Line of Duty fans were relieved (and a little surprised) to see DS Steve Arnott regain consciousness after a brutal attack and four-story fall onto concrete that would have killed a lesser man.
The copper, played by Martin Compston, was attacked by the balaclava-wearing killer who clubbed him with a baseball bat and sent him hurtling through the air onto the concrete floor below in last week’s shocking cliffhanger.
He may have an impressive list of injuries (fractured skill, fractured vertebrae, broken pelvis, broken leg, busted ribs) but most importantly, he “the Waistcoat” isn’t dead.
