Is your version called Upton?

Working our way through The Paradise right now, but I know it's only two seasons.

Actually, Once we finish The Paradise, I think next up will be Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries. Which I believe is Australian.

I've got all 15 seasons of Frost in a box set. I'm on season 2 at the moment.

Now that sounds like something I could get into. I've only seen a few, so it would be mostly new to me.

That smacks of desperation.

I'd rather watch the same episode of Poirot fifty times over, than a single episode of Lewis or that long string of misery Wycliffe or that even longer string of misery Barnaby.

There was an excellent Italian/Scicilian series a while back, "Montalbano", for those not too lazy to read sub titles.

Miss Fisher is indeed Aussie. It's Midsomer-ish. Don't forget to play the drinking game: have a swig whenever there's an external shot of the house and/or pony and trap. This requires at least one bottle of wine per episode. (The house and horse clearly cost a fair whack of the production budget, so they like to get their money's worth.)

ETA: The Dr Blake Mysteries are even worse. You have to take a swig whenever the good doctor is doing something completely unrelated to his medical training. This requires two bottle of wine per episode and an Alkaseltzer for the morning after.

I love Lewis and Hathaway, I love seeing the Oxford colleges . I think the chemistry between them is great, just how it was when it was Morse and Lewis.

It's light entertainment, you can relax and enjoy.

Morse, Lewis, Endevour, George Gently, Frost, Midsommer. Some of the best British made murder mysteries

Never seen Lewis, never heard of Endeavour. Used to enjoy Wycliffe but it was a bit dismal. Didn't that finish a hundred years ago?

Dismal as well as miserable is a fair description for the characters I mentioned.

Characters like that, if characters is a fair description?, wouldn't make real detectives in a million years and are more reminiscent of cardboard characters from your typical US crime series.

Excellent recommendation Dick. There have been two original series so far and two "prequels". The originals are infinitely better, if you can get hold of them - as "Morse" to "Endeavour".

Endeavor is the prequel to Morse. He is a young Morse starting his career as a young detective. It is a great series

Why are you comparing British Crime TV series to American Crime series? Like chalk and cheese
