Line of Duty 5 on its way

Nottingham Post - - EG DAILY - By EMILY HUTCHINSON

VICKY Mc­clure is get­ting ready to reprise her role as De­tec­tive Sergeant Kate Flem­ing in the BBC One drama Line of Duty.

Se­ries cre­ator Jed Mer­cu­rio shared a photo of Vicky and her co-stars Martin Comp­ston (De­tec­tive Sergeant Steve Arnott) and Adrian Dun­bar (Su­per­in­ten­dent Ted Hast­ings) on the set this week, re­veal­ing that there’s now just one month to go un­til they re­unite to start film­ing se­ries five.

“One month to go till we start shoot­ing #Li­ne­of­duty Se­ries 5 with @mar­t­in_­comp­ston @Vicky_ Mc­clure and Adrian Dun­bar,” he cap­tioned the photo. “Count­ing down till the gang gets back to­gether.”

The photo was a big hit with fans, re­ceived more than 5,000 likes and hun­dreds of retweets as fans ex­pressed their ex­cite­ment for new episodes of the cop drama.

Vicky, who hails from Wol­la­ton and still con­sid­ers Not­ting­ham her home, then retweeted the snap and shared a mes­sage of her own ahead of start­ing work on the new se­ries. “ONE MONTH!!! Time to start learn­ing some lines!” the ac­tress said on Twit­ter, re­veal­ing that she be­lieved Jed, who cre­ated and writes the drama, “has upped the game once again” with the new episodes.

It was con­firmed ear­lier this year that film­ing for the new se­ries would be­gin in au­tumn , with new episodes ex­pected to de­but on BBC One in 2019.

Jed has been speak­ing out about what fans can ex­pect from se­ries five over the past few months, teas­ing that things may be a lit­tle dif­fer­ent mov­ing for­ward . “Steve (Martin Comp­ston) and Kate (Vicky Mc­clure) are now char­ac­ters in their 30s, rather than in their 20s, and Hast­ings (Adrian Dun­bar) has been head­ing AC-12 for a good num­ber of years now,” he told Dig­i­tal Spy.

“So, all of these things have to be looked at in terms of the evo­lu­tion of the char­ac­ters, and we have to keep mov­ing for­ward. There does come a point where we have to de­velop things in a new di­rec­tion if they’re to re­main ex­cit­ing and fresh dra­mat­i­cally.”
