AC-12 right back in it in trailer for new series of Line Of Duty
DS STEVE ARNOTT is held at gunpoint in the new trailer for the fifth series of Line Of Duty.
The officer, played by Martin Compston, can be seen with a gun pointed at his head, held by an assailant wearing a black balaclava.
The footage opens with the hijacking of a police vehicle, which leaves three officers dead and members of anti-corruption squad AC-12 believing it needed a police insider to pull it off.
The series, written by Bodyguard creator Jed Mercurio, again stars Vicky McClure as DS Kate Fleming and Adrian Dunbar as Supt Ted Hastings, with Stephen Graham playing a new criminal adversary.
After the hijacking, Graham is seen taking off his balaclava and saying: ‘Job done, nice work lads.’
There is also a reference to ‘H’, the corrupt senior officer thought to be dead at the end of series four, still being at large.
No broadcast date for the BBC One show has yet been given.
