Is she a villain or is she is victim? That's the central mystery that fuels the second season of the high octane British crime procedural "Line of Duty." Having been absolutely blown away by the twisty and surprising first season, where each of the five episodes ended with a significant cliff hanger, I was curious to see if the BBC drama could maintain this momentum for its six episode second season continuation. With the magnificent and manic Lennie James no longer the central character, the show wisely adds veteran actress Keeley Hawes as its enigmatic new lead. Hawes, who I've watched in everything from "MI-5" to "Ashes to Ashes" to the new iteration of "Upstairs, Downstairs" (and many other great shows) will definitely keep you guessing! And that's exactly the point. As our heroes in the police anti-corruption squad square off against the no-nonsense Hawes, you're never entirely sure who'll emerge victorious or just where the truth lies in a complex investigation.

The new season starts with great intensity. Hawes, as Detective Inspector Lindsay Denton, receives an impassioned call from an officer assigned to a protected witness. With minimal notice, she must rely on her wits to make a critical judgement when asked to help move said witness to a safe location based on an impending threat. When events go awry, Hawes is left in a vulnerable position and her choices begin to be questioned by anti-corruption. Season One returnees Martin Compston, Vicky McClure, and Adrian Dunbar are all back to head up the investigation that grows increasingly bizarre. One thing is certain, though, the brutal initiating incident (no spoilers here) is far more complex than anyone can imagine. And Hawes is in the thick of it all.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW!! March 23, 2014
Format:DVD
If you thought the first season was power packed, wait until you see this one. No spoilers, but the first episode knocked me out of my chair. The plot is so skillfully wrought that just as I was thinking there was a ;letdown in episodes 2/3, I realized that I was as taken in as the investigators. Great twists, much tension, high mystery...and the most morally ambiguous ending I've ever seen. You'll love it.
Sorry Amazon...it's free on a competitor right now (3/23).

If you liked Line of Duty 1 then this is for you. Darker and with more twists and the same moral ambiguity as it's predecessor. A winner .

LINE OF DUTY, Series 2, 2014.The acclaimed British television series returns for a second series, with a new police corruption story told over six episodes. In this BBC-produced crime drama, a police convoy is ambushed and a protected witness seriously injured; DI Lindsay Denton (Keeley Hawes, MI-5) is the sole surviving officer. She is at first the most valuable witness, but soon becomes the prime suspect of the Anti-Corruption Unit (AC12) we met in the first British mysteries series. This box set consists of 6 episodes on 2 DVDs, running approximately 369 minutes plus bonus programing. Including behind-the-scenes footage, deleted and extended scenes and interviews with the cast and crew. For mature audiences only please. With subtitles, which are very helpful, thank you RLJ Entertainment/Acorn: the cast speaks clear Queen’s English, but with great speed, in tune with the show. I received this as a review copy.

It is AC12’s job to catch criminals, similarly to other police: but the unit catches them in the cop shop. The ambush of the police convoy has left three cops dead, in addition to the protected witness seriously injured. Inevitably, in this police procedural, the unit will begin to look on DI Denton with suspicion. The unit, which we met before, includes Superintendent Ted Hastings, (the veteran Adrian Dunbar, THE CRYING GAME, ASHES TO ASHES); partners Detective Sergeant Steve Arnott, (Martin Compston, MONARCH OF THE GLEN, THE GREAT TRAIN ROBBERY), and Detective Constable Kate Fleming (Vicky McClure, BROADCHURCH, THIS IS ENGLAND). Keeley Hawes, (MI-5, UPSTAIRS DOWNSTAIRS, ASHES TO ASHES) as DI Lindsay Denton, the prime target of their investigation, is a revelation.

5.0 out of 5 stars A New Story But The Same Ethos July 18, 2014
Format:DVD
Season 2 of Line of Duty offers a fresh new story but the same ethos—a culture of corruption investigated by the Anti-Corruption unit, which is itself beset by human weakness and ongoing temptations. Conflict is everywhere, conflict marked by moral ambiguity, conflict that torments the characters who would be heroic and seems to barely touch those who are villains to the core.

The story: DI Lindsay Denton, a desk jockey, finds herself as duty officer in a crisis. A person in the witness protection program is mortally threatened and his handler, a police officer, calls out to DI Denton for help. She wants to transport the witness to a safe haven. As the process unfolds the mini-convoy is ambushed. Police officers die and the witness barely escapes with his life (at least for the moment).

DI Denton (Keeley Hawes in an absolutely virtuoso performance) is immediately suspected of complicity in the ambush, though she professes her innocence. As the investigation proceeds she appears, by turns, to be either a brave copper or a conniving monster, perhaps a little of both.

Without revealing too much of the plot, the viewer must know that incidents and characters in season 2 link directly to incidents and characters in season 1. As season 1 ended with an utterly bleak world largely bereft of hope, season 2 suggests (in its plot arcs) that justice might be restored or at least trotted out for a brief moment or two. Thus, season 2 intensifies the ethos depicted in season 1.

At one point DI Denton proclaims the nature of that ethos. Everyone in the force above the rank of DCI, she tells us, is a politician rather than a policeman.

5.0 out of 5 stars ANOTHER WINNER
Just as the first series, this is superb! Thankfully not too broody and atmospheric, it's complex enough to keep one's interest throughout. Hope there will be more.
