I just ran across this article: https://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2020/11/why-british-police-shows-are-better/616479/?utm_source=pocket-newtab
Seems relevant to the topic at hand! I'm sure many here would agree with the author.
I've really only got Netflix so Marcella, Happy Valley and Broadchurch are my top 3 but are all extremely dark. I watched Marcella and then closed my curtains and slept with the light on.
There are so many: light and enjoyable but the best are deeper and darker; Foyle's War, Silent Witness, Shetland, Morse triad, Spooks, Sherlock Holmes and Poirot etc. The thing about British dramas is that they give you time to absorb the impact of a situation rather than a quick cut to the next scene, unlike the US productions.
Love MANHUNT, LONDON KILLS, NO OFFENCE, SCOTT AND BAILY, INSPECTER LYNLEY, HAPPY VALLEY, BROADCHURCH, MIDSOMERS MURDERS (scenery is gorgeous), INSPECTOR MOORSE, and many,many more
My show of the moment is The Mind of JG Reeder. It's an ITV show from the late Sixties-early Seventies, based on stories by Edgar Wallace. Hugh Burden plays the mild mannered employee at the Department of Public Prosecutions.
Yes, big fan. Have you watched Happy Valley? Great show - 2 seasons. A bit dark.
Yes, big fan. Have you watched Happy Valley
I think the third series is being written at the moment.
Good news! Thanks for the update. :)
"Two Weeks to Live" recent started airing here on Crave, and I love it! It's totally bonkers.
