2 Top Gear Top Gear Top Gear is a British television series about motor vehicles, primarily cars, and is a relaunched version of the original 1977 show of the same name, airing since 2002, and becoming the most widely watched factual television programme in the world.

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.

RIP Jeremy, James and Richard's little (really very big) car show.
- The Stig

Crap show.

3 Sherlock

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.

SHerlock is bloody amazing
