What is Criminal about?
The police procedural’s 12 unique stories – set in the UK, France, Germany and Spain – with each episode filmed in the local language.
Criminal is set exclusively within the confines of a police interview room and is described by Netflix as a “stripped down, cat-and-mouse drama” which “focuses on the intense mental conflict between detectives and suspects”.
How has Criminal been compared to Line of Duty?

Both the concept and the cast of Criminal have reminded many people of Line of Duty.
Jed Mercurio’s BBC1 police anti-corruption show is famous for its tense interrogation scenes, and Criminal looks set to be made up of those entirely.
What’s more, Criminal has two Line Of Duty stars in its cast, in the form of Rochenda Sandall who played organised crime group member Lisa McQueen and Lee Ingleby who appeared as the husband of DCI Roz Huntley.
Where was Criminal filmed?
Despite being set across four European countries, all 12 episodes of Criminal were filmed at Netflix’s production hub at Ciudad de la Tele in Madrid.
Who made Criminal?
Each episode is written and directed by talent from their respective countries, but the overall series showrunners are Killing Eve’s George Kay and Endeavour’s Jim Field Smith.
