Line of Duty
A record-breaking 12.8 million viewers tuned into the finale of Jed Mercurio’s hard-hitting police drama. And it had the nation gripped with good reason. Over six seasons it delivered tightly-wound, adrenaline-fuelled storylines, terrific ensemble acting (with appearances from the UK’s Stephen Graham, Kelly McDonald, Keeley Hawes and Thandiwe Newton) and gruesome but engrossing plot twists.
After refusing to participate in a cover-up, DS Steve Arnott (Martin Compston) is recruited by Superintendent Ted Hastings (Adrian Dunbar), head of anti-corruption unit AC-12. There he joins undercover office Kate Fleming (Vicky McClure) as they investigate corrupt members of the police force.
