+1 for Silent Witness...

and Morse ... and ... WTF: just about all of them :)

Wallender - though not UK-based - was shot by the BBC & starred Kenneth Branagh. Awesome !!

+1 for Sherlock Holmes

Also Being Human is brilliant and if I can add some older shows, Cracker with Roby Coltraine and Chancer with Clive Owen.

British drama & crime is just up my street better IMHO than the American ones anyday here are a few of many:

Scott & Bailey
Vera
Identity
Spooks
Strike Back (they are showing the 2nd series on m-net from Friday but I recomend you try & get the first series this is briliant!!)
Downton Abbey (One of the best historical series ever)
Upstairs Downstairs (similar to Downton but not as good)
The Runaway (based on Martina Cole's book of the the same name)
Appropriate Adult (based on the crimes of Fred & Rosemary West)
Life on Mars & Ashes to Ashes
The Shadow Line
Field of Blood
Without You

All of these are very good indeed :D

Cant stand British TV myself. Probably due to being exposed to Eastenders as a kid..

British comedy on the other hand... brilliant :)
