The finale of BBC’s Bodyguard may have been packed with scenes of nail-biting tension and a twist that completely flipped the series, but for many fans, the evening’s talking point was a new Line of Duty trailer.
Immediately following the Bodyguard, BBC1 revealed a teaser for the upcoming fifth series of creator Jed Mercurio’s other drama…
The short clip didn’t give away too much, but viewers glimpsed Detective Sergeant Kate Fleming (Vicky McClure), with Superintendent Ted Hastings (Adrian Dunbar) declaring: “AC-12 is being met with an institutional cover-up!” Business as usual then.
So, although the trailer really only revealed the change in Arnott’s appearance (this being old news for those who saw an earlier picture of the cast), it still got viewers SERIOUSLY hyped for upcoming episodes…
Sorry, but a #LineOfDuty comeback has made my bloody night!!!!
