British Science Fiction & Supernatural TV Shows – Top New Finds!
Some of the British science fiction and supernatural shows are great TV watching, and I have added a few from other international ones!
Invisible City (Netflix) – deep Brazilian fantasy/supernatural, very entertaining and interesting, go see!
The Bastard Son (Netflix) – born a witch, but is he evil like his dad? Very well done!
Above is the best actor who has portrayed the Doctor of Doctor Who fame, David Tennant. This is the greatest science fiction show of all time, which originally ran from 1963-1985. Since the series was brought back to life in 2005, it has gone through many actors playing the main character, each of which had their own companions. This is the longest running science fiction show of all time, and in this new incarnation, the best writing under Russell Davies. Russell left for a few years and is slated to return for the next season with the next actor portraying the Doctor, no one knows who that will be! PS Professor River Song is one of the best characters ever created, I hope to see more of her written into the show!
And just because this Comic Relief video is perfection, it stars David Tennant with Catherine Tate, portraying non-scifi characters. Catherine portrayed Donna Noble for a season, the best companion to the doctor that there ever was! Here she plays Lauren, one of her comedic characters from her own series, and this is absolutely brilliant!
The following shows are perfect for binging during your yearend holiday staycation, these are newer additions to my collection, and well worth viewing after you see Doctor Who!
The Misfits (Hulu) – Cheesy production, and still binge-worthy science fiction. And Robert Sheehan from The Umbrella Academy is in this. I highly recommend!
Ultraviolet (Prime Video) – One season, six episodes. Great new ideas on the old vampire theme!
The Irregulars – British supernatural!
Crazyhead (Netflix) – also a comedy, nice twist on the demon genre, binged all six episodes in one night.
A Discovery of Witches – (Sundance TV) eagerly awaiting season three on the Sundance Channel! Nicely done with a different approach to witches, vampires, and demons.
Trickster – Canadian, good supernatural show. Unfortunately, only one season because of internal disputes, not due to low ratings.
The Commons – (Sundance TV) Australian dystopian series, one season, gripping, the future is just a few years away and it isn’t looking good!
Apparitions – (Amazon Prime) is about one Priest versus the growing power of Satan and his minions, the demons.
The Nevers – (HBOMax) – nice supernatural.
His Dark Materials – (HBOMax) Nice science fiction.
Years and Years – (HBOMax) – Dystopian and excellent!
Update, foreign Supernatural shows are always worth a binge:
The Boarding School: Las Cumbres – (Amazon Prime) – Spanish, dubbed and with subtitles. Some weird stuff is going on in this boarding school!
Cleverman – (AMC+, Sundance) – Australian supernatural, also some race war and heavy racism intermixed.
My full list of top shows is here. There are some excellent foreign productions listed, and also a sub-category of dystopian shows. I would love to hear your recommendations, non-US only please!
