Line of Duty – Series 1
Hard-hitting, fast-paced new thriller delving into the murky world of police corruption.
When a counterterrorism raid goes tragically wrong, Detective Sergeant Steve Arnott refuses to participate in a cover-up. Ostracised by colleagues, he transfers to an anticorruption unit, AC-12, in the process of investigating one of the Force’s most respected offi cers, Detective Chief Inspector Tony Gates. Not only has Gates just been awarded Offi cer of the Year, his squad has returned the best crime fi gures for three consecutive years. But can anyone really be that good? Arnott doesn’t think so and soon he and Gates become embroiled in a thrilling game of cat-and-mouse. Every time Gates seems cornered, he fi nds a way to turn the tables still believing he can save himself, if only he can prove his innocence. But all the time he’s digging a bigger hole and plunging irrevocably into a moral abyss. And the stakes keep getting higher. Soon it isn’t just careers on the line – it’s lives.

The only big criticism I have is the over-abundance of references to police procedure, mostly paperwork and unnecessary red tape. It's too obvious, not quite as prescriptive as Natural Born Killers which has to be the benchmark in anti-subtle ideology, but it's just a bit repetitive and isn't needed. It could have worked if it was actually the focus of the drama, but it isn't. Luckily though, the show isn't cluttered like Blackout or unfocused like Good Cop, so I'll take a slightly out-of-place thread in exchange for an otherwise tight narrative.
Highest recommendation possible for this.
This two disc set features all five episodes of the drama along with a half-hour Behind the Scenes extra featuring the whole cast.
If you enjoy a good quality thriller set in the modern world, Line of Duty will not let you down.
Don't wait for it to be released on amazon in 2014, go straight to [...] where it is available now with free postage.
Nothing is black and white, as they often are in corruption/conspiracy dramas and I love how he's made the protagonist in this, too good to be true copper Tony Gates, ambiguous - is he a bent cop or not, he's certainly willing to bend the law for friends, but is it circumstance that forces him down the road we see?
If you like intelligent drama, this delivers and BBC2 deserve all the accolades the series received for commissioning it.
Well acted, believable, plenty of action and drama. One of the better 'sharp end' police drama on television.
I look forward to the next series coming out. I shall just buy the discs as it is so much better to watch the whole series in a single hit.
