BBC drama Happy Valley has been named as one of the best British crime dramas in a recent poll by the Radio Times.

The programme, which is set in Calderdale and written by Sally Wainwright, came fifth on the list and was pipped to the post by Endeavour, Line of Duty and Foyle's War. Classic crime drama Inspector Morse topped the list.

The Radio Times poll, which received over 10,000 votes, asked readers to choose their favourite British TV crime of all time from a list of 50 programmes that spanned the last seven decades.

Happy Valley has seen two series so far, both filmed in and around Calderdale and starred Sarah Lancashire as police officer Catherine Cawood.

The programme was created by Sally Wainwright who is currently working on her latest project, Gentleman Jack, a drama based on the life of Anne Lister and filmed at Shibden Hall in Halifax.
