British accent

I am trying to familiarize myself with the British accent in a casual way.

So, watching movies and TV series off the top of my head since I always enjoy good movies and series.

Does anyone have any good recommendation for movies/TV series with British accent?

Thank you.

Depending on your age and taste you might like "The Inbetweeners" which has lots of slang, informal expressions, swearing and everything that reflects the British culture.

Here's a good article about "British Accent":

Also, a big fan of Game of Thrones! Good to know some cast are from UK! :O

There isn't a majority of people with one accent. However, Sherlock, Being Human, Misfits, Utopia, Skins, and Him&Her are excellent shows. You can't really go wrong with a lot of BBC3 & Channel 4 shows.
