunday nights.
I'd rather be hated for who I am than loved for who I'm not.

|A teetotaling |
I used to really like All Creatures Great and Small
Also watched Upstairs Downstairs
Men fight for liberty and win it with hard knocks. Their children, brought up easy, let it slip away again, poor fools. And their grandchildren are once more slaves.

Top Gear (Clarkson, May, Hammond vintage)

Yup. That be at the top of my list. Though on the make believe side I did like watching Lovejoy and Inspector Morse.

Peep Show, stayed away from the most current seasons, IT Crowd, That Mitchell and Webb Look, just to name a few that may not have been mentioned.
Monty Python's Flying Circus

I had to buy a region free DVD player and go to amazon uk to get Ashes to Ashes,
worth it too,
however , if you watch that series you need to watch Life on Mars first to get it,
as far as Brit Tv,
doc martin (waiting on the last season to hit Netflix now)
and many others already mentioned,,,
also,, one of the best
MI5, even the movie (was on HBO not long ago)is good
caught most of a newer series call Spotless last year, that is good as well
For some reason, Islamists are the only racist, sexist, homophobic theocrats the media can't summon outrage against.
Sherlock, Strikeback and old Top Gear are the extent of my BBC knowledge.
A Perpetual Disappointment...

"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience." -- C.S. Lewis
