My top 10 must watch TV shows on Netflix: UK

I remember getting Netflix when I was at university and thinking it was rubbish. 6 years on, It’s the only place I watch TV shows. So here are my top 10 TV shows on Netflix that are worth a shot if you haven’t seen them.

(In no particular order)

1. Doctor Who

Of course I have to mention it. I am huge fan and if you have never seen it, why? I feel it’s a British TV classic and at the least, everyone should try watching one episode.

2. Black Mirror

I absolutely love that it is a different concept and story in every episode. Black Mirror will make you furrow your eyebrows and bring up debate among friends and family. Incredible show, and it has just put the fourth series on Netflix!

3. Benidorm

Light, fresh and funny. Sometimes that’s just what you need.

4. The Crown

Just a bloody fantastic show, that I have only just been introduced to.


Miracles happen people! Finally, one of the greatest ever TV shows is on the UK Netflix. The easiest show to watch and incredibly funny.

6. Stranger Things

It has taken the world by storm, and quite rightly so. The cast are brilliant and you never know what is coming next with the story line…what more could you want?

7. Jack Whitehall’s: Travels with my Father

I genuinely don’t know how to put this series into words and I’m not sure there are any. If you need cheering up, this is the show for you.

8. Plebs

Another show I didn’t discover until it was put on Netflix. The show is normally on ITV2, with series 4 coming out later this year. Very British comedy with some classic scenes.

9. Sherlock

Annoyingly clever. Mind-boggling. Bloody fantastic. Also, Martin Freeman can do no wrong in my eyes.

10. Skins

I would maybe go as far as saying this is my second favourite show, ever. Skins was pinnacle for teenagers at the time, including myself, and I am sure for many others watching it years later on Netflix. This show covers teenagers as they go through college/sixth form and everything that comes with that. Many of the Skins cast have gone on to have incredible careers including Nicholas Hoult, Dev Patel, Joe Dempsie and many more.

The next show that I intend on watching is Peaky Blinders. I seem to watch TV shows when they have more than one series available. So that is my next TV venture. If you can recommend any shows, or films, please let me know!

Chow mein,
