This page contains an extensive list of British crime and mystery television series and movies. Though I am American, my appetite for these series and movies is insatiable and beyond an addiction level. As compared to their American counterparts, the British series and movies tend to rely less on glitz and gimmicks, and focus more on the investigation, procedure, sub-plots, and character development. One key factor that enables this is the program length, which can range up to multiple hours per case or story.
This page summarizes dozens of series and movies that I have viewed, or where I have some degree of knowledge. Due to the sheer number, they are divided into some very rough categories, and below is a summary of them. The descriptions and my comments about each series are dynamic, and will be continually updated over time. Repeat visitors can visit the Update History on the About page to see what was added by date. Much to my surprise, this page is viewed thousands of times per month, so I know that I am not alone in my appreciation of British television!
