Just when I was ready to give up on cop dramas, I came upon this fantastic program. Warning: The series should be seen in order. I started with series 3 and had to play a lot of catch-up trying to figure out what they were referring to from series 2..

Fantastic. Totally makes up for the ending in season 2.

Fantastic series. An anti-corruption squad investigating bent cops is not your usual police drama. There is an extra layer of tension between the investigators and the "bad" guys. Great acting and characters.

"line of duty" must have a big, big budget with a complicated production. I am starting out with Series 3. To me, there is no liking for any of this. Come on viewers. You know this is just about crime and criminals. No one looks good here. If you are one of the good guys then I pity you having to deal with doubt and distrust of your fellow officers. If you are one of the bad guys then you are a scourge on all policemen everywhere. One point I want to make is that basic CSI techniques such as testing for gun powder residue would potentially have immediately cleared the unjustly charged policeman and maybe convicted the right guy. Also, we live in a world where people seem to love believing conspiracy and corruption exists in those we are supposed to most trust. Shame on the human character for embracing denigration of the human spirit.

Writer/creator Jed Mercurio is considered one of the best writers working in British television. This show, about an Internal Affairs department investigating corruption, or at least errors that some have tried to cover up, has not only won lots of the top awards, but is also on multiple Best British TV shows of All Time lists.

I think the third series was the best yet. If you can't watch them in order, I'd advise you to at least try to see Series Two before watching Series Three. There is some crossover and you might be a tad confused if you don't catch the background that was laid before the present episodes. It will also be a more satisfying denouement as well. Just sayin'.

FYI - If you're already a fan: Series 4 is out now and the BBC has commissioned Series 5 and 6.

Best season yet, and though you need some patience, it will be well worth it! Gives insight into how the police investigates itself, with all the inherent politics, etc. Great drama, acting and writing all the way up to the nail-biting conclusion!

The third installment has sets of tangled loyalties and re-appearances of previous interesting characters. Viewing of the past two series isn't necessary although it certainly helps to deepen the understanding of the tension which is effectively increased through this story arc. At the series end, not all is explained leaving the door open for another set of episodes. However, while most of the series is well above average, a "page turner" if that can be applied to DVDs, the ending climax wasn't as good in terms of believability which is why my rating didn't go to the full five stars. If you want superior British drama, watching cops investigate other cops doing things they shouldn't, this is a series for you.

Well written. The story moves quickly and the actors were magnificent. I definitely look forward to a season 4.

Highly entertaining even though the storyline is a bit over the top to have members of a child sex ring go to such length to cover up their crime.
