Decent British Shows

Of the last 15 years or so. Any recommendations?

I've watched Inbetweeners, Fresh Meat & am currently watching Loaded. Also seen the IT Crowd.

Enjoyed all 3 Broadchurches. And The Five and Safe.

Anything else similar either on Netflix or elsewhere?

Crime or comedy mainly.

Cheers

Peaky Blinders and Line of Duty for starters, are must see series.

Couldn't get into Peaky Blinders. I tried but just didn't work.

I know they all dramas but funny progs, other than the ones you mentioned, are a bit thin on the ground, but if you liked Inbetweeners you may like Fleabag.


Sherlock
Life on Mars
Ripper street
Peaky Blinders
Downton Abbey if you like a bit of costumed totty, although not crime
The Take

I’m currently watching Luther on Netflix

I loved Detectorists. First two series were brilliant.

Not a huge fan of crime dramas, but I do like Peter Mullan, so The Fear, Top of the Lake, and he popped up in Ozark too.

I enjoyed The Fear. Shows like that would be good.
