    Even brought back in PCC Rohan Sindwhani who suggested he was bring stitched up, maybe he took his name out of it because it was him.

    Or his boss, the old female person.

    Literally anything else haha

    Buckles has been in it since the start but to me it doesn't seem likely. Even the scene with him in the interview was poor, surely they could have given us more than mainly no comment.
    Perhaps I should have said give us a better ending.


    I don't see why any of your examples are any better to be honest. For example having Thelwell as H would have been a bit of a cheat, he was only mentioned as a serious option a couple of episodes ago.

    And PCC's have no operational power. What use would he have been as H to an Organised Crime Gang???? That would have been a silly ending!

    Mercurio has said that he felt it was important to have a character who had been in it since series 1.

    Which didn't leave much choice. Most of the rest from series one have been killed off or have been peripheral to the series

    He also mentioned ending the story arc. He has. We now know who all the H's were. We also know that it doesn't end with H, there is obviously someone ( or more likely several people) higher up the food chain



    I think I must be the only one on here who actually quite enjoyed the episode ( yes there are clunky bits such as the final rather hackneyed lift scene). And I found the ending perfectly satisfactory. ​Depending on your view it has either reached a conclusion (albeit unsatisfactory to some people) or has left the door open to another story arc and possibly a bit of a reboot with some new characters perhaps. Or Carmichael realises (as there seemed to be suggestion of towards the end of the episode)that Ted's opinion on institutional corruption is closer to the mark than she thought. Who knows what is in Mercurio's mind.


    With over 12 million viewers for the last episode I can't see the BBC wanting to let this series go. Mercurio might be a different matter

It was much more understated, less self-conscious, more realistic and plausible, better acted - and yet here's the thing - it was more dramatic, exciting and surprising than all those gun fights in the streets, murders, killings, kidnappings, that were happening what seemed like every day in LOD.

By the end, I thought Hastings was veering into self parody and, as has been mentioned before, the “alright mate” conversations between the other two main characters were becoming jarring as far as I was concerned. A few weeks ago on here I said I slightly preferred Unforgiven to Line Of Duty, but the last series of that knocked the seventh aeries of Line of Duty clean out of the park.
    Knocked it out of the park probably overrates the last Unforgotten (which I did think was very good ) and underrates Line of Duty(ditto)

    While I realise it is very hard to disregard what went before, if the last series Line of Duty had just been an individual one off, I reckon it would have been panned as pretty standard cops and robbers fare with a daft ending,
