Recommendations for British television dramas.
My husband and I have gone right off American TV, so lately we have been watching mostly British comedies. We got so many great suggestions in this previous AskMe,
that I decided to ask for suggestions on dramas, preferably made in the last 10 years or so. We do not care for:
1. Science Fiction. That includes Life on Mars.
2. Supernatural. That includes Hex
3. Police or detective shows. That includes Prime Suspect
and Wire in the Blood.
Anything else goes, bearing in mind that I have seen just about every Masterpiece Theater ever aired, so if it is a costume drama, I have probably seen it. If it helps, our favorite American dramas are:
1. The Wire
3. Mad Men
4. Big Love
5. Six Feet Under
Notice the loose definition of drama-- Big Love
and Six Feet Under
are dramodies or comical dramas. The line between drama and comedy is sometimes very thin so we aren't pedantic. I'm just looking for shows you think are really worth watching.
