Starring former Doctor Who star David Tennant, this UK crime whodunit is especially recommended for its sinister atmosphere and compelling story.
The adventures of Walter White and Jesse Pinkman grabbed me until the end. This series by Vince is a masterclass in television.

This series focuses on an entire family filled members who work in law enforcement, be they lawyers, police officers or detectives. It features great drama and one of the best family dynamics I’ve ever seen in a series.
This series might be past its heyday but you can’t go wrong with the granddaddy of crime procedural shows.
If you’re looking for more action and national security levels of criminal activity, look no further than NCIS.
Written by Steven Moffat, this series offers a unique modernized take on the detective we all know and love.
