Re: British TV shows

@MattMatt, I'm curious.

After having watched Call the Midwife, Doc Martin, Midsomer Murders and many other British shows I'm convinced it rarely rains in Great Britain.

Is this true?

American TV in the recent past is really letting me down. Bad writing, preposterous plots, etc. Don't get me going on "so called" sit-coms.

These are the British series I have watched so far:

Foyle's War - Only half through, but damn good.
Happy Valley - Just wow, excellent series.
River - Real good.
Broad Church - Just excellent.
Black Mirror - On the dark side, but good.
Doc Martin - To funny!

Can anyone recommend other British (or any country as long it is in English) to watch?

Thanks!
I am British and we now have series 3 of Broadchurch on. I love it.
I love Miranda, so funny, but it depends on your sense of humour.
We have also watched all the series of Foyles war, excellent.

Line of duty is great. I saw series 2 and 3, but have bought series 1 to watch now as well.
I also like Vera and Endeavour. Grantchester is good as well.
Of course the amazing Sherlock, awesome programme. Call the midwife is really popular here. Unforgotten is also very good. Lewis is another, and Downton Abbey I love.

Can't wait series 3 of Broadchurch to hit the states! Usually takes a couple of months.

Re: British TV shows

When I was a young girl growing up in the 70's my family and I used to watch the following British comedy shows. I remember thinking these shows were so funny but now days they would be classed as politically incorrect.

70's Shows:

On the Buses,
Love Thy Neighbour
Bless this House
Mind your Language
Benny Hill
**** Emery
Fawlty Towers
Man about the House
George and Mildred
Kenny Everett

Other shows that I have enjoyed over the years:

Some Mothers Do 'Ave 'Em
Little Britain
Ab Fab
Gavin and Stacy
Cold Feet
Mrs Browns Boys
Inspector Morse

Does anyone remember the American show called 'The Night Stalker' with Darren McGavin from the early to mid 70's. I think that they only made one series? I use to have nightmares watching this show.

Too bad that you didn't get to see series 1 first as the main story and characters progress and intertwine from there through the last two series. I've got to say that I loved Keeley Hawes as Lindsay Denton.

Next up I think is Unforgotten,as it does look good.

Re: British TV shows

How about AMC's Preacher (set in Texas filmed in New Mexico), with most of the main cast being British.

I liked the first two seasons more than the third one which made me cringe at the amateur hour weapons handling and entry conduct.

Re: British TV shows

Found another good one: The Last Kingdom. Set around 890's England and a war between Vikings (Danes) and Saxons.
Only saw 2 episodes so far, very good.

There are 2 seasons but Netflix only has season 1.

I think it depends on where in England you are.
I lived along the southern coast for years and I saw my fair share of rain during winter times, because it almost never snowed.
Walking absolutely everywhere taught me the value of spending for a strong birdcage umbrella.
