Line Of Duty
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.
