Themed Lists

Our Favourite Crime Shows

We’ve got brilliantly British dramas, a couple of foreign language treats, some American blockbusters and two disturbing true crimes.

Score: 9.0
4 Seasons Netflix 32 x 50 mins
The fans are asking: is this the most under-appreciated series on tv? Well, there's so much tv on, that accolade could go to a number of unappreciated gems, but Money Heist would be high up the list.
Score: 8.7
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
