I've not seen it EFFT...is it any good?


I've watched a few things I hadn't seen before ..on iplayer this past year....'Merlin'....'Call the midwife' plus binge watched on Netflix or you tube ...'the living & the dead'...'humans'...'the fall'........wasn't disappointed with any of them

Yes, it is really great. In my opinion anyway and my sister. Well worth watching all series. Only 6 episodes per series (one series only has 5), but there is so much packed into each episode that it feels like more.

Yes - definitely looking forward to it tonight.

My only concern is that expectations might be too high: you know there's a potential problem when other Mercurio fans consider the James Nesbitt series "Bloodlands" to be merely a "warm-up act"...

Really excited about Kelly Macdonald as this series' guest star (though I haven't checked yet to see if the bookies are taking bets on how many episodes she'll last... ). Also; the trailers seem to be suggesting that the storyline may finally be investigating - if only as a red herring - one particular theory I've had since the very beginning...

I am hoping it’s as good as the previous series Eugene ....but I agree , expectations are very high .

Love how the announcer had to explain what "CHIS" means at the end of the episode!

Apparently there's been a lot of google searches on it, and a similar-sounding (but much ruder) word which I'm probably not allowed to write here has been trending on Twitter for the last hour!

Ive recorded it ....was it good Eugene ?

Yes, I thought so.

I really don't want to get into "spoiler" territory, but it's a little bit more of a slow-burner than straight into shocks and cliff-hangers like some of the previous series. Recording is definitely a good idea, as there were a lot of "Ooh: where's this going?" moments, and you may have to refresh your memory regarding minor characters from previous episodes...

Prior to Series 5, I blitzed my way through Seasons 1 to 4. This time I just watched the season 5 finale in preparation for the start of series 6.

Absolutely loved it. Had heard that some were saying it wasn't quite as good as the previous series, but I thought it was every bit as good!

I’m enjoying Line of Duty ....if I can keep up with the plot... But that DI is a nasty bit of work . And is the replacement policeman in uniform the baddy from a previous series?

Which DI are you meaning, Baz? Kelly Macdonald's character?



The replacement plod is Ryan Pilkington, who we've seen grow up since his first appearance in Series 1. He once tried to remove Steve Arnott's fingers with bolt cutters, which is why he was desperate to avoid being seen by Steve in S6E2...
