Line Of Duty Sea­son 4 Thurs­days ITV Choice (*123) 20:00

Cop drama se­ries Line Of Duty (2012cur­rent) is clos­ing off its sea­son 4 with a bang. New­comer boss Roz (Thandie New­ton) is fac­ing the mu­sic for her role in cover-ups within the AC-12 depart­ment and Vicky McClure hints that her char­ac­ter De­tec­tive Su­per­in­ten­dent Kate Fleming’s de­ter­mi­na­tion to stop cor­rup­tion within the po­lice force is go­ing to push her higher up the peck­ing or­der.

Kate has had a busy sea­son… Very much so. She was pro­moted to the same rank as Steve Arnott (Martin Comp­ston) and she’s been rar­ing to go from day 1. She had a lot to prove in her new po­si­tion and while her per­sonal life is still up and down, it’s at least set­tled down. You do other shows in-be­tween the sea­son, so it easy to get back into cop mode? She’s quite an easy char­ac­ter to get into as she’s so se­cure and set­tled in her job ar­rest­ing crim­i­nals and us­ing guns and be­ing shot at [Laughs]. I love play­ing Kate be­cause she’s bright and we’d be mates, but she scares me [Laughs]. She’s had a lot of in­ter­ac­tion with DCI Roz Hunt­ley too. From the get-go there was this false trust be­cause Roz seemed like she gen­uinely cared about the job. We were all lulled into a false sense of se­cu­rity with her. What did Thandie bring to the team? Wow, where to be­ing? She’s amaz­ing and we had good laughs. She came in and was re­ally just open to want­ing to cre­ate a great char­ac­ter and we were as wel­com­ing as we could make it for her. And have you ever thought about get­ting into foren­sics, like in the show? It’s in­ter­est­ing and makes for re­ally in­trigu­ing drama, but it’s also a real chal­lenge be­cause of the tech­ni­cal di­a­logue.
