As it says in my bio, I’m addicted to British crime dramas. I’m not sure when this love affair began but I can say my first major crush was Inspector Lewis. I love the droll banter between Lewis and Hathaway, his detective sergeant. I have seen the episodes numerous times and still chuckle over Hathaway’s sharp wit. This list of five of my favorite shows is by no means a complete inventory of the ones I have enjoyed.
As stated, Inspector Lewis is my favorite.
And the rest in no particular order:
New Tricks. I love the relationship between the characters.
Unforgotten. I love Nicola Walker! I think she expresses such empathy for the victims and survivors.
Vera. Brenda Blythen does a wonderful job as Vera and the scenery is spectacular.
Shetland. The scenery is amazing! And Douglas Henshall as Jimmy Perez isn’t so bad.

When teacher Sasha Honeycutt kisses a handsome cowboy in a bar on a dare, she never expects to see him again. To her surprise, though, he walks through the door of her classroom for a parent-teacher conference. Sheriff Remy Fontenot might be sexy as sin, but Sasha has no interest in falling for another police officer. Rose Creek, Texas is her fresh start after being “that poor widow.” Only, Remy’s precocious daughter has big plans for the two of them…
After their stolen kiss, Remy knows there’s a sexy woman hiding under that school marm charm. When fate—aka his seven-year-old—keeps putting her in his path, he decides to take it as a sign. His daughter needs a mom, and the intriguing, beautiful Sasha is perfect for the role. Not to mention their chemistry is off the charts. Unfortunately, he’s set his sights on the one woman in town who has no interest in falling for another man with a badge.
