I've watched all the above plus:

Strike -oooh bit of a lust thing going on thereblush



George Gently



Cracker (so long ago now but I remember it being very tense. I was 18 when that came out I think. I'm old).

I didn't like the Detectorists

I like the daytime things like Shakespeare and Hathaway, Murder, She Wrote, Columbo etc. but want a good series to get stuck into on these dark nights. Nothing that will have me jumping at shadows too much because I'm not brave grin

Nothing to add OP but I thought this was a baby names thread when I started reading your title and was horrified until I saw 'telly addicts' grin

There's a Shakespeare & Hathaway style one set in Majorca on iPlayer, an old thing called Vexed on Netflix in similar vein.

Can't believe no-one has suggested Midsomer Murders, Poirot or Marple.

I love a good crime drama.

Fear by the Lake. You can see all episodes o. All 4. West Wing, Wallander, shetland.

'Unforgotten' on Netflix. It's a UK detective drama with a good cast. 3 series.

Possibly 'Spooks'? The UK MI5/MI6 series.

Is Agatha Raisin only available on Sky?
