The BBC is no stranger to creating killer TV shows… I know, that was an awful pun, but I couldn’t resist.
London Kills is the new popular British show that airs during the daytime. Its storylines are full of mystery and will grip you from the off.
But what happens if you’re not in the UK? Maybe you’re working, living, or travelling overseas.
Chances are, you won’t be able to watch London Kills due to the BBC’s restrictions that stop you watching when you’re outside of the country.
Luckily, this is where I come in.
By the end of this article, you’ll know exactly what you need to unblock any BBC content from anywhere, including London Kills.
Where is London Kills being shown?
London Kills is available on the UK TV channel BBC One and the on-demand streaming service BBC iPlayer.
However, if you’re outside the UK right now, you won’t be able to access the show due to the regional restrictions the BBC places on its TV content.
In the next section, you’ll discover how to avoid these restrictions ensuring you can watch all your favourite shows just like as if you were at home.
How to stream London Kills where you are
To watch London Kills in your country, you need to use a VPN app.
Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) are security apps you can install onto your phones, laptops, tablets, etc, to increase your online security.
But they also help you access regionally blocked services, such as the BBC iPlayer.
They work by masking your location, making websites and apps think you’re somewhere else. So you could be spending two weeks in Orlando, but make it appear like you’re still in the UK.
Best of all, the VPN app does all the hard work for you, all you need to do is click a couple of buttons.
Where to get a VPN
There are many VPNs you can choose from and a quick search of Google will leave you with more questions than answers.
Thankfully, we’ve tested all the highly recommended ones from across the web and found ExpressVPN comes out on top for streaming from iPlayer.
ExpressVPN is the fastest VPN provider around, offering killer speeds and an excellent VPN app.
But if you want some other options to consider, be sure to check out NordVPN and Surfshark VPN.
All three services work well with BBC iPlayer (not all VPNs do) and come with a 30-day money-back guarantee and while ExpressVPN takes our #1 spot, you’re free to choose.

What’s London Kills about?
Detective Inspector David Bradford’s wife has been missing for over three months; it’s a case that even he can’t seem to solve.
Meanwhile, he’s tasked with leading a cracking team of elite detectives to investigate gruesome murders that occur on the streets of London.
Can David juggle the pressures of leading his team while struggling to come to terms with his personal life’s issues?
The show is gripping; its storylines are packed with mystery and drama, everything a crime show needs to keep you hooked from the first episode.
With three seasons (and counting), there are plenty of episodes to keep you busy for a few days.
Each episode leaves you needing to watch the next; it’s not a show you can stop watching easily.
TV reviewer John Powers of NPR called the show “a cop series that keeps you coming back for more” and that if you’re like him, “you’ll probably watch it quickly”.
What I enjoy about the show is that each episode gives you a satisfying form of closure as each crime is solved, but there is an overarching storyline regarding Detective Bradford’s missing wife. It’s a perfect balance if you ask me.
