Line of Duty returns for a second series, featuring a new police corruption story told over six one-hour episodes. The series opens explosively with the brutal ambush of a police convoy in which three officers are killed and a protected witness seriously injured. When evidence suggests that a police source may have leaked the whereabouts of the convoy to criminal parties, Deputy Chief Constable Mike Dryden (Mark Bonnar: Doctor Who) takes personal charge, assigning anti-corruption unit AC-12 to the case.
Detective Sergeant Steve Arnott (Martin Compston: The Great Train Robbery), Detective Constable Kate Fleming (Vicky McClure: Broadchurch) and Superintendent Ted Hastings (Adrian Dunbar: Ashes to Ashes) are joined by newly-appointed Detective Constable Georgia Trotman (Jessica Raine: Call the Midwife).
Initially AC-12’s most valuable witness, the suspicion soon arises that the sole surviving police officer, Detective Inspector Lindsay Denton (Keeley Hawes: Ashes to Ashes) could be their prime suspect. Did she lead the convoy straight into the fatal ambush?
‘Line Of Duty: Season 2’ is available now on DVD.
