Currently I'm watching the original The House of Cards made in 1990, not the American remake,  it's very interesting watching the evil Francis Urquhart rise and fall, this is a high quality British drama is a pleasure to watch. I have yet to watch the American version I only hope the Americans do a better job with this high quality drama than they did with the TV program Life on Mars. The original British version was perfect and high quality the American remake was an abortion and should of never been made. I will be the few people who have seen both versions of this franchise.

I know my wife is hooked on Yes Minister, Black Books, Midsummer Murders and any Agatha Christy mainly David Suchet's Poirot

wait a moment.
these are all 'foreign'
these can't be shown in any other country lest people begin to question the status quo of their government as House of Cards was close to the bone.
Even 'Yes Minister', although a comedy, is too close for comfort as a satire on most political systems, of whatever variety you care to choose.

All are examples of well written TV
