House of Cards Trilogy

Dastardly British politician Francis Urquhart schemes his way to the top of British politics, displaying a total lack of empathy and utter ruthlessness in the process. Masterfully played by Ian Richardson who brought the character chillingly to life.

Possibly, the best mini-series ever produced by the BBC. The story is well known, it's been a classic for decades. The acting and direction is of the highest calibre, with Colin Firth and Jennifer Ehle, two outstanding actors, in the lead roles.

Political Thrillers

People who added this item 39 Average listal rating (17 ratings) 8.3 IMDB Rating 8.7
Adaptation of the classic book by John Le Carre.

It's the 70s and the cold war between the USSR and the West is intense as ever. There is a Russian mole at the very top of British intelligence and he's been remarkably adept at hiding himself. A retired intelligence officer is brought in to try and flush out the mole.

Modern Dramas

Generally, 20th century and later.
People who added this item 19 Average listal rating (5 ratings) 9.4 IMDB Rating 8.2
A family reunion brings together people who have either not seen each other in years or never at all, with interesting consequences. It's a bit of a feel good drama by the end, but the characters are so well written that all is forgiven.

Science Fiction and Fantasy

The Kingdom (1994)
Written and directed by Danish master Lars Von Trier, this bizarre mix of horror, drama and comedy is totally unique. It's hard to believe that this was actually broadcast on TV in Denmark.

The start of one of the best science fiction series to ever be broadcast on US television started right here.

Almost all British, since they seem to have an unmatched tradition of great mini-series in that country.
