It’s pretty much as you were this week. I’ve decided I’m not going to be posting up any synopsis for Line Of Duty, if only because each episode is so twisty and turny. I don’t want to give anything away! Elsewhere, Broadchurch, and Midnight Sun continue, while Fortitude and Follow The Money come to a close. Look out for Norwegian series Eyewitness on Channel 4. Enjoy!

1 Line Of Duty *NEW UK PREMIERE EPISODE*

2 Broadchurch *NEW UK PREMIERE EPISODE*
