Critic Reviews for Line of Duty Season 2

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (1)

Line of Duty stands out as original and surprising. Season 2 is, if anything, even more brutal and thrilling.

Oct 17, 2018 | Full Review…

Throw in the return of the brilliant Craig Parkinson as lovable rogue Dot Cottan and you've got a series that's almost perfection.

Oct 17, 2018 | Full Review…

Outwitting them [AC-12] at almost every turn and earning Keeley Hawes rave reviews for her performance.

Oct 17, 2018 | Full Review…

A lot of this is down to the simple premise of doing the same, but better.

Jun 11, 2018 | Full Review…

There were plenty of twists and turns and some terrific performances, with a particularly fine one from Adrian Dunbar as a decidedly slippery superintendent.

    The interviews! The tension!
  • Aug 03, 2020
    Riveting from start to finish. Fast-paced and intricate in detail. Lyndsey Denton is a compelling character. Great TV.
  • May 31, 2020
    Seasons 2 and 3 are some of the best TV I have seen. Just gripping.
  • Aug 18, 2019
    Glamorous except the ENDing!!
  • Jul 20, 2019
    Excellent character driven series.
  • Apr 08, 2019
    Tops the excellent first series, thanks in no small part to spectacular performances from Keeley Hawes and Adrian Dunbar. Great writing and thrilling to watch. The storyline twists and turns its way to a satisfying end.
  • Dec 27, 2018
    Just as good as the first series.
  • Oct 20, 2018
    The writer and creator of this TV Series is brilliant. One of the best dramas ever! Its real edge of your seat stuff and you cant help but binge.
  • Jul 15, 2018
    Its good but boy its pretty sloppy. From basic contiuity issues (Denton approached her NEIGHBOUR in an alley - then by the end of the season we see the outside of her house and there are no alleys between units...) to the idea that Steve is apparently willing to shag every female he encounters? (aside - why is every woman in a major role in this show STEREOTYPICALLY hot? The men sure as heck aren''t.). HONESTLY I'm not even sure how Season 2 resolved DESPITE the fake supers at the end making it seem like a documentary - it just seems like Lazy writing.

    Loved the first season, couldn’t wait for the second season and it did not disappoint! Great show, great writing!
