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?

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.

I used to really like All Creatures Great and Small

Also watched Upstairs Downstairs

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,
young ones,
python
doc martin (waiting on the last season to hit Netflix now)
lovejoy
luther,

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
