The two series of this program are absolutely brilliant. Great scripts, excellent acting, everything about the shows is top-class. The Brits certainly know how to make quality drama.

It's rare you get good, original British cop dramas with complex storylines and strong acting on TV these days. Both these series of Line Of Duty are excellent. The stories in S1 and S2 are very different to each other in their rendition, although they share the common premise of the police anti-corruption unit (AC-12) investigating bent coppers with 4 of the same detectives present in both series.

S2 is basically a complex whodunnit story with a police prime suspect who may or may not be an innocent party to an armed ambush on a witness-protection convoy, while the target was being moved from a safe-house, and where she was the leading driver. You are kept guessing until the final episode whether that suspect knows more about the ambush than she is telling or whether she has been set up.

In S1 we already know who the 'bent cop' is early on as he has some minor form. Except is he really as bad as AC-12 seem to believe he is? Or is he being victimised because maybe AC-12 are focusing on the wrong cop when drug-war killings are discovered on an estate where he is the SIO? Again you will have to follow all the eps to find out who is the actual baddie.

These are dramas you can revisit time and again even though you know the outcome, because the acting and plot development are so good in both series. Definitely worth buying.

This show has been broadcasted only recently on French TV, and after watching it I decided to buy the DVDs straightaway. This cop show stands out from the others as villains, but also heroes, are flawed persons bound to make mistakes - with terrible consequences for their loved ones or their colleagues.
Series One presents the character of DS Steve Arnott (Martin Compston), a young copper who has refused to cover up a fatal police shooting; he is then assigned to the Anti-Corruption Unit 12, led by Superintendant Hastings (Adrian Dunbar). Arnott's first case is a high-profile one as DCI Gates (Lennie James) is suspected of laddering. However, there is a bigger subplot: Gates is actually blackmailed by gangsters who have killed his mistress (Gina McKee) and planted his fingerprints on the murder weapon. Gates wrongly thinks he can get out of this mess on his own whereas he's under constant surveillance by DS Kate Fleming (Vicky McClure), an undercover AC-12 officer working on his team. Arnott is soon confronted with missing evidence, dead ends and fingers-cutting gangsters...
Series Two is focused on DI Lindsay Denton (Keeley Hawes), who is suspected of having facilitated the murder of a protected witness in an ambush. With three cops killed in the incident, Denton is ostracized by her colleagues and interrogated by Hastings, Fleming and Arnott who point out at her financial troubles and the non-respect of procedures during the witness' transfert. But Denton is a strong-minded woman: nothing cannot make her change her claims of being set-up, neither the AC-12 team's investigations nor the brutalities she endures in prison - a situation which makes the viewers wonder if she could be, indeed, an innocent woman.

We bought the 1st series as we thought we hadn't seen it and it was quite a bargain to get the two series together. As it turns out we had seen it a couple of years back but, both in our late 70's, we don't remember a lot about it!
We are thoroughly enjoying it and are,as usual, delighted with the service we get from Amazon

Loved this. Hard to stop watching - had to know what was going to happen. So well acted and believable It is well worth the 5 star rating despite the rather rushed ending.

One word - AMAZING! Truly gripping from start to finish - wasn't happy until I had finished both series because I needed to know what was happening. Definitely recommend.

By prisrob TOP 50 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 3 April 2016
Format: DVD
When a cop starts thinking that the 'sexy cases' are all his, you know that man is in trouble. DCI Tony Gates is that man, played by Lennie James, who has it all and wants more. 'Line of Duty' is a dark, brooding, gripping police drama, that will have you on the edge of your seat. It is violent, prepare yourself. Not much to smile about in these five episodes.

The series starts off with a terrorist case that was bungled by the police, and a cover-up is underway. Except DS Arnott, played by, Martin Compston, one of the bunglers won't play and wants to tell the truth. He is transferred to A-12, the Corruption Unit. This is not a popular unit, investigating your own. DS Arnott , as it turns out has an 'off' and 'on' personality, sometimes he is with his team, and sometimes he is not. What he does have is a brilliant investigative mind, and a good boss, DCI Hastings. Hastings is after DCI Tony Gates, he believes what is purported to be all good, is in fact a method of inventing statistics and cases to make Gates look good. His mission is to bring Gates down, and it doesn't take much. However, to get there takes five harrowing episodes, blood and gore, manipulation, police cover- ups, and a great deal of disbelief. As I said, this is really dark, you will need to take some breaks. Prepare.

Lennie James as Tony Gates is superb, we watch him manipulate us right before our eyes. Gina McGee, as Jackie, Gates lover, is the perfect mistress , Vicky McLure, plays Kate, the officer undercover who plays up to Gates, is in a position to find the truth, and she never wavers, ever! DS Arnott, has the series play around his investigation, however, his wishy-washy character takes away from his performance.
