Do you fancy a weekend with aliens, monsters or the undead? We have you covered. Here are 19 British sci-fi series you can watch from the comfort of home.

Science fiction means a lot of things to a lot of people. For some, it means wild adventures in space. For others, it means a chance to explore the darker side of the human psyche. Or maybe to give some thought to how we’d survive a zombie apocalypse.

British television has always been full of great sci-fi programs. A little show by the name of Doctor Who ha been running for over fifty years now, after all. But British sci-fi isn’t just about aliens with blue boxes – it’s about pushing boundaries. It’s about making us think. It’s about making us reconsider our place in the world we know. (And, yes, a fair amount of them are about monsters or magic.)

This list has a little bit of everything from straight science fiction, to fantasy, to horror. Whether your’e interested in straight escapism, adventure, magic, deep thoughts on the meaning of humanity, debate about our purpose in the universe, or dinosaurs, you’ll find something to like here.

So settle in, and start watching.
