Best British Mysteries

Barkley Ponttee
The list author says: "I love the mysteries from the BBC"
Life On Mars: The Complete First Series (U.K.)
Life On Mars: The Complete First Series (U.K.)
"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"
Inspector Morse - Complete Collection
Inspector Morse - Complete Collection
"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
The Complete Inspector Lynley Mysteries
"Another great mystery series, good complicated plots, sometimes a little soapy and Lynley a little whimpy, but all together worth the time and money"
Foyle's War: Series 1-5 - From Dunkirk to VE-Day
Foyle's War: Series 1-5 - From Dunkirk to VE-Day
"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."

"Another excellent show from the Brits.  Character is interesting, loved the car, liked the way shows run into the next episode and mysteries are solved as new ones begin."
Episode 1 - Luther, Season 1
Episode 1 - Luther, Season 1
"This is a excellent show.  Mysteries are good, bending the rules, making things right.  Glad to hear there will be a 3rd season."
Sherlock: Season 1
Sherlock: Season 1
"Great show!  Interesting job updating the Holmes series to modern world.  Breathlessly awaiting the DVD for Season Two to arrive from the amazon.co.uk site.  I cracked my DVD player to play PAL!"
