Audience Reviews for Line of Duty: Season 1

  • May 14, 2021
    MUCH better the second time around. Really enjoyed the story and most of the characters. Great writing
  • Dec 28, 2020
    Fantastic acting and writing. Great plot twists.
  • Sep 09, 2020
    Tight script, great acting; very authentic. Fast & intriguing plot with unexpected twists and turns. The best series I've had the pleasure of watching.
  • Aug 20, 2020
    File this one under 'Glad it's all over, what a complete waste of time.' Five long, dreary, characterless episodes just to get a 'No result' at the end on all the key issues? Who thought that was a good idea? If you're going to make your audience suffer under a ham-fisted, unbelievable plot, with central actors who look like they're sleep-walking, with poor direction and blurry, out-of-focus camera work that can best be described as life in an unexpected earthquake zone, at least give viewers the pay-off of feeling SOMETHING has been decided. Suffice it to say, there will be no further series for us.

    Action-packed, fast-paced, and with satisfying twists and turns. Well worth a watch.
  • Jul 24, 2020
    Excellent. I'm also enjoying season 2. No sex scenes, good drama, fast moving plot. An interesting look at British police through the eyes of internal affairs.
  • Jul 19, 2020

    Never a dull moment. Great acting. 5 ***** Do you like to think and be entertained?
  • May 25, 2020
    So intense, you are at the edge of your seat the entire show. Keeps you guessing till the end!
  • Jul 21, 2019
    Started strong but fell to the typical trope of police dramas of 'lets increase the tension by having a sensible officer suddenly go off and be a solo hero, ignoring all advice and good judegement, oh no now they need rescuing'. Try something new, once?
