Storyline

Prasad claims that Dryden wanted Tommy silenced as he was blackmailing him about Carly, hence the ambush. However the order was to spare Lindsay. Hastings charges Dryden for the driving scam but has insufficient evidence for the weightier charges as Dryden apparently proves that the last he saw of Carly was when he put on her on a train. Kate is surprised that Steve seems to believe in Lindsay's innocence until he admits that he is purposely trying to gain her confidence to trap her. When she is shown to have accepted a proposal by a colleague to snare a child abuser she seems less innocent than she claims but is she really guilty of conspiracy to murder?

Season Two
20 March 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

These comments refer to the whole of season two not just the final episode.

After a successful first season it is of little surprise that this series about the police investigating the police should return for a second season. The story this time follows the investigation into the murder of three police officers and a protected witness. As few people knew that the witness was being moved it is obvious that somebody within the police must have tipped of the killers; not surprisingly suspicion quickly falls on DI Lindsay Denton, the sole survivor of the attack. It isn't long before she is charged but as the investigation proceeds more and more suspects emerge until the point where it seems anybody could be involved.

I really enjoyed the first season on 'Line of Duty' but I must say I found this one to be even better. Right up until the closing scenes I was unsure who was involved in what. The web of intrigue was convoluted without seeming unbelievable. There was plenty of tension and the killing of an apparently major character early on gave the impression that nobody was safe. The acting was top notch; especially from Keeley Hawes who excelled as DI Denton; she made the character sympathetic while also being believable as a suspect. People who want every loose end tied up may be a little disappointed but I think a very neat ending wouldn't have fitted in with the feel of the series… and some of those loose ends could make the promised third season just as good as this one was.
