List of The Best Channel 4 Shows

Without further ado, here are our Top Five Box Sets:

5) St Elsewhere (1982) - stateside medical drama. Created by Joshua Brand and John Falsey (Northern Exposure, I’ll Fly Away), St. Elsewhere situates itself in an underfunded, understaffed fictional Boston hospital.

It centres upon teaching doctors, Dr. Westphall (Ed Flanders), Dr Auschlander (Norman Lloyd) and Dr. Craig (William Daniels) as they guide medical students through the difficulties of medical decisions and dilemmas. The gritty portrayal of the unglamorous side of the medical profession won the show 13 Emmy Awards and 5 Golden Globes.

4) The Inbetweeners (2008) - we had to. All 4’s box set platform allows you to search through box sets according to popularity, it comes as no surprise then, that this comedic classic sits firmly at number 2.

Starring the familiar faces of Simon Bird, Joe Thomas, Blake Harrison and James Buckley as Will, Simon, Neil and Jay, a group of suburban sixth-formers that attend Rudge Park Comprehensive.

Despite receiving a somewhat lukewarm reception upon its initial airing, The Inbetweeners has become a British national treasure (adolescent anecdotes, romantic humiliation, crude humour and all), and has won a BAFTA and multiple British Comedy Awards.

3) Derry Girls (2018) - you know it, but have you seen it? A British sitcom penned by Lisa McGee (Being Human, The White Queen), follows an ensemble of school girl friends, Erin (Saoirse Monica Jackson), Orla (Louisa Harland), Clare (Nicola Coughlan), Michelle (Jamie-Lee O’Donnell) and Michelle’s cousin, 'the wee English fella' James (Dylan Llewelyn) as they rebelliously navigate Derry, Northern Ireland in the 1990s.

In series 3 of Derry Girls, it's a constant laugh out loud non-stop reel of gags, this box set is a light-hearted treat for those feeling down about the current state of the world. The show’s accolades include a 98% rating on Rotten Tomatoes and two BAFTA awards.

2) Sugar Rush (2005) - an oldie but a goodie. Adapted from Julie Burchill’s novel of the same name, Sugar Rush is a Brighton-based lesbian drama that centres around teenager Kim (Olivia Hallinan) and her raging feelings for best friend, Sugar (Lenora Crichlow).

Released at the height of the Skins era, Sugar Rush capitalises on the low-fi gritty portrayal of young British life with a queer focus. Back in 2005 the show was a progressive hit, and unfortunately it still remains a much needed source of representation, owing to the painful lack of lesbian drama produced in today’s TV landscape. The show won an Emmy Award in 2006 and was nominated for a BAFTA in 2007.

1) Chewing Gum (2015) - an underrated gem. Written and starred-in by Michaela Coel (I May Destroy You, Black Mirror), Chewing Gum follows Beyoncé obsessed 24 year-old shop-assistant, Tracy Gordon.

In her quest to grow up and experience the world (most importantly, sex), Tracy realises that the more she learns the less she understands. Coel won a BAFTA for her performance and the show boasts a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
