Thanks to my dad, I love British culture and television. That’s why I started HipAnglophile. I wanted to share my favorite British television shows and travel locations. My dad introduced me to the Benny Hill Show when I was 9 years old. I also remember quite a few evenings watching The Avengers, Doctor Who, James Bond movies, and The Saint.
