We all know the prestige US drama TV series, your Game of Thrones, your Mad Men, your The Wire, but UK telly has a different tradition innit, the HGATR TV threads on here focus on comedies, UK-wise, and our acclaimed dramas tend to be shorter. NEVERTHELESS what do YOU think are the best UK Drama series???
Our Friends In The North.
Midsomer Murders (not a joke answer)
Boys from the blackstuff
All the This Is Englands.
Bodies & Line of Duty
Cracker, not seen it but the Red Riding adaptations are meant to be fantastic. Prime Suspect.
Feel like we do grisly serial killer police drama/kitchen sink stuff pretty well
Not as good as the books, obv, but still astonishing.
The Jimmy McGovern TV film about Hillsborough.
Not read the books (honestly don’t think I have the stomach knowing what I know about the story)
State Of Play
Loads of Dennis Potter stuff
Oh they’re absolutely grim and not easy to get through at all but stunningly good if you can.
The Come Dine with Me week in Preston
Don’t watch that many but off the top of my head I really enjoyed broadchurch (first one) and my mad fat diary
