I'm a huge Downton Abbey fan.
That show spurred me to check out another series on Netflix (which was recommended by a friend) called "Call the Midwife", also a show out of the UK. Love that show too!

What are some of your favorite British tv series?
It can be drama, comedy, or sci-fi and preferably be available on Netflix.

Thanks!

I am watching Monarch of the Glen on DVD; it's a comedy-drama about a young man who accepts his role as the laird of a giant, expensive, run-down Scottish castle. It's pretty hilarious. I think it ran from 2001-2007.

I really liked Foley's War and Land Girls. I loved call the midwife at first, but then all the grunting and groaning got too much.
