The BBC have released a sneak peak trailer of the highly anticipated second series of police corruption drama Line of Duty.
Line Of Duty, which was BBC Two’s biggest new drama series for 10 years (averaging 4.2 million viewers), returns for a second run in 2014. Written by Jed Mercurio and produced by World Productions, series two features a new police corruption story told over six one-hour episodes.
The series opens explosively with the ambush of a police convoy in which three police officers are killed and a protected witness seriously injured. The sole surviving police officer is Detective Inspector Lindsay Denton (Keeley Hawes). Deputy Chief Constable Mike Dryden (Mark Bonnar) takes personal charge, assigning AC-12 to the case. Detective Sergeant Steve Arnott (Martin Compston), Detective Constable Kate Fleming (Vicky McClure) and Superintendent Ted Hastings (Adrian Dunbar) are joined by newly appointed Detective Constable Georgia Trotman (Jessica Raine) to investigate a complex case rich in unexpected twists and turns. Initially AC-12’s most valuable witness, the suspicion soon arises that DI Denton could be their prime suspect.
