Line Of Duty fans are concerned that tonight’s episode might be pulled off air in light of Prince Philip’s death.
Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh died on Friday morning at Windsor Castle at the age of 99.
The news broke just after noon, with BBC One interrupting its broadcast of Bargain Hunt with a news alert.
The broadcaster continued to air wall-to-wall coverage of his death and even set up a specific complaints form on its website dedicated to complaints about ‘too much Prince Philip coverage’.
Naturally, Line Of Duty fans have been worried that tonight’s fourth episode of the Jed Mercurio police drama would be postponed to make way for updates on the late royal’s death.
So, will it be going ahead?
Is Line Of Duty on tonight?
Line Of Duty’s official Twitter account confirmed that the show will be airing as normal tonight at 9pm.
‘Beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep…’ they wrote in a tweet posted on Saturday.
‘Join the AC-12 interrogation, #LineOfDuty continues tomorrow at 9pm on @BBCOne.’
Martin Compston, who plays Steve Arnott in the series, also teased that the episode is a pretty big deal.
‘Tomorrow’s the big one episode 4!’ he penned last night. ‘On paper one of the best @jed_mercurio has ever written, if we deliver what was there potential to be a classic.
‘Like to give a shout out to the young team Shalom and @gregorypiper98 who give outstanding performances in the midst of the madness.’
A synopsis for the episode teases: ‘DCI Jo Davidson faces increasing pressure from all sides as AC-12 make major breakthroughs in the investigation, but an attempt to interview a key witness goes horribly wrong.’
Line Of Duty airs Sundays at 9pm on BBC One.
