A MIXED ENDING: Were you satisfied with the Line of Duty Finale?


Line of Duty came to an end on Sunday with the identity of ‘H’ finally unveiled. But were you satisfied with the series’ ending?

The final episode of BBC One's Line of Duty was watched by an average of 12.8 million viewers on Sunday night, a record for the hit show.

The BBC said it was the most watched episode of any drama since modern records began in 2002, although that does not include soaps.

Viewers tuned in to find out the identity of criminal mastermind, H.

The finale commanded 56.2% of the UK's TV audience, according to overnight figures.

The five-minute peak audience was 13.1 million, between 21:45 and 21:50, which was the end of the interrogation of the "fourth man/woman", and its aftermath.

The show - which first aired in 2012 - was created by British writer Jed Mercurio, and stars Martin Compston as DI Steve Arnott, Vicky McClure as DI Kate Fleming. and Adrian Dunbar as Superintendent Ted Hastings and Kelly Macdonald as DS Joanne Davidson.

Charlotte Moore, BBC's chief content officer said: "Addictive event television, Line of Duty has kept the nation guessing for the last seven weeks, so it's no surprise that last night's jaw dropping finale set a ratings record.

"Jed Mercurio is a master of his craft, and I would like to congratulate him and the entire cast and crew for delivering such an incredible drama series. I'm looking forward to having a conversation with the team about where we go next and what the future of the series might be."

But despite high interest in the finale, reviews for the series finale were decidedly mixed.

Fans took to social media in their droves to discuss the ending of the series, where *spoilers* Ian Buckells was revealed to be ‘H’. You can read more about fan reaction to the episode here.
