Browse British detective series by decade or return to the TV Detective Database:

Below is a complete list of British detective/mystery/crime series from the 2010s. This includes series that started prior to 2010 and continued into the decade, as well as shows that started in the 2010s and continued into the 2020s.

At the turn of the millennium, there was a surge in popularity of reality and true-crime series. However, as I want to focus on scripted/fictional shows on this website, and so documentary-type series were not included in the list below. Titles of series that only lasted for a single year/season have been left unbolded.

Clicking on a title link in the list below will take you to my post about that specific show (if I have created one). Additionally, the list also includes links to places where you can watch/stream the show online.
