It’s always exciting when a new series starts to take shape, especially when it’s something as good as Line Of Duty. Jed Mercurio’s teeth-grindingly tense mega-hit saw both Lennie James and subsequently Keeley Hawes take on the ambiguous roles of characters who were investigated by the AC-12 department. We already know that Daniel Mays plays the third character to come under scrutiny in this new series, and now we know more about his (potentially) corrupt team.
So, say hello to… Will Mellor, who plays PC Rod Kennedy, Arsher Ali (Malik Suri from The Missing), who plays PC Harinderpal ‘Hari’ Bains, and Leanne Best (Ripper Street, Fortitude), who plays WPC Jackie Brickford.
Jed Mercurio, writer and creator of Line Of Duty, says: “Sergeant Danny Waldron appears to run a team of crack firearms officers, but hidden tensions simmer beneath the surface. We’re all hugely excited that Will Mellor, Arsher Ali and Leanne Best have agreed to play these pivotal roles.”
It’s filming at the moment so it’s hopeful for an autumn broadcast.
