Drama, comedy, documentary, and baking: presenting our highly subjective list of the best that British TV has to offer.


8. Downton Abbey 唐顿庄园


(ITV, 2010-2015)


Sentimental. Nonsensical. Soapy. Julian Fellowes’s upstairs-downstairs country-house juggernaut is all of these things and more, but it is also astoundingly successful and ITV’s biggest dramatic hit for many years. 120m viewers worldwide mourned the death of Matthew Crawley, while three Golden Globes and 11 Emmys are testament to America's enduring fascination with the British class system.


7. The Great British Bake Off 《英国家庭烘焙大赛》



Possibly the most unlikely TV phenomenon of the last decade. Who could have predicted the people of Britain would take a low-budget baking competition so firmly to its heart. A perfectly conceived recipe, much lot of the show’s success is down to the bogglingly complex baking challenges, and plucky contestants’ creativity and ambition. But judges Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood brought a nail-biting level of professional rigour to the proceedings, complemented perfectly by Sue Perkins and Mel Giedroyc’s madcap presentation style.


6. The Office 《办公室笑云》



Such a well-observed creation is David Brent - “I’m a friend first and a boss second, probably an entertainer third” - that his name has entered the lexicon as shorthand for a bad boss. So innovative and downright hilarious was Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant’s mockumentary-style sitcom set at a Slough paper merchants that it moved the goalposts for 21st century comedy. It was the first ever British sitcom to win a Golden Globe and has been exported worldwide.


5. Doctor Who 《神秘博士》



A strange bloke in a blue box, travelling through time and space, making friends and fighting alien threats. Across more than half a century and 12 incarnations, the basic pitch for the much-loved sci-fi stalwart has remained the same. There’s a galaxy for Whovians to explore here, from early gems when William Hartnell first encountered the Daleks and Cybermen, through to the current adventures starring Peter Capaldi. Pass the sonic screwdriver.


4. Planet Earth 《地球脉动》



Some of David Attenborough’s most memorable natural history documentaries - including Frozen Planet, Blue Planet and latest landmark series The Hunt - can be savoured via BBC Store but we’ve gone for his ground-breaking portrait of Earth’s sights and sounds. It was the most expensive nature series ever commissioned by the BBC and the first to be filmed in HD. Three years in the making, this epic achievement was watched by 11 million awestruck viewers at its peak.


3. Sherlock 《神探夏洛克》



The game is on. Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss' ingenious contemporary reimagining of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s classic sleuth made a megastar out of Benedict Cumberbatch and became Britain’s most watched drama in more than a decade. Full of dazzling deduction, breakneck-paced plots and spiky camaraderie, the scripts are also crammed with knowing references to the original adventures - as well as so many twists, it’ll leave you dizzy with admiration and reaching for the rewind button.


2. Coronation Street 《加冕街》



When scriptwriter Tony Warren pitched his kitchen-sink drama to Granada, who’d have thought it would still be going strong 55 years later – the world’s longest-running soap and central to ITV’s success? Half the nation watched Corrie at its peak and the cobbled streets around the Rovers Return are part of British culture.
当编剧托尼•沃伦向英国格拉纳达电视台推介自己的这部肥皂剧时,谁能想到它在55年后依然劲头不减,成为全世界播出时间最长的肥皂剧,为英国独立电视台的成功写就了浓墨重彩的一笔?收视最高峰时,全国有一半的人在看这部剧,剧中场景Rovers Return酒吧附近的石子路现已成为英国文化的一部分。


1. The Thick of It 《幕后危机》



Before he became a Timelord, Peter Capaldi was splenetic spin doctor Malcolm Tucker: the government's Director of Communications and a not terribly “civil” civil servant. Armando Iannucci’s fearsome fly-on-the-wall political satire is about the advisers and incompetents who prowl the corridors of Westminster power, waiting for the next ministerial “omnishambles”. This 21st century update of Yes Minister is sweary, savage and prescient, frequently predicting real-life events. Tucker’s resemblance to Alastair Campbell is, of course, purely coincidental.
