It has been long established that television dramas and other television programs greatly affect the manner in which audiences perceive their realities along with the actual state of British politics, society, and culture, among other things. The debate whether popular television programs sufficiently represent the naturalism and realities of its audience has been continuously argued by various groups. Television critics have, then, conceptualized the term non-naturalism and modernism as a result of this contention. This chapter explores the non-naturalistic facet and criticism of British television dramas as well as the accuracy of its depiction of reality.
