Line of Duty series 4

landscape-1489514970-13080511-low-res-line-of-duty-series-4
Another excellent series (broadcast on BBC tv).
The theme of this series was (institutional) sexism, kinda reinforced by public criticism of Thandie Newton’s performance as a bit reserved when that was the nature of the character she was playing.
Other characteristics of the series remains –
– masking what’s really going on until the finale; so even though it’s always about the fight against highly organised crime, viewers seem to forget;
– AC12, the anti-corruption unit, around which the series is based, again continue to not be good enough in their duties;
– compelling witness interview scenes;
– hands always get hurt.
As in other drama series there are bits that seem implausible (e.g. main characters back at work very quickly after suffering very serious injuries) and plenty has been left unresolved for another series.
