If you like Doc Martin, you'll probably like the older Ballykissangel. English priest sent to an Irish countryside parish. More of a drama, but I love it.

They are only available on DVD, but The Last of the Summer Wine is one of the funniest shows ever produced in Britain or anywhere else.

I've been watching the old The Twilight Zone - Season 1 (The Definitive Edition) series. I had forgotten just how good those old shows were. To make it a bit more fun, I'm also reading THE TWILIGHT ZONE: Unlocking the Door to a Television Classic along with the episodes.

I totally agree.
The acting on the BBC series is phenomenal.

Bumping this because we watched the last episode of "Doc Martin" last night. It was just a fabulous show. We always watched at least 2 episodes at a time, sometimes 3. Since there are only 38, we got through them all quickly.

We know they are going to do Season/Series 6 in 2013, so we will be anxiously waiting to see those. I can't say enough what a great show that is. Quirky, but not to the point of unbelievability. We have decided we want to go to Port Isaac in Cornwall for a vacation some year.

I loved how the character of the Dr. was set up so perfectly within the first few minutes of the first episode. I wish American television would take the time to do shows with the high level of acting/writing/directing. Nary a bad note in the entire 38 episodes.

I watched Season One on Prime last year and got so caught up in it I bought Sea z on Two.

Now you get both seasons on Prime. Wonderful show!

There aren't many shows that cause me to have the emotional reaction that I do to the midwives. I hope it'll be on again next season. Love it, love it, love it.

Downton is wonnnderful! And I haven't seen Call the Midwife yet, but I keep hearing about it.

Meya, did you happen to see any episodes of "Call the Midwife"? I think the season's over now and it's not free, but keep out an eye for it. More BBC excellence.

"Downton Abbey" is free and supposedly a great show but I haven't seen it yet to be able to vouch.

We just watched the first episode of "Doc Martin" and really liked it. Thanks for mentioning that!

I just discovered "Midsomer Murders" which is why I got the prime account to begin with. Netflix was only offering them on DVD.

It is fantastic!

The Forsyte Saga. Anyone who watches Homeland needs to see Damian Lewis, who plays Brody, as Soames Forsyte.

British shows have a much different "feel" than American tv. I know they spend more time in rehearsal and working on the script. "As Time Goes By" was just so good, there were rarely rough spots. Every line seemed to fit, but was also purposeful. Way fewer throw-a-way lines, and NO smart alec little kids to have to listen to. Intelligent humor.

We miss some stuff because of regional jokes, but not enough to make it unbearable. Another we love is "One Foot in the Grave." Such dark humor, but perfectly done. "Keeping Mum" fell in that category, but didn't last long. I expect the subject line was too dark for some.

He totally is. Blackadder is one of the funniest things I've ever seen. "Baldrick!"

Never heard of that one. I put it on my watchlist.

I would love to see "The Brittas Empire" again. Geez that show was a hoot. I like "A Fine Romance" too, and "Chef."

We love our Britcoms here in Ohio. I wish our PBS channel would run "A Thin Blue Line" again. Rowan Atkinson is a genius.
