Top 20ish British TV shows

I'm not British, I've never lived in Britain, but I do love me some British television
  1. Downton Abbey
    Might be cliche, but it deserves all the praise
  2. Doctor Who
    I started as a kid with Tom Baker and fell in love again with the reboot
  3. Pride and Prejudice
    Yes, it's a miniseries and yes, it changed my life
  4. Every other BBC version of a Jane Austen novel
    I love her, and true love lasts a lifetime
  5. Sherlock
    Need I say more...
  6. Twenty twelve and W1A
    Hugh Bonneville is a genius
  7. Luther
    Idris Elba...that's all
  8. The Inbetweeners and Fresh Meat
    Similar types of comedy, slightly raunchy but still good
  9. Last Tango in Halifax
    Beautiful story, great characters, slightly on the dramatic side

    I love a mystery, especially one on the lighter side
  12. Keeping Up Appearances
  13. The Office
  14. The IT crowd
  15. The Great British Bake Off

    the title says it all
