Welcome to my recommended series...
I much prefer to watch series than movies as most films are not long enough for my liking, whereas a series gives you more time to really get engrossed in the characters and subject matter. I could list many favourite series but here are just a few.

Here are a few favourites for you to watch now

House MD

Interesting dilemhas and hard decissions made easy.
A great series which puts a spin on the presumed arrogance of Hugh Laurie's diagnostic specialist character. I wish I could assert myself to be as straightforward speaking without losing respect, what a feeling that must be. Plus I love the trust in what he says that "everybody lies" and "the world is full of idiots" I can sure relate to that!

In Sickness and In Health

Will never be aired on TV again.
As far a good old fashioned London comedy goes, this is hard to beat other than Only Fools and Horses. Even now, the verbally brutal, politically incorrect, racial and male chauvinist attitudes of Alf Garnet actually shows that he makes a lot of sense. I'm not so sure that society is any better off without this type of open honesty.

The Shield

Gripping with a continuous story line.
Television has always been quite saturated with crime series but this one is pretty gritty and shows a task force that are not too concerned about bending the rules quite often for the right reasons. A must watch series on par with The Sopranos though a different side. Much of what you see could be quite believable too.

Cracker

The unconventional psychologist Gerry "Fitz".
Robbie Coltrane makes this character Fitz so believable with his own life in tatters and his addictions to gambling an drink as well as his under achieving love life. Maybe all of this is what helps him to get inside the criminal mind with his persuasive interrogation techniques. Down to earth and honestly gritty - that's why I like it!

Fawlty Towers

Perfectly written with exquisite comedic timing.
Not only a comedy classic but with cult status from only ever producing six hours worth of screen time. To have this much success from seemly such a short series must surely prove its brilliance. Something I can and do watch time and time again, even if I know the scripts off by heart. Stereotypical John Cleese at his very best.

Inspector Morse

Oxford's best detective by the beloved John Thaw.
Bit of a slower pace than The Sweeney days, but fans of the crime genre love this as it's usually a great whodunnit with no car chases or fights and refreshingly different from the usual cop shows. After passing away on 21st February 2002 the baton was taken up with the series Lewis and Endeavour, both of which are also must see series.

Rome

Terrific series, maybe it's the Italian in me!
The greatest historical production of the Roman Empire ever made, illustrating the ordinary Roman as well as the Roman Republic. A griping series with superb actors portraying a the real historical events. If I could ever get away even just for a weekend, Rome is where I would go. For me it's to be the most interesting city in the world.

QI

More than Quite Interesting, funny and educational.
I am a massive fan of Stephen Fry and I could listen to him talk all day long, with his vast wealth of knowledge, the stories he can tell and of course his witty anecdotes. Stephen Fry is a god in my eyes and I have followed his life story and watched pretty much every documentary and comedy sketch that he has done. A true genius!

The Tudors

A seriously unmissable in account of Henry VIII
If only this was available for me to watch when I was at school... I learned so much from this series which is supposed to portray the most factual detailed historical version of the life of Henry Tudor. With all the plotting and politics behind closed doors, the glory, the loses and emotions, this is a must see series.

Only Fools And Horses

This time next year... we'll be millionaires!
Who can't resist the UK's most loved comedy capers of Del Boy and Rodney trying to achieve their rise to meteoric rise to from rags to riches from Nelson Mandela House in Peckham? Created by John Sullivan, this is comedy writing and performing at it's very best. With dodgy dealings, mishaps, London slang and tears of laughter.

The Newsroom

Based on real events with great humorous moments.
I've said it before and I'll say it again... The speech that Jeff Daniels gives in the opening few minutes of the pilot episode is outstanding and if it were in a move, he would have won an award. Fantastically written with great characters. A great deal of serious global event news composed at the cutting edge of breaking news broadcasting.

I have 1000's of series episodes and movies... so any requests?
