    Line of Duty

    I've just caught up with the most recent season. Surely I'm not the only one on the forum who watches it?

    I've watched all of them. It's fucking brilliant. Sometimes veers into being a little bit silly and unbelievable, but at its best it's brilliant. It reminds me a little bit of 24 in that respect, even when it's stupid it's always watchable. Can't get enough of loveable sexist Ted Hastings.

    Mad that this show was only deemed worth of three posts.

    Anyone watch the new episode on Sunday? Thought it was pretty good - the UCO reveal was kind of obvious, but I thought they set the scene for the new series pretty well.

    So many acronyms. Decent show though. Always good for a watch, keeps you guessing until the final episode.

    Brilliant first episode. Stephen Graham is so fucking good in everything he does.

    Oof they are leaning in heavy on pointing the finger at old Ted. The phone call in the first episode, the email popping up on his computer tonight. I refuse to believe it. I think he'll be on the other side of the table for an episode or two as "H" is revealed. We haven't had a big intense interview yet.

    Stephen Graham was excellent. Interesting how the dynamic has shifted between him and Lisa. Last week, she seemed anxious and out of her depth. But tonight it sounds like she has more experience with the gang than John. I love all the different sides that we've seen of him so far.

    Steve used to shag anything that moved before his injury. Poor guy.

    Last night's episode, fucking hell. So tense. Agree that Stephen Graham is always, always brilliant in everything, and particularly in this. The way he's gradually lost the plot has been incredible to watch.

    Is this really great enough to watch from Series One onwards? Watched the very first episode last night and my thoughts thus far is that it's very cheap BBC but half OK.

    I'd definitely recommend sticking with it. It can be a little silly but it's always engrossing and well-written. The first series has Lennie James in as well which makes it automatically great. With regards to the budget I can't remember the look of the first series but it got very big very quickly so I imagine it probably looks a lot better as it continues.

    Apparently Sian Reese-Williams is in the newest season?

    I went out on a date with her last year, she was a bit boring.

    Just caught up with the newest season. It’s building well.

    Ted is definitely not H, they’ve tried to make it more and more obvious this season that he might be, so definitely not.

    I feel like he may get roped into something by the property deal which makes him look like H or maybe even gets him killed looking like H and then they clear his name in another season.

    May be a bit out there, and obviously not based on any spoilers etc

    I think him getting rid of the laptop was because he had given into temptation with dodgy finances - having money issues was one of the very first things they talked about in season 1, in terms of appearing susceptible to criminal influence.

    I believe Gill Biggeloe is setting him up for a fall. She has previously admitted that she wants to slow the rate of bent cop convictions and she and Ted didn’t part on good terms when he heard that. This is the second time she has made a move on him. And if something happens to his wife next week, Ted needs Gill to provide an alibi of where he was. He could be framed for murder or blackmailed into doing something. Whether she’s H or not, I’m not sure.

    I like that they are exclusively looking for people with the surname starting with H for someone who could be code named H.

    These are apparently master police.

    They are laying on the Hastings = H red herring so thickly that I'm starting to think it's like a quadruple-bluff type scenario.

    I think it might be Harry Hill and this is how TV Burp comes back on our screens. It's unlikely but if you've been following the show as closely as I have there's definitely been breadcrumbs.

    That's all I'm saying

    What an episode. Tension was unreal.

    Stephen Graham did a tremendous job. Very surprised that they didn’t find a way of having a Ted vs John interrogation scene before the end.

    Loved the “definately” spelling mistake rearing its head again. I feel that Jed Mercurio is actually laughing at us with these hints.

    Steve will now forever be known as a “wee gobshite”.

    I’m definitely leaning into these theories that Kate is either bent or heading for a fall. She hasn’t had a huge amount to do and is doing well in her new job. She’s due a major twist or disaster.

    Thinking “Kyle” is bent - he recommended not tackling John in public when H didn’t show up at Victoria Square, so that John could be executed later.

    Loving all the callbacks, as far back as series 1. Jackie Laverty is still in a freezer and Ryan, the little boy who harassed Tony Gates, is now grown up and slitting throats.

    I wonder, since we know series 6 is confirmed, if this series ends with AC-12 completely shut down and the characters scattered; with poor Ted going down for his dodgy financial dealings and the revelation of what he did in Belfast all those years ago to link him with John.
