Filming won’t get underway until next year, but series 6 has its antagonist…
Arguably the UK’s most loved police drama, Line Of Duty will begin production on series 6 in the new year, and we now have official confirmation of the corrupt copper that AC-12’s officers will be investigating when it returns to our screens – Trainspotting star Kelly Macdonald!
In series 6, Macdonald will play Detective Chief Inspector Joanne Davidson, “who draws the attention of anti-corruption unit AC-12 for her unconventional conduct during the investigation of an unsolved murder”.
Martin Compston, Vicky McClure and Adrian Dunbar will of course be back as the ever-reliable AC-12 unit in the Jed Mercurio crime series, and Mercurio says that Macdonald’s character will prove to be “the most enigmatic adversary AC-12 have ever faced.”
