The 19 best TV shows made in Birmingham, chosen by Brummies

We asked our readers to pick the greatest television shows that have come out of Birmingham

Birmingham has been producing some amazing TV shows, across many genres for decades. From detective and crime dramas to comedy to non-fiction shows - there’s been some iconic TV shows that have been created in our city.

From BBC’s Pebble Mill to ATV’s Midlands studios - some incredible gems have been made over the years. We asked Brummies which shows made in Birmingham were their favourites and the response has been overwhelming.

From shows in the 60s to the recent Peaky Blinders phenomenon, the choices have been wide-ranging. With Masterchef soon moving to Birmingham and BBC Midlands moving to a larger venue in Digbeth - we can only expect that Brummies will have a huge catalogue of options to choose from in the future.

These will include Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner starring ITVX’s crime drama Joan. The show is being filmed across the West Midlands with Birmingham being one of the prime filming spots. Although we're sad to see daytime soap Doctors that has been made in Birmingham for over 20 years has been axed.

Here are the greatest Birmingham TV shows of all time, according to our readers:
