Best British TV ShowsOf all T.V. programmes to come from the UK, which is the best?
The Top Ten
Despite plot holes and (sometimes) dumb writing, the cheesy moments, the low budget CGI, unnecessary romance and the annoying push of some social issues, Doctor Who is the most unique and intelligent shows from the UK. Despite the said flaws, the show overcomes them with a huge list of positives that will take forever to note. The classic series is better, but from 2005 onwards is still fantastic with some true gems out there. The universe is also nicely expanded with various Spin-off material like Big Finish, Torchwood, the Sarah Jane Adventures and mini-episodes etc.
GET IT TO THE TOP!
Don't Blink SO GOOD
My favorite show
I'm British, and I can personally say that this show is why I am proud to be the nationality that I am. I'm so glad that our nation can produce this talent. - GordonRamsayV 9 Comments
I'm from Britain and I've seen just about all our T.V. shows but this is by far the best. Not only that, it's the best sherlock holmes portrayal ever (Robert Downey Jr at 2nd), thanks to the modern setting and genius cast and crew. Just watch it and see for yourself. Not only me, but I am yet to meet a person who, if they've ever seen it, doesn't rate it in at least their top 3. Until this site I suppose...
Sherlock is my favourite show. As a Brit, I love our dramas, because of the way the characters are presented, and how the storylines are always dramatic. Sherlock litterally ticks all the boxes. It's funny, it's dramatic, it's emotional, and the characters are just so relateable and likeable (even the bad guys). Also, the actors are incredible, and the music in Sherlock is so passionate and relatable to the plot. I definitely find this better than Doctor Who, so Sherlock should be number one!
Sherlock is by far the best. Even people in India LOVE it! In fact, this website is wrong, Sherlock has been rated best by BBC, ( which is MUCH more official! ). Doctor Who on the other hand, was rated, ummm what was it, 10 did you say.
Doctor Who's boring and the special effects suck. Sherlock is really way better. There's way better plot and stuff like that.V 5 Comments
Ah yes, this show is full of wonderful jokes and entertaining, but still educational, content. I absolutely love it, and I love The Grand Tour, too.
It is the best
My favorite show ever, I loved the cars and the jokes, but mostly the commrodarie between the 3. So sad to see them go, but my dad said we can get Amazon Prime to watch it so fingers crossed. By the way if you did not notice I'm only 11.
Was good until 2015V 6 Comments
But animals I like Gromit more than Shaun.
Masterpiece. How is it not number 1? - ShaunFan04
Should be number 1
I love Fawlty Towers, but I'm really only voting for it because the Vicar of Dibley isn't on here
The best soap there is in my opinion. - Rocko
HILARIOUS. I wish it wasn't cancelled.
He's just the best, enough said.
Your kidding me!
Has some of the best one-liners I've ever heard.
"Oh look, Richmond's still alive" gets me every time. - Rocko
Yes this is a program I can just binge watch
Hello. I couldn't decide between The IT Crowd and Blackadder. It's so funny. I'm pleased it made the top ten. - Britgirl
This show is amazing, it's hilarious, and in my opinion, one of the best shows of all time!
Loved this show. Wish they would rerun it in the states
On of the best sitcoms ever!
Greatest UK soap
The Inbetweeners is one of the most awesome shows on earth. I'm surprised it's at 41. It should be at the top five at least.
This needs to be higher, it's just funny British comedy that can't fail to make you laugh!
Hilarious British comedy :')
Although I love downton abbey, this is my favourite show of all time. I think that Gary Carr will be amazing in both this and downton
I love death in paradise it is amazing and I always watch it when I'm sad
This show is awesome! I love it!
Richard is EPIC! Camille is EPIC! Fidel is EPIC! Dwayne is EPIC! I love this show more than my own life! I cried when I heard about Ben Miller leaving but I will still watch Kris Marshall. Because this show will always be AMAZING! I <3 D.I.PV 1 Comment
Incredibly popular and only doctor who keeps it from being top rated - greatesttop10s
Best show ever. should be in top 5 or at least 10
How is this not in the top 5, let alone top 10?
This is such an amazing show, the characters all have a lot of focus on their individual lives, and it really helps us understand them. It's funny, and very emotional in parts, I'd definitely recommend!
The first two seasons of Skins are flawless. Perfectly weighted with emotion and humour, as well as great character development.
I love Horrid Henry
I can't believe this show wasn't even mentioned in this list. It is the best British show I have seen so far and a must watch. Now that they brought Tom Hardy into the cast, it will be even better. I can't wait to see Tommy Shelby and the gang in season 3.
Agreed! Can't wait for the next season!
Amazing show. Should be in the top 10.
This sucks, take it off
I loved Peppa Pig when I was a little child! I remember how I'd get up early to watch this on Milkshake.
Watching various comedians try to figure out truths and lies is absolutely hilarious.
Blackadder is REALLY funny - Clayttles
Great first season
