PLACED ON MODERATED MEMBERSHIP 6/11/12 - Sorry, the spam on LJ is getting beyond a joke. But have no fear! All genuine fans simply send me a quick PM with a note of your shows and I'll add you ASAP. - roseveare

This is a community devoted to being fannish about British crime dramas and TV detectives. All kinds of fanfiction, fan vids, fan art, and meta are not only welcome but actively encouraged. After all, our purpose is to promote more of the above!

Feel free to make an intro post when you join. Tell us your favourite shows!

Resource Posts

We're hoping to get 'sponsors' for each show subcategory to create 1) an introductory or 'pimping' post for each show, and 2) a resource index post listing links of interest - and these will be linked from the userinfo or a separate, 'main' index post.

Fanfic and Fic Challenges

Once we're fully up and running there will be periodic challenge prompts posted. Let us know if you have any more ideas for things you would like to see here!

Please place large or multiple pictures behind a cut-tag, and also please cut-tag all fic posts and provide an accurate rating (outside the cut tag) along with the following information form:

RATING: ***unrated fic posts with adult content will be deleted***

[NB. Please also give ratings if you are posting a link to fic elsewhere, or posting a reccommendation!]
