Not a bad series this with strong acting, good casting and quite a realistic storyline. Lennie James plays DCI Tony Gates, an officer who many want to bring to his knees not because of his race but because nobody can believe he can be as successful as he is without cheating. When a young Sergeant, played by Steve Arnott, refuses to take part in the cover-up by officers responsible for killing an innocent man in a raid-gone-wrong. he is ostracised by his workmates, some senior officers and his 'friends' both in and out of the Police Service so he gets a transfer to the Anti-Corruption Dept. and joins others in investigating Gates. As a result, other 'matters' come to light which cannot be swept under the carpet and as things hot-up, Gates begins to feel the heat, to find out WHO, if anyone is still his friend and finds he has very few places to go and even fewer people he can trust. Also starring Adrian Dunbar, Vicky McClure and Neil Morrisey who is a real star in this cast against type 'serious' role.

Really enjoyed. Kept me at the edge of my seat the whole time, also my heart skipped a beat few times because it was so intense. Very well made series 1: the cast was brilliant - all emotions seemed natural, script is very good - difficult to find any faults or inconsistencies; the choice of camera angles and picture manipulation suited right to every moment filmed.
Overall, I would recommend to watch it to anyone who likes thriller dramas. Do not watch the trailer - it doesn't do the justice to series.

wow! brilliant, we have seen all the other series of line of duty but not the first, it didn't disappoint, edge of your seat stuff from beginning to explosive end if you like a good thriller then this is for you but be warned if you watch this you will be hooked and you will have to see all of the later episodes,can't wait for series 5.

Great script, clever plot twists. Jed Mercurial should be congratulated on such brilliant writing. The acting is excellent. I usually get bored to death of predictable cop shows but not this time! (I have watched all four series and each is better than the last!)

Very good delivery service but no mention that it was Dutch Import with Dutch subtitles which is a bit off putting when you are watching a crime drama.

Probably the most outstanding crime series available on any channel in the country. Fantastic,the writer's knowledge of police procedures together with enviable imagination is astonishing.

Outstanding series, totally addictive. Classy production. Best to start from the first series as the plot and characters develop through the series.

This series is so gripping I cannot stop watching it to the end
but I think that series 3 for a prime member a12.99 in a bit much so I bought the full series in a box set for 13.99
and will sell it after I have watched series 4 brilliant brilliant series

This is one of my favourite TV programmes. It is brilliantly written and well acted. The only regret is paying for this episode when there's a few seasons on Netflix which I subscribe to.

You cannot miss this. I didn't see it first time round, and had to download it so to get the background on season 3. Not to be missed. If you have seen season 3, I would recommend starting at the beginning and watching them all through again - even better the second time round.
