Line of Duty
is blue heaven if you’re a nitty-gritty police procedure nerd like me – the properly conducted taped interviews (with solicitors present!), the rules and regulations; I even love that the cops wear their passes on lanyards with POLICE stamped across them in big white letters.
It helps to hang on to these details when writer Jed Mercurio asks us to take another big leap of imagination as his stunning tale of murder and corruption enters even darker waters.
Poor Det Insp Lindsay Denton (the excellent Keeley Hawes) is having a terrible time in prison and things just get worse. Meanwhile the anti-corruption cops have to use their lightest tread when their inquiries lead them towards a very big fish. And this might be the time to polish your memories of series one, because you’re going to need them.
Denton implies that Dryden was embroiled in a wider conspiracy, and the discovery of video recordings made by the witness while in protective custody appears to confirm this. Arnott uncovers evidence that a tracker had been planted on one of the convoy vehicles, and when Denton is given special dispensation to visit her dying mother, the AC-12 officers realise too late how much danger she may be in. Drama, starring Keeley Hawes.
