Detective Sergeant Steve Arnott (Martin Compston), Detective Constable Kate Fleming (Vicky McClure) and Superintendent Ted Hastings (Adrian Dunbar) are joined by newly-appointed Detective Constable Georgia Trotman (Jessica Raine) to investigate a complex case rich in unexpected twists and turns.

I enjoyed series 1 and series 2 is better. The characters have progressed a bit and the role of D.I. Lindsay Denton is superbly played.
I'll not spoil the ending, but the "villain" would certainly not suddenly become stupid enough to be caught so easily, and with the evidence finally available any barely competent counsel would get an acquittal. Perhaps "catching the baddy" was important for a happy ending, but it was not really likely and a bit trite.

Edge-of-the-seat thriller with corruption in the police force, people in positions of responsibility swapping speeding spoints with their spouses (wonder where they got that idea from) and a quite incredible interrogation scene in one episode which keeps the tension going in one tiny room for 17 minutes straight. One of the best crime dramas around.

Watching series 1 first is important to understand the main characters. Series 2 is every bit as good as series 1 with the exception of the ending, which I thought was a complete anti-climax. What started as a gripping drama which made for compelling watching ended in a rushed and confusing ending which made me frequently unwind to try and understand what was going on. But in saying that I am really looking forward to watching series 3.

After the opening hook of a violent ambush of police escorting a protected witness, suspicion falls on the only officer to survive unscathed, DI Lindsay Denton. Three aspects set apart the ensuing complex drama: the powerful, well-scripted interrogation scenes, the high quality of acting in which body language reveals so much about personalities and relationships and, above all, the skilful portrayal of Denton by Keeley Hawes, who tantalisingly convinces us by turns of her guilt or innocence.

Perhaps you cannot award less than four stars to a series with such power to grip millions of viewers, and to trigger such large-scale speculation as to who is guilty of what and why. I understand why the author wanted to leave what I think he described as loosely tied bows to pave the way for a third series. However, it seems unsatisfactory to me if people are still asking fundamental questions at the end because they are confused about exactly what happened, and, insofar as they think they understand, there appear to be flaws and contradictions. Apparently, Mercurio himself spotted a vital omission at the last minute, just in time to insert another scene, but there seem to me to be quite a few that he missed from the viewer's angle. It may of course help if, unlike me, one has seen Series 1. At least one would have the advantage of knowing more about some of the characters, such as dodgy detective Dot Cottan or disabled DC Morton who makes a sudden unexplained appearance.

I agree with the many comments and critics who feel that the last episode is a serious let-down - rushed and disjointed, with scenes included too obviously "to sew things up", yet often failing to do so.

In Brazil, many years ago, I was told that cop was synonim for uniformed fellon. Obviously
this is an overstatement most of the time, but not always, if you believe reality frequently surpasses fiction.

A good exciting plot revolving around a shootout of 2 police officers and a witness, leaving DI Denton a suspect. AC12 use Fleming undercover, then take Denton in for questioning. Before she is locked up, she says 'I'm innocent" leaving the viewers uncertain. With twists and side stories, its a truly excellent piece of drama, my only complaint is the ending, which was disappointing to say the least.

This is the second in the Line of Duty series. The first was very good but this has stepped it up another notch. The plot is very complicated and has you guessing right to the last episode and, again, the acting is superb. I only buy these series from TV when I have been 'blown away' by the plot lines and acting and, as soon as this finished, I decided I had to have it.
