Keeley Hawes has apologised to Line of Duty fans for ‘fibbing’ about her return to the BBC2 crime drama. This time last year, Hawes told Radio Times that her character, former DI Lindsay Denton, would definitely not be back for series three, saying “There’s nothing for me in there… It’s done and dusted. I’ve done it.”
So after her character made a shock appearance in episode two on Thursday night, a slightly sheepish Hawes took to Twitter to say sorry and that she was “thrilled” to be back…

Not that there was any need for an apology – Line of Duty fans were stunned and elated in equal measure after a brilliantly dramatic episode that also included the deaths of two major characters…

Apparently the NHS have fixed more broken chins tonight than in one night ever.

The only way they could improve #LineOfDuty in my book is sling it all on iPlayer in one go so I could binge-watch the bejesus out of it.
