In recent years, Netflix has become a haven of self-produced, original, and fantastic content. From Stranger Things to Ozark, Mindhunter to Making a Murderer — there are plenty of series to sink your teeth into, and the majority of them are American. That's where the little British tab hidden away in the TV section of Netflix comes into play. There is a plethora of television to indulge in, whether it's produced by the streaming giant itself or via broadcasters like BBC or ITV. Also, a lot of these options are critically revered, so finding British Netflix shows with near-perfect Rotten Tomatoes scores isn't that hard at all.
Britain has its fair share of brilliant television, and it's high-time it got the recognition that it deserves. I can openly admit that I really had no interest in The Crown until recently. Before I actually gave it a chance, you'd find me sticking to my American loves like The Officeor House, M.D. (until they were both rudely taken off). Now to the annoyance of my parents, I have become obsessed with The Crown and royally walk around our house talking like Queen Elizabeth and enlightening them on facts about the monarchy. See what you've done to me, Netflix?
And it could do the same to you. Well, maybe not to those extremes, but there are plenty of British shows to get hooked on that I had absolutely no idea were streaming on the site. So here's a list of seven British shows that will take over your life, all thanks to the wonderful streaming site that is Netflix.
