5 Seasons Now, Sky 60 x 60 mins
Before Breaking Bad, Narcos, and Ozark, there was The Wire – this early noughties series is the kingpin of crime dramas.
Score: 9.3
6 Seasons Now, Sky 86 x 50 mins
For telly fans such as ourselves, this series marks the dawn of a TV revolution, where the small screen became as significant as the silver one, and home entertainment became a presence as large and looming as Tony Soprano himself. Bada bing bada boom.
Score: 9.3
5 Seasons Netflix 62 x 60 mins
There are few series as universally revered and conversation-sparking as this. And now, over ten years since it first aired, it’s high(senberg) time we revisited Breaking Bad.
Score: 9.3
2 Seasons Crime, Drama 19 x 55 mins
This critically acclaimed fictional series features history’s most brutal killers – Ed Kemper, Charles Manson, Monte Rissell, Richard Speck - without glamorising their crimes. It does this by focusing less on the actual killing, and more on the inner workings of the criminals’ messed up minds.
Score: 9.1

Ozark

3 Seasons Netflix 30 x 60 mins
The Byrdes are just like any other American nuclear family. At least they were until their ol’ pops decided to launder money for a drug cartel.
Score: 9.1
1 Season BBC iPlayer 3 x 60 mins
In our minds A Very English Scandal would be someone putting the milk in before the hot water when making a cup of tea, or going over 24 hours without mentioning the weather. But here it’s something much more fun: a plot to murder.
Score: 9.1
2 Seasons BritBox 12 x 60 mins
We reckon Tortured Valley would be a more appropriate name for this show, though the Yorkshire tourism board might not be so keen.
Score: 9.0

Des

1 Season ITV Hub 3 x 60 mins
Tennant skilfully portrays what made the killer such a curiosity: this is a normal guy, with a normal job, who just happens to have murdered a dozen or so young men and used them as props round his house. Interior design 101: don’t use corpses for décor.
Score: 8.9
