Saturday's best TV: The Hollow Crown; Attenborough's Passion Project; Miranda

Shakespeare’s history plays get a star-studded adaptation, the naturalist’s most personal films get another airing and there’s a weekend binge of the slapstick-filled sitcom

9pm, BBC2

A second series of adaptations of Shakespeare’s history plays begins with the story of an ineffectual young king (Tom Sturridge) and a nation about to descend into civil war. The famous faces (Hugh Bonneville, Adrian Dunbar, Sally Hawkins and more) can be distracting and this isn’t one of the Bard’s best works, but there’s power enough to carry you along – and Sophie Okonedo is terrific as Margaret of Anjou.

Line Of Duty series 4: Thandie Newton & more join cast

Thandie Newton will play Dci Roz Huntley, AC-12's "most devious opponent yet" in Line Of Duty series 4...

Line Of Duty series 4: Thandie Newton signs up

The BBC has announced that English actress Thandie Newton (Crash, The Slap, Westworld) will be joining central cast Vicky McClure, Martin Compston and Adrian Dunbar in Line Of Duty series 4.

Newton will play Dci Roz Huntley, who begins series 4 "in the thick of a career-defining case, Operation Trapdoor", according to the official BBC blurb.

Huntley's handling of the case attracts the attention of our old anti-corruption pals at AC-12, and she apparently proves "their most devious opponent yet". With Lindsay Denton and The Caddy numbering on that list, that's really saying something.

Line Of Duty series 4: cast 

Martin Compston, Vicky McClure and Adrian Dunbar will all be back for series 4, along with Maya Sondhi as PC Maneet Bindra.

Line Of Duty series 3 episode 6 review

Line Of Duty cements its status as the most thrilling drama on television with a stunning finale to a stunning series…

This review contains spoilers.

Like many a modern idiot, around my wrist is a special watch that monitors my heart-rate. It syncs with my phone and shows me a graph of what my pulse is doing at any given moment. If I were ever to kill someone, I suspect it could be used to incriminate me. Murder must play havoc on the cardiovascular system.

Fifteen minutes before the end of Line Of Duty’s series three finale, you’ll see a significant spike on the graph. My body was sitting lazily on the sofa; my heart was doing laps of the park. This might be the first occasion on which I hand over my TV reviewing responsibilities to a Fitbit.

Line Of Duty series 3 episode 5 review

Line Of Duty series 3’s penultimate episode is a gripping hour of drama that doesn’t fail to shock. Major spoilers...

This review contains spoilers.

Jed Mercurio says he doesn’t write tragedy, but what else could you call tonight’s episode? It unfolded like a Greek play, from the opening commendation ceremony—a scene scarcely more ironic had Mark Antony popped in to present Cottan with the award for most ‘honourable man’—to the death of Lindsay Denton, a conflicted hero whose fatal flaw finally proved such.

Denton’s tragic error was taking a shortcut to what she perceived as justice. You could say her fate was sealed the moment she broke faith with the law to see Tommy Hunter punished. Everything that happened to her since the ambush resulted from that mistake and her subsequent denial. She was Oedipus. With a fringe.

Like all tragic heroes, »

Line Of Duty series 3 episode 2 review

If paranoia were a drug, Line Of Duty would be a top-rung dealer. Series 3’s twists and revelations keep coming…

This review contains spoilers.

“Sincerity is everything. Fake that and you’ve got it made.” That old showbiz joke applies to other arenas than just Hollywood, as this week’s Line Of Duty proved.

By closing on Lindsay Denton practising a courtroom monologue, drilling each line, gesture and glance like a leading lady in her dressing room rather than a prison cell, the episode cemented the thematic importance of performance in this show. These characters may be police officers, but they’re also players in an improvised drama that relies on them never letting their masks slip.

What went on in that bedroom? Either Danny shot himself or was killed, both versions of the truth that were rehearsed by his rapidly shrinking squad this week on stage »

Line of Duty box set review: Jed Mercurio’s explosive cop drama still thrills

3 March 2016 8:12 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

This BBC series about an anti-corruption squad is addictively plotted – if you missed it on TV, time to catch up with Gates, Denton and co

At the core of this addictive police series is a theme that marks it out from most other detective dramas: who polices the police? The answer is AC12, an anti-corruption unit, and Jed Mercurio’s BBC2 series follows their nail-bitingly tense and ultimately explosive adventures as they are called in to investigate cases across the UK.

They are a tight crew: Adrian Dunbar’s gruff leader, Superintendent Ted Hastings; Vicky McClure’s no-nonsense DC Kate Fleming (generally used as an undercover cop, winkling information out of whichever department is under investigation); and Martin Compston’s cocky DS Steve Arnott, the eager new recruit who is never quite sure when to stop pushing.
