Line of Duty is a show that’s taken the UK by storm since the very first episode aired back in 2012. As the long-awaited sixth series is finally upon us, fans of the show are already dreading the inevitable end. The series six trailer was released just over a month ago, and it had our heads spinning. Thankfully, we didn’t have to wait too long for the show to land on our screens and just three episodes in, we’ve already been introduced to a whole host of new acronyms, potential suspects, and Superintendent Ted Hasting’s signature phrases like “bent coppers” and “letter of the law” on a loop.
This series has also seen some refreshing new additions to the cast like Kelly Macdonald, Andi Osho and Prasanna Puwanarajah, alongside returning AC-12 members like Vicky McClure, Adrian Dunbar, and of course, Martin Compston. Now that we’re halfway through the series, it’s sadly time to think about how we’re possibly going to survive when it ends. The answer is of course, to find an entirely new police drama to sink our teeth into. We’ve rounded up the best ones for your viewing pleasure, so hopefully you won’t be at a loss when Line of Duty comes to an end. Keep reading to find out which dramas need to be added to your list.
