As the title suggests, I was wondering what everyone's favourite BBC TV series are. This can be past or present!

I think for me the list is: Merlin, Robin Hood, Doctor Who, Poldark, and there might be some others too that I have forgotten about!

Edit: Adding to the list, we also have Sherlock, Outnumbered and The Thick of It.

As far as recent series go Years and Years & World on Fire. I've also been enjoying His Dark Materials- reminds me how much I liked the books when I first read them.

I'm going to start watching His Dark Materials soon

I also need to add The Thick of It to the list.

Bodyguard was good, but I can't enter it into my favourites. Line of Duty was also good, but I haven't caught up with the series yet.

It’s easier to say what I don’t like! Bit of a telly addict
I’m really glad no one has said only fools. Bit controversial but I don’t think it’s remotely funny
