British and Australian Detective Series

I am a huge fan of British television and movies. I especially like the Detective series new or old. Just when I think I may have seen them all, I will find another gem.
I enjoyed Line of Duty, Scott and Bailey, Morse, Inspector Lynley. Any suggestions?

My wife and I enjoy them as well. They seem to have short seasons and are a bit hard to keep track of.
One of our favorites is Ms. Fisher in addition to the ones you have named.
Love Ms. Fisher, too

Believe it, I've watched all of those. Also like Vera. Oh, wait, I lied. Haven't seen Cracker. Will look for it. Thanks!

Oh well, you're going to LOVE, Cracker!

Can you do a follow-up post for us after you watch one or two episodes of Cracker, just to let us know how much you like it?

Sure! If you think of any others or happen to trip across new ones, clue me in! I just watched a good one on Masterpiece. BAPTISTE

I used to watch "Poirot" and "Rosemary and Thyme".

There was one I kind of liked, but only saw a few episodes. "Hetty Wainthropp Investigates" with Patricia Routledge.

Detective stories aren't really that interesting to me.

Have you watched Harrow? It's a newish one about an unorthodox forensic pathologist. Set in Australia. I really enjoyed the first series and so far I'm enjoying the second series which just started a few weeks ago here in UK. https://alibi.uktv.co.uk/shows/harrow/

Another new one that I enjoyed is Hidden. This one is set in North Wales. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt7217374/ There have been two series of this, am keeping fingers crossed there'll be a third!
 
@Pam, I watched the 1st episode of Harrow and was very much enjoying seeing I. Gruffudd again; but I have to admit the way he let his daughter down at the end of the episode really let me down. Is it worth keeping on?

Love Harrow! We have 2 seasons in the US. Waiting for a third, hopefully. I will look for Hidden, thanks!

I remember Ioan Gruffudd from another short lived series, Forever. Didn't last long but his character was a forensic pathologist in that one, also.
