Spiral, The Shield: 5 crime shows to fill the Line of Duty void

26 March 2014 2:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

It's Wednesday - the weekend has never felt further away and one of the few things that made Hump Day bearable these past six weeks - BBC Two's superb police thriller Line of Duty - is no longer with us.

A third series is a near-certainty, but what is a discerning television watcher to do until anti-corruption unit AC-12 returns to our screens?

Here's five crime thrillers that could become your next TV obsession - both homegrown shows and a few from further afield.

The Shield

Compelling tales of police corruption, a lead copper who commits terrible acts for (mostly) the right reasons and a roster of determined detectives determinedly on their tail.
