Best British Mysteries

A Listmania! list by Richard Lane (Earth)
The list author says: "I love the mysteries from the BBC"
Life On Mars: The Complete First Series (U.K.)
1.  Life On Mars: The Complete First Series (U.K.) DVD ~ John Simm
The list author says:
  "Great series.  Premise is a little strange, but once you except it, the series is excellent.  You will especially enjoy the trip back to the early 70's with the music, the clothes, and realizing just how politically correct our language and behavior have become.

Can actually make you miss the 70's, pre disco era"
$24.20   Used & New from: $10.53
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (84 customer reviews) | 4 customer discussions

Inspector Morse - Complete Collection
2.  Inspector Morse - Complete Collection DVD ~ John Thaw
The list author says:
  "To me, the king of all british detectives.  I can't say enough about this series, it's one of the only mystery series where I can't predict the villian in the first 5 minutes (as I can with, say, Monk).  The side benefit of this series is my appreciation for classical music.

The best of the best.  May John Thaw rest in peace."

The Complete Inspector Lynley Mysteries
3.  The Complete Inspector Lynley Mysteries DVD ~ Nathaniel Parker
The list author says:
  "Another great mystery series, good complicated plots, sometimes a little soapy and Lynley a little whimpy, but all together worth the time and money"
$114.96   Used & New from: $91.05

Foyle's War: Series 1-5 - From Dunkirk to VE-Day
4.  Foyle's War: Series 1-5 - From Dunkirk to VE-Day DVD ~ Michael Kitchen
The list author says:
  "Right up their with Morse as the best of the best.  A very fascinating look at life in Britain during the war.  Shows a side of life in WWII that we in America didn't see.  Good mysteries too."

5.  CASE HISTORIES DVD ~ Jason Isaacs
