Best British Detective Series on Netflix in 2024

My parents are addicted to watching British detective series and other British crime series, and because of them, I have definitely become a fan of this genre too.

On Netflix, you can find a wide selection of detective series from England, Scotland, Wales (and Ireland as well), so I made a handy list for you if you love seeing tv-shows in these countries.

This way, you can make a quiet evening a bit more exciting! Which one is your favorite?
