The Top Ten

1
Sherlock
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 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!
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.

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.

3Top Gear
Primeval isn't even BBC. It's on ITV. At least Top Gear is BBC
Most popular Worldwide, series 21 alone they have been to Ukraine, Belgium, Italy, United Arab Emirates, Afghanistan, Burma, Thailand. Best celebrity guests as well, ranging from politicians and TVs best known faces, all the way to f1 drivers and top Hollywood stars
Top Gear is on Television for 20 season... It's so Fluffy I'm gonna die..

4Merlin
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.
Perfect! The best version of the Arthurian Legend. A fun show for the entire family. The best T.V. -series ever!
The best version of the classic stories about Merlin the magician and king Arthur of Camelot.

5Downton Abbey
What about the HOUR? Not listed. There should be a series 3!

6Being 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.

7Monty 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.

The Contenders

11Robin 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.

12Ramsays Kitchen Nightmares

13Luther
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.
Man...2 good 4 a serial

14Survivors
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!
Great show we want more!
