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.
[Newest]One of my all time favorite shows!

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.
[Newest]The most imaginative show ever created, and it got even better with Peter Capaldi

3Merlin
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.
The best version of the classic stories about Merlin the magician and king Arthur of Camelot.

[Newest]There has to be more.

4Primeval

5Top Gear
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..
Primeval isn't even BBC. It's on ITV. At least Top Gear is BBC
[Newest]Jeremy Clarkson getting fired was the funniest part of the show.

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

8The Sarah Jane Adventures

9Total Wipeout
This is my favorite show.

10The Musketeers
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!

The Contenders

11Torchwood
I ship Jack & Gwen and Owen & Gwen. I ship Gwen with anyone except Rhys and she ended up marrying him

Witch2014


12Robin 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.

13Being 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.

14Atlantis

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.

BEST SHOW EVER! Thank you and goodbye!

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.
Man...2 good 4 a serial
Watch it on BBC before the American version comes out and ruins it!

18The Wrong Mans

19Ramsays Kitchen Nightmares

20Survivors
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!
