It’s nearing the end of another year, so media attention turns to Top 10 lists in all their many forms. So, I thought I’d offer my own rundown of the top TV shows that have entertained and delighted me this year, drawn from the well of UK and Us offerings. I’m only human, so I didn’t see absolutely everything that aired this year, so apologies if there are any glaring omissions in your eyes.
And it’s worth keeping in mind that my Top 10 is ranked by a combination of quality and entertainment-value, which may explain some of the more “unusual” choices and positioning. There are a few quality shows that didn’t make my list because, while I appreciate their many virtues, they just weren’t “appointment TV” for me every week, which is surely what matters the most.
Anyway, on with the countdown, in ascending order:
