Line Of Duty

The Observer - - TV GUIDE LIFE -

ABC, 9.20pm We’re half­way through this third sea­son, and it’s any­one’s guess as to how this in­trigu­ing and ex­haust­ing case ends up. There’s a lot to wrap our heads around, with clever char­ac­ters and mo­ti­va­tions left, right and cen­tre. In “The De­fence Calls…”, DS Steve Arnott (Martin Comp­ston) con­tin­ues his in­ves­ti­ga­tion and finds ev­i­dence that Danny Wal­dron (Daniel

Mays, right) was the vic­tim of sex­ual abuse while in a care home. Creator Jed Mer­cu­rio has us wrapped around his fin­ger but it’s also the cal­i­bre of act­ing that makes Line of Duty a head above the rest. With themes of abuse, this is a hard­hit­ting episode.
