BBC One has way more than 'Sherlock'

You're obsessed with Sherlock, but here are nine other BBC One gems you really need to watch.

#3/11:

'Doctor Who'

#3/11:

'Doctor Who'

Obviously, if you haven't yet tried Doctor Who, it's a must for BBC One newbies. The science-fiction series has been around for decades, and while a bit dated at times, it has a certain Britsh charm that's difficult to escape. At the very least, Doctor Who is the perfect show to watch if you want your friends to think you've delved deep into the BBC One lifestyle.

'The Graham Norton Show'

#4/11:

'The Graham Norton Show'

This talk show is hilarious and infinitely silly, mostly because it doesn't feel fake or overly censored. Hosted by comedian Graham Norton, The Graham Norton Show creates a more relaxed talk show atmosphere, with most guests appearing together for the full hour. It's definitely different from most American late-night talk shows, but it also provides for some pretty wacky moments, like a magic competition between Benedict Cumberbatch and Eddie Redmayne

'My Mother and Other Strangers'

#5/11:

'My Mother and Other Strangers'

Set in the 1940s during WWII, My Mother and Other Strangers tells the story of the Coyne family, whose lives are turned upside down when a U.S. military base comes to their town. Think love affairs, culture clashes and, obviously, pretty emotional wartime drama. 

#6/11:

'The Missing'

#6/11:

'The Missing'

If you were a fan of The Killing, you'll love The Missing, an intense drama that follows one case of missing children every season. The seasons are connected by Detective Julien Baptiste, who in Season 1 is tasked with finding a young boy in France. In Season 2, Baptiste faces a new case when a girl returns to her hometown 11 years after being abducted. Warning: not for the faint of heart. 

#7/11:

'Tracey Ullman's Show'

#7/11:

'Tracey Ullman's Show'

Comedian Tracey Ullman's sketch show is topical, funny and a force to be reckoned with. With one season already under it's belt, Tracey Ullman's Show is currently prepping for a second season. 

#8/11:

'Moving On'

#8/11:

'Moving On'

Moving On is an anthology series — every episode tells a different story, each about the theme of moving on. Some are about common life decisions, like one about a mother wants to stop her son from moving out, others are more dramatic, like an episode about an adopted son who learns he will be deported on his 18th birthday. 

#9/11:

'Poldark'

#9/11:

'Poldark'

Another period piece, Poldark takes place in 18th-century Cornwall when Ross Poldark comes back home after fighting in the American Revolution. As with any great period piece, viewers can expect some class tension and a good love story or two. Think of it like Outlander, but without the time travel.

#10/11:

'In The Club'

#10/11:

'In The Club'

Six pregnant women meet and become friends in a prenatal class in In The Club. Follow their adventures into parenthood while learning about their backstories in this bittersweet series. 

#11/11:

'Our Girl'

#11/11:

'Our Girl'

Our Girl's first season focused on the journey of Molly, a young woman who joins the British Army and is sent to Afghanistan. Season 2 switched gears, instead telling the story of Georgie Lane, an army medic sent on a humanitarian trip to Nairobi. Both seasons feature wartime drama and kick-ass female heroines fighting hard to work in a man's world. Sounds good, right?
