Heh. Last night, after watching yet another new (as in "new to us") series on Netflix, hubby turned to me, rather shocked and said, "Do you realize that every new show we've loved in the last two years has been British?"

Ripper Street
Whitechapel
Luther
Wire in the Blood
State Within
Sherlock
Last Enemy
Blue Murder
The Last Detective
Downtown Abbey
Mr. Selfridge
How is Mr. Selfridge? I didn't realize it had begun airing on PBS until the second episode, and I'd already missed the first. I suppose they're probably on their website.

Also, did you ever watch Foyle's War? It's about a detective stationed in Hastings during WWII. It's understated, but the writing and acting are both superb. Michael Kitchen is especially wonderful. And it's full of great guest stars, like David Tennant and Emily Blunt and James McAvoy.
