Line Of Duty Series 5

Fucking hell, can't wait for this. Hope Stephen Graham's character lasts longer than one episode.

I figured they'd eventually end up with Ted "Hold on there fella" Hastings being the one investigated by AC-12, and there are a few hints suggesting that might be the case.

Looking forward to this, even though the end of s4 was a bit silly.

This gets better with each series. If only other UK dramas had the same quality (please tell me if there are). Excited.

Rewatching Series 1 and I really think that little cunt Ryan got off way too easily considering all the nasty shit he's involved in. In his first appearance alone he gets another dealer brutally murdered for no reason, the kid's a psychopath!

Although I suppose would be satisfying pay-off if we came back to him years later to find out he's now running Tommy Hunter's old mob or something along those lines.

Bodyguard was full of holes. This has like one or two forgivable holes per series. And I give it pass because it's UK drama.

(Funny thing, on Hassan Minhaj's Patriot Act there was a little dig at the Bodyguard being Islamaphobic. Don't know what it's like to be an American, but v. surprised they couldn't see how bbc liberal left the entire show was)

I must admit I shouted "Oh, FUCK OFF!!" when I saw that come up on the trailer.
Wasn't Bodyguard originally sold as "from the makers of Line of Duty"?

Bodyguard was a fantastic idea on paper, but damn after the first 2 episodes it really got very silly. The ending also was very "eh wtf" ,,not sure if it writers trying to be clever or someone from The Spectator wrote it.

It's absolute garbage but is oddly compelling.  As with Luther, if this is the peak of BRITISH DRAMA then we're fucked.  It's a weird, thin cartoon in which nobody acts or speaks like a normal human would.  Although they say 'mate' a lot to mask it.

I agree, its a cartoon version of great police thrillers of bygone years (80s and early 90s). The actors are good to very good, which papers over the cracks. But it's no The Bill 1992-1996.

I'm not a big fan of police dramas, but I've watched Cracker recently, and it's brilliant (and really ahead of its time). the bbc knew how to make great tv in those days.

Cracker was an ITV series. It was absolutely fantastic, though, I agree.

I didn't like Coltrane at the time so have not watched it, but that will change now.

It's a top tier crime drama, a classic. You will definitely enjoy it.

Val McDermid's always on about how good the early The Bill was. Does it hold up for a watch nowadays?

Not as much as peak Bergerac, but the early Bill certainly has old school grit and charm.

Wire in the Blood is another classic that holds up well. Especially given its familiar locations. Tony's office being at Newcastle University, for example.

God, Wire in the Blood would kick off an absolute shitstorm if aired today given the plot of episode one.

I've been going over these two photos for ten minutes and still can't work out what you're getting at - am I forgetting something important from the last series or is the clue just in the photos and I'm not seeing it?

Can't remember - the "mastermind"(?) behind some nasty criminal activity (sex trafficking?) was a senior cop with the surname beginning with H. Those photos were posted up by the small cop I think as a list of all those in the force (section/branch?) that fit the bill.


Re: Line Of Duty Series 5

The implication is that "H" is one of the individuals named by Waldron on his Paedo List(along with deceased mob boss Tommy Hunter), and there's only one "H" surname that appears on both, Hargreaves. Could still be a red herring though.

I've already forgotten everything that's happened on this show since they revealed the 'caddy'. How much do you reckon I should rewatch to get back up to speed?

It was Hyde-Albert on both lists, not Hargreaves. Sorry I was on my phone when I posted that earlier.
