With so many high-quality TV shows available to stream these days, we have a particular soft spot for British mystery shows, mainly recent ones, but also a few from the golden age of detection. Think murder, lace curtains, and quiet country villages. Our favorites range from a 1980s adaptation of Miss Marple to the latest Sherlock Holmes series, proving that some golden ages are destined to continue.
