Abstract

This dissertation is aimed at understanding the ways in which American viewers interact with and read British detective dramas and what pleasures they may experience from this interaction. It addresses a gap in critical knowledge of American audiences' reception of British media through a focus on the responses of a selected audience to a questionnaire and interview as well as an analysis of a separate audience's group discussions on British television programming. The majority of the dissertation is an analysis of this empirical data which is further contextualised within a consideration of the marketing and promotion of these programmes in the press and in relation to the British tourist industry and concepts of heritage.
