I started with the John Thaw connection, "The Sweeney" to "Inspector Morse." Then the "Inspector Morse" connection, to "Lewis" and "Endeavour." All (even the campy 1970s "The Sweeney") of them stand on their own as epic television shows. They put U.S. cop shows to shame. It's the screenplays and the acting that put British shows on top.
