T-Meter Title | Year
93% The Fall: Season 2 (TV, 2013-2016) The finale in so many ways summed up season two of The Fall: moments of promise buried in a massive heap of storylines either too contrived to be believable, or introduced only to be discarded later. - Guardian EDIT

81% The Hour: Season 2 (TV, 2011-2012) Despite its sometimes frustrating quirks, I'd argue this series has been an improvement on last, and on a great deal of other British drama on offer. - Guardian EDIT

100% MI-5: Season 9 (TV, 2003-2011) By the end of last season, Spooks was looking a bit lacklustre. Now it seems to have raised its game. - Guardian EDIT

90% MI-5: Season 10 (TV, 2003-2011) And so Spooks bows out as it should - with Harry at his desk, top button fastened, emotions contained, Britain safe. - Guardian EDIT

100% MI-5: Season 8 (TV, 2003-2011) The show has passed its peak but not sunk so low as to be embarrassing, it still goes out on something of a high, and it's remembered as a decent example of its type. - Guardian EDIT

100% Black Books: Season 3 (TV, 2000-2004) Moran has never been funnier than when he's in full rambling, ranting, ridiculous flow as Bernard, who can make even a tax return funny. - Guardian EDIT

100% Borgen: Season 3 (TV, 2010-2013) We got a final twist that proved Birgitte's personal ambition has limits, while still delivering her - and many other characters - a happy ever after. - Guardian EDIT

100% Borgen: Season 2 (TV, 2010-2013) Even when the storytelling falters, Knudsen's central performance does not. - Guardian EDIT

100% Borgen: Season 1 (TV, 2010-2013) Borgen has painted a skilful portrait of a woman whose political ambition arguably became more important than everything else. - Guardian EDIT

No Score Yet Miranda: Season 1 (TV, 2011-2014) It's not clever - but it is funny. - Guardian EDIT

80% Homeland: Season 3 (TV, 2011-2018) The producers appear to have made a concerted effort to dial down the action and Carrie and Brodie's romance, and refocus on the agent and her mentor. - Guardian EDIT

93% Homeland: Season 2 (TV, 2011-2018) Fans will find themselves back in that state of Homeland nervous excitement, sitting a bit too upright on the sofa, fingernails in palms. - Guardian EDIT
