Though it was a British mini series, please consider including 'The Night Manager'

There are thousands of foreign tv series. Do you have any way to decide the options? number of votes? rating?

'Good poll but I agree that it could use some parameters. For starters, I noticed that all of the series have a rating of at least 8.0 except for:

#15
#20
#22
#25
#26
#30
#33

So you already have one guideline if you want to use it. I did two searches; the results are below but I couldn't figure out how to keep US series out so you'd have to go through them yourself. I could probably help if you want it. 

Since the first one (https://www.imdb.com/search/title/?title_type=tv_series&release_date=2000-01-01,2019-12-31&u...,) yielded 401 results, albeit many of them American so it's to as many as it seems but, still, I tightened up the search terms to :

Released 2000-2018
Rating 8.0 - 10
Min # of Votes: 20000

The results are here:
https://www.imdb.com/search/title/?title_type=tv_series&release_date=2000-01-01,2018-12-31&u...,

You don't have to use those search criteria, of course; it's just an example but this list would probably be pretty easy and quick to get through. You could also leave out comedies, documentaries, and/or reality TV and/or other genres and shrink the results even more. : )

FYC:

Perhaps instead of 'Xena' and 'McLeod's Daughters,' which have lower ratings than the rest, you might want to consider

Endeavor

and

Prime Suspect (starring Helen Mirren) This is actually a series of mini-series, though, so I'm not sure it qualifies - what a strange way to classify a TV show... Anyway, if Prime Suspect's format is too diffuse, following is another really good series - 8.4 rating...

Foyle's War

I updated the list, based on rating (mostly Top 250). Main parameter is minimum 20.000 votes. It's only TV Series, no Mini Series or animated series.

Accidentally. I'll swap it with another series. Documentaries are also not included.
