Top Ten Best BBC Shows

fireinside96
I've noticed that people tend to recognize BBC as an awesome television channel however when the option of watching BBC on an average day they choose not to see it. So if you want nothing to do with BBC then turn away now and dont look back.

The Top TenXW

1Sherlock

This is in my opinion one of the best BBC series ever! Benedict Cumberbatch, Martin Freeman and Andrew Scott are amazing actors and they are playing their parts perfectly! Every episode was full of excitement and plot twists. Definitely one of the best series ever and I can't wait to see the third season!

You can't be serious... This is one of the best shows ever made. Watson, sherlock, the dialoge, all perfect. You could listen to this show without even seeing the visuals and still be amazed at the depth of each story line. However the visuals are their and they are gorgeous. The only draw back is how little of the show currently exist..

This is gonna sound really weird, because I actually //prefer// Doctor Who. Sherlock got my vote because, in my opinion, it's better. I'm not sure if that makes much sense at all but, well, the plot lines are genius, the characters (cough-moriarty-cough) are PERFECT and just blows all other detective show out the water. So even though I, personally, prefer Doctor Who I fell like Sherlock deserves no. one more.

This show is amazing! The plotlines are perfect, and the character casting is just incredible!

2Doctor Who

Yeah there are loads of fantastic shows with amazing writing and superb acting. But Doctor Who is immense, it's epic, it's funny and it's heart breaking, and it's the only show in which you can do anything and go anywhere and that is simply brilliant

I love Doctor Who and Primeval! Doctor Who has to be one of the most ingenious shows ever made! Lasting for nearly fifty years with the same character with eleven different actors is beyond brilliant! Eccleston you'll always be my Doctor

While it is set all over time and space, the show is really about being human and all that entails. It explores the darkest corners of the human soul and still showcases how truly brilliant and amazing humans can be.

Sherlock can't hold a candle to this

3Merlin

An original version of the legends of King Arthur and Merlin. The show combines humor, angst, action, romance, fantasy... It definitely had potential to go even further than five seasons, with a rather sad ending, but is definitely worth the watch. There are many funny moments, fun characters, an awesome set (Camelot) and much more. If you like fantasy shows, you'll definitely like this.

Whatever genres you like, you must watch Merlin. It's funny, nice, somehow romantic, historical, action and you just learn so much from this characters about honor and friendship. Merlin it's a 'must watch' kind of show, trust me.

Doctor who is just a endless misery of random events that keep watchers on top of there seats, while lacking story and other important issues, Merlin is a story well told in this exiting T.V. series.

Merlin should have been on top just that due to it's sad ending

6Downton Abbey

Decided to watch an episode on a lazy day off and stopped at the season four finale. This was not all in one day, of course, but I tried! I was thrilled when season five finally got here.

What about the HOUR? Not listed. There should be a series 3!

7Miranda

An amazing show one of the best ever comedians. She is a national treasure

I wish they would bring her back. Loved her show!

Miranda and Stevie are so funny

8The Sarah Jane Adventures
9Total Wipeout

This is my favorite show. - rrrBaer

10The Musketeers

Best, Best, Best, characters, story, scenery, history, best, best, best!

Top AA Actors! Top of the line sets, costume, et al.
Actors perfectly fit their parts. All of them, Queen, King, and of course the Musketeers and Trevaille (sp? ). Not too sure about Rohchefort, but it's still early for him we'll see, however he does play an excellent villain, the perfect guy to loathe! Don't like Milady, but that's a good thing, you're not supposed to!
My favorite part of the show: Screenwriting, Directing, Camera work!
These people know their art! And it makes sense from the show they worked on and/or created in earlier years! Bravo!

12Atlantis
13Robin Hood

I like how they (outlaws) realize their set plans and bugment of the Sheriff.! The best!

I love it! It is a show that will leave you satisfied, it is intense, and at times very emotional.

14Being Human

Absolutely fantastic. I cried and laughed my way through the entire series. From humor, drama, and heart-wrenching love stories that have to end, the show truly has it all.

15Monty Pythons Flying Circus

I have never since watched a show where falling to the floor in pain from laughing so hard happened more than once in a single episode. This show is genius; It was so far ahead of it's time, still quoted today in mainstream culture, and beyond the humor of almost anything made today, besides 'who's line is it anyway'. I has never watched anything more funny in my life and a lot of the humor is actually quite intelligent as well. - masongilbert74

16The Mighy Boosh

So funny! Makes me Laugh every time I even see a dvd box. So many happy memories with this show

17Luther

With only ten episodes, this show not being on the list isn't surprising, but if you haven't seen it, go to Netflix right now and watch! Great writing, intense stories, and incredible acting.

This show is hard to put down, give it a ten. Every copper would love it, this one did.

Watch it on BBC before the American version comes out and ruins it!

Best show ever

19Survivors

This series is amazing! I'm saddened to only see 2 seasons of it on NEtflix but if someone was smart, they would bring this show BACK, and carrie on where it left off. Preferably keeping some of the original cast, watching peter and his mom reconnect, and hopefully more info on the people who got the post card in the mail. Hopefully a USA producer takes this over, if the britts refuse to bring it back! I highly recommend this on netflix, and am happy with BBC for doing such a stand up show. First time watching bbc and I'm hooked. BRING THE SHOW BACK!
