ICONIC BRITISH SYMBOLS
From the Queen and the Union Jack, to the Tower of London and the London Tube…
WORN OR INSPIRED BY THE DUCHESS OF CAMBRIDGE
Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, is a fashion icon, and fashionistas on both sides of the pond want what she wears.
FOR TEA, PUDDING & MORE
A day is always better with a cuppa. It’s even better with pudding, aka dessert. And while British food has a bad rap, we’ve had delicious dishes throughout our travels. We’ve even cooked up some!
THE NAUGHTINESS & BRILLIANCE OF SHAKESPEARE
William Shakespeare. The Bard. ‘Nuff said.
GIFTS INSPIRED BY FAN FAVORITE SHOWS
Jenna Coleman is gone as Peter Capaldi’s 12th Doctor’s companion from Doctor Who. Sherlock is finally returning to telly after two years with a special set in the Victorian era. And stateside fans of Downton Abbey are sobbing into their tea and crumpets, as the show’s sixth season is its last.
GREAT BRITISH TV SHOWS YOU HAVEN’T SEEN IN THE US
These DVDs are for shows that will be on our list of favorite Brit TV shows that premiered in the UK in 2015. They might be shown in the US in the future, but if they’re not, it would be a shame for stateside fans to miss them, because they’re brilliant. Viewers in the US will need a multi-region/region-free DVD player to watch these DVDs as they’re coded for Region 2 (UK/Europe).
Visit the Recently-Released British TV DVDs page for more DVD ideas.
(For Brit TV fans who also enjoy English-subtitled foreign-language shows, visit The Euro TV Place for DVDs from France, Italy, Sweden, and other European countries.)
MULTI-REGION/REGION-FREE DVD PLAYERS
In addition to the above DVDs, there are so many other fabulous UK shows that never make it to US telly or streaming services, but are available on Region 2 DVDs. With one of these players, Brit TV fans can play discs coded for the UK, US, and other regions, and the world of international telly can be their oyster.
STREAMING MEDIA DEVICES
A must-have device for British TV fans is a streaming media player. These handy-dandy doodads let viewers watch loads of content 24/7 on telly instead of just the computer. Many streaming channels are free, while others, such as Acorn TV, Amazon Prime Instant Video, Hulu Plus, and Netflix, require a paid subscription.
DO MORE THAN STREAM BRITISH TV SHOWS
PlayOn lets subscribers watch and record streaming videos from popular sites like Hulu on computers, TVs, tablets, and mobile devices, and skip ads, too. And services such as the quick and easy Unblock-us, as well as Avast SecureLine VPN and vyprVPN, both of which have built-in security functions to protect one’s privacy, give subscribers located almost anywhere in the world the ability to access shows available in other countries.
The most versatile gift for Brit TV fans is a gift card. For folks who like to shop at Amazon (and/or stream titles from Amazon Instant Video), there’s the Amazon Gift Card. The Walmart gift card can be used in store, online, and for the company’s Vudu VoD service. For gift cards that can be used elsewhere, consider these:
