Line Of Duty: What happened at the end of season 5?

The most gripping cop drama on TV is back, with the first episode of Line of Duty series six arriving on Sunday evening.

Jed Mercurio’s acclaimed drama will see Adrian Dunbar, Vicky McClure, Martin Compston and co back in the fold at AC-12.

There’s a new name to look out for too, with Detective Constable, Chloe Bishop – played by Shalom Brune-Franklin – stepping in to join the cast.

There’s good news too, with more episodes than previous seasons on the way.

New episodes will pick up following the explosive events of series five and the identity of H – the last person standing from a quartet of corrupt coppers hidden deep within the Central Police Force – could finally be revealed.

The last series aired back in 2019, and there’ll be plenty of viewers in need of a recap before enjoying the new episodes.

Here’s everything you need to know.

The last series focused initially on the character of DS John Corbett, played by Stephen Graham.

The undercover cop appeared to have turned while infiltrating the organised crime group (OCG), having been briefed to discover the identity of H.

However, he met a sticky end after being double crossed by OCG member Lisa McQueen (Rochenda Sandall). We also later his murderer Ryan Pilkington enrol as a police officer, suggesting that he could have a bigger role to play in series five.

Following John Corbett’s death, the focus switched to Ted Hastings (Adrian Dunbar), with Patricia Carmichael (Anna Maxwell Martin) grilling him on his links to Corbett.

Hastings was suspended from duty, but his name was then cleared after it was discovered that lawyer Gill Biggeloe was trying to frame him.

Viewers also learned that there were four police officers working with the OCG, rather than the one they first assumed. Dot revealed the information using morse code just before his death.

While we knew that Dot himself, Derek Hilton and Gill Biggeloe were the other three, the identity of the final bet copper is still yet to be discovered.

Line of Duty begins on Sunday at 9pm on BBC One. It will also be available to watch on BBC iPlayer.
