    This year is off to a great start for Anglophiles. Downton Abbey is back, we Yanks got the new Sherlock right on time, and there's a slate of new British shows coming through the pipeline (and across the Atlantic). What a time to be alive, chaps. In other words, it's time to put the kettle on and settle in for some telly. Consider this your primer to what dramas you'll soon be gushing over, what comedies you need to catch up on, and why 2016 will probably be the year you pretty much don't get off the couch. Don't blame us: blame BBC America and the two Bens. (That'd be Cumberbatch and Whishaw, by the way.) Read on to see what's in store for fans of British shows. Something's got to fill that Crawley-shaped hole, right?
