7 of the Greatest Whodunnit Detective TV Masterpieces
You love murder-mysteries? You think identifying clues and solving a murder is thrilling? You believe you could do a better job at this than some TV Series characters who seem to take way too long to find the culprit?
Then these shows are definitely for you!
As a whodunnit TV Series junkie myself, if I could recommend only 8 shows that revolve around that genre, these are certainly the best ones to dedicate your time to.
Agatha Christie's Poirot (1989–2013)
Sherlock (2010- )
Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries (2012- )
Veronica Mars (2004-2007)
Agatha Christie's Marple (2004-2014)
Endeavour (2012- )

If Sherlock doesn't come back, I'm gonna have a breakdown. Sadly, though, I heard it was done. :(
Poirot was always excellent and Veronica Mars was just plain fun. Should have a spot on here for the Midsommer Murder Mysteries, though.
I like my mysteries fairplay
I also think that the Sherlock Holmes series (1984-1994) starring Jeremy Brett as Sherlock Holmes should have a place on your list :)
I ❤ Psych, Sherlock, Veronica Mars, and Poirot. They are all incredible shows.
HELLLOOOO Columbo? Lol One of the best & you chose likes of Psych over Columbo. Not saying Psych wasn't fun but how can anyone miss one of the best detectives. Loved Poirot as well few I've seen.
You missed True Detective, but only the first season
Just a couple of related mentions I like the modern US twist of Sherlock Holmes (Elementary) and speaking of Endeavour I am currently reading the original novel series of Inspector Morse (thanks to my Amazon gift cards), I plan to watch the TV adaptation online afterwards also the spin of "Lewis" deserves a mention/
I am really getting into Scandinavian Detective shows Bron (also US version the Bridge and UK/French The tunnel), The Killing, Beck, Arne Dahl (Thank you BBC 4 and Walter Presents on More 4/All 4)
