Scotland is one of my favorite places to visit, and Wales is a country I need to explore more of, but we can all get glimpses of both from theses Scottish and Welsh TV shows streaming stateside right now.

Flags of Scotland and Wales

Compared to what seems like a kazillion series set across England, these lists are short by comparison, indeed. If it’s any consolation, the number of shows from Scotland were fewer by seven until Netflix added some of that country’s most popular comedies.

As an aside, if you have a Netflix DVD subscription, I highly recommend that you rent Hamish Macbeth and Doctor Finlay. Both are terrific! The former, a mystery-dramedy that stars Robert Carlyle (Once Upon a Time), is loosely based on the “Hamish Macbeth Mystery” novels by M.C. Beaton (“Agatha Raisin Mysteries”). The latter, a period drama that premiered in the US in the early ’90s on Masterpiece Theatre, is the popular follow-up series to Doctor Finlay’s Casebook, the long-running (black-and-white) TV and radio series based on the A.J. Cronin novella A Country Doctor.


  1. Hinterland (crime drama/mystery) — Acorn TV, Acorn TV on Amazon, iTunes, Netflix
  2. The Indian Doctor (period dramedy) — Amazon Video, Hulu, iTunes
  3. NEW! MumDem (Comedy) — Amazon Prime & Instant Video
