Fresh off binge-watching Downton Abbey for the second time, I asked my cousins for all their British TV recs. I need a new show! Give me your best British TV shows to Binge-watch, please!
Start With The New Classics
They gave me a list. Of course, there are the classics: Downtown Abbey, Poldark, Call The Midwife & more. Start with those.
Well, as soon as Poldark ended I asked them for more recs. Probably getting tired of being my British TV guides, they created this badass list of the Best British TV Shows to Binge. My cousins watch a lot of their shows on Acorn & I watch a lot of Masterpiece. Hello, Victoria!
As we continue to find new shows, we will update this list & please feel free to comment with any of your personal favorites!
