Jed Mercurios Line of Duty threw us headlong into a world of shady cops, batshit gangsters and conflicted Untouchables looking to root out the crooked Dibbles in their ranks Shocking and violent with an unerring eye for systemic failures it shone a light on the train wreck of modern day policing In series one we followed the travails of charismatic supercop DCI Tony Gates, his big sexy unit and the anti corruption cops out to take him down Then, series two saw the advent of icy modern day Job DI Lindsay Denton an enigma, wrapped in a mystery, offset by a lovely fringe Who exactly did turn a police convoy into a turkey shoot and when did protective custody stop being protective The demented revenge mission of effed up firearms officer Danny Waldron framed 2016 s series three a journey into Red Riding territory with its staged suicides, frantic cover ups and historic child abuse Death, children, was just a kiss away.TV critic James Donaghy runs the rule over the complete 11 episodes of the first two series with the wit of Ryan the BMX Bastard, the insight of DI Matthew Dot Cottan and the ferocious integrity of Superintendent Ted call me Ted Hastings.PLEASE do not read if you have any trace of human decency, sensitivity or good intention towards your fellow man This probably won t be your thing The rest of you scumbags have at it. If you have seen all the Line of Duty programs, this is a good update It briefly puts them all together Sadly the writer has a thing against small men and constantly mentions it throughout the bookit becomes very irritating. This book was very helpful as I missed a lot of the dialogue, dispite having volumne turned up.I have to sayyou did make me laugh.
