    Just returned to the UK after a few years and bought one of those fire stick thingys and subscribe to Netflix and started to catch up with some British telly what we have missed.

    Started to watch Sherlock and finding it very, very good.

    Are there any other British made gems I have missed the great SMB can recommend?

    Endeavour is excellent. It's about Inspector Morse's early days as a copper.

    Oh and a second vote for Peaky Blinders.

    Should watch The Thick of It too if it's TV series you're after.

    First series is good, rest is woeful.

    Death in Paradise - it's a hard hitting, all action, gritty cop show set on an island in the Caribbean. Critics describe it as The Wire on Martinique.

    Great TV. It started off great then got slowly worse. Still good in the end.

    Have you read the books?

    Black Sails is American made but there's loads of Brits in it.

    No I've not. I might pick them up at some point. Used to be opposed to those sorts of books which I consider trashy, easy reading :lol:

    However, I recently read the Lincoln Lawyer and whilst I still think they're probably trashy, easy reading, I'm just not opposed to that now!

    This. Not seen the others.

    They are basically trashy, easy reading but they're enjoyable and have given me a reasonable grounding in late 9th century and early 10th century British history.

    The Lincoln Lawyer changed my opinion on this sort of book. Why would I be opposed to enjoying myself that much?
