First series of Line of Duty released next month

BBC-Two-mediumLine of Duty is the fast-paced hard-hitting thriller that delves into the murky world of police corruption, and now the first series makes its DVD debut from Acorn Media.

When a counter-terrorism raid goes tragically wrong Detective Sergeant Steve Arnott (Martin Compston) refuses to participate in a cover-up. Ostracised by colleagues, he transfers to an anti-corruption unit AC-12, which is in the process of investigating one of the Force’s most respected officers, Detective Chief Inspector Tony Gates (Lennie James).

Gates has just been awarded Officer of the Year and his squad has returned the best crime figures for three consecutive years. But can anyone really be that good? Arnott doesn’t think so and soon he and Gates are embroiled in a game of cat-and-mouse.

Every time Gates seems cornered he finds a way to turn the tables.

Following the success of series one which attracted around 4.2 million viewers and was BBC Two’s best performing drama series in 10 years, this hugely popular police drama, which also stars Vicky McClure and Craig Parkinson, will be returning to our screens for a second series.

Line Of Duty Series One comes to DVD 3 February 2014.
