We've covered some of the older shows, like Lord Peter Wimsey, here at the Cafe. However, many of these TV series were made after the 1980s and thus can't be categorized as classic television (at least, not yet). Since they don't "fit" at the Cafe, we came up with the idea of a new blog dedicated solely to British television sleuths.
We've reviewed the following seven TV series to jump-start our blog:
- Agatha Christie's Poirot
- Foyle's War
- Hetty Wainthropp Investigates
- The Last Detective
- Pie in the Sky
- Scott & Bailey

Our goal is to review a new show weekly. We already have a backlog of intriguing series waiting to be reviewed (e.g., Dalgliesh, Midsomer Murders, George Gently, etc.). If you're interested in watching any of these shows, we recommend checking out your local public library or streaming services like Acorn TV.
We invite you to visit our British TV Detectives blog and let us know what you think of it. Hope to see you there!
