    Are there any good TV series or miniseries like 24: Live Another Day (set in London) or Spooks (MI5) which I've enjoyed (so far) ? You know shows which are to do with terrorism/political assassination/thriller plots/MI5/MI6 etc

    I've heard of "Strike Back" which sounds good but haven't seen it yet

    I think you should watch The Flash and Arrow, they're my Favorited shows.

    Ones about speed and he can run super fast

    The other

    Has an arrow and kicks but, a crazy flashback story throughout the seasons which is so intriguing.

    I've heard Luther is supposed to be good but I haven't gotten round to watching it, it's a crime drama I believe. It's on Netflix it that helps.

    Luther, The Tunnel, and The Shadow Line are my three favourite British crime dramas/thrillers, all really excellent shows.

    Spooks is the one which automatically springs to mind.

    Give The Tunnel a go too.

    The Fall is a really good British crime drama but not particularly focused on terrorism.

    Not a thriller as such but there's a two part TV serial called Britz about a guy working for MI5, and it's quite focussed on British home-grown terrorism.... can't really say much else as it'd spoil it but I highly recommend it.

    Yes. Seconded.

    Also Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy. More than 30 years old now, but still fantastic.
