It’s as you were this week, with new episodes of Broadchurch, Midnight Sun, Fortitude and Vera and the like, except for one major addition – the start of series four of Line Of Duty. This time around Thandie Newton steps into the shoes of the person who’s being investigated by AC-12, but as ever you’re never quite sure of her guilt or innocence and we all know that this will take on quite the rollercoaster ride over its six episodes. Enjoy!
