What. An. Ending.


Last night we were treated to the twist-packed mind-melting final episode of Line of Duty series four. And from Roz Huntley’s confession to Ted Hastings’ super pistol aim, to the unveiling of the balaclava man men, the BBC's corrupt cop drama gave everything viewers wanted: TV drama at its best.

In particular, telly-watchers singled out Thandie Newton’s performance as DCI Roz Huntley, the “wee witch” who confessed to murdering Tim Ifield, before she turned to arrest criminal lawyer Jimmy Lakewell.

And although cops Steve Arnott (Martin Compston), Kate Fleming (Vicky McClure) and Ted Hastings (Adrian Dunbar) saved AC-12 by the episode’s end, some said they should put their efforts into another role…

In fact, it looks like the soon-to-made Ted Hastings Party could do well in the upcoming general election…

Hopefully we'll find out the answers in the next series (which we may be waiting quite a while for).
