LINE OF DUTY: cop-on-cop action TV procedural that demands analysis

not actually new but I only just binge-scovered it on netflix (overlooked ftb boring name i guess): caught up w/s1/2 since sunday, started s3 late yesterday, will get to s4 in next couple days no doubt

the anti-corruption ppl try to reign in the corrupt ppl, except who is which? and who will win? lots of things to enjoy, some things that bug me

SPOILERY NOTES FOLLOW, tracer i need yr input here
a: neil morrissey has (a) turned into cary grant kinda, and (b) shd give up comedy, he's good at serious sleazy drama!
b: it is great at shock developments (on sun i told myself "just one more ep b4 bed" and hence confronted self w/a home invasion and a throat-cutting)
c: it seems happy to bump off characters you assume will be around for a while
d: a couple of the are-they-aren't-they villains have been a bit swervy as plausible character types (i'm thinking dryden mainly)
e: lol they shd make a dexter-style tec series round denton, she solves crimes FROM PRISON on the days she's let out or something -- anyway she was terrific to spend time with, as a "who/what exactly is she?" kind of an invention you invest a lot of sympathy in and then omg
f: i'm hearing a bit of jumps-the-shark talk abt the most recent developments (hence girding my challopsy loins for the argts)
g: at heart it's *very* ACAB (even the good ones are arseholes, and treachery institutionally determined)

looks strangely like him now, has evolved unexpected silverback gravitas, real name archibald leach

(it doesn't really work obv, since cary g was all abt the comedy even in serious roles, and neil is -- it turns out -- only tolerable when he isn't being one bit comical)

(but he does look like cg all of a sudden) (possibly bcz acting with a stick reveals his previously less-evident tallness)

Yep, watched the last series back-to-back on a flight and it was excellent - though i am not sure i entirely got what Denton was up to in the grand scheme of things.

The finale was audaciously silly in a way that worked surprisingly well.

Not so far!

I think the show has vaccinated itself against shark-jumping by being very silly indeed and almost always getting away with it. There's an amazing moment in the season three finale involving a text message that's Adam-West-Batman-level preposterous - you'll know it when you see it - but the way it plays out is quite fun and exciting.

When Doctor Who and other BBC shows go blockbuster, I tend to eyeroll - but this show seems unique its ability to be "gritty realistic" and also totally daft at the same time - the momentum always keeps you from questioning the story. It's almost Ian Fleming-like.

Chuck_Tatum, Wednesday, 29 March 2017 14:15 (four years ago) link

End of the last season seemed to be pretty shark jumping for various character interpersonal and behaviour reasons. But I'm lookiing at the new one anyway.

But the guy from forensics may be getting himself a little type cast.
& hope that Tandie's in throughout the season.

Stevolende, Wednesday, 29 March 2017 14:21 (four years ago) link

it has some of the best queasily confrontational hostile interviewing i think i've ever watched -- where you really aren't sure who you want to root for, when both sides are quite compromised and also quite unpleasant ppl (or have anyway recently behaved unpleasantly)

and this seems to happen in nearly every episode! as if the somewhat ludicrous turns the story often takes are devised purely to engineer these confrontations (i mean, i kind of assume they are)

a couple of those involved are a bit too mask-like too often maybe

good work too with police computer systems: all horrible 90s design and typefaces, the opposite of CSI nonsense

mark s, Wednesday, 29 March 2017 16:54 (four years ago) link

When do we get to talk about the ending of S4E1? That was preposterous (in a good way, like most of the rest of it, esp that text message moment mentioned upthread. Happy Valley it ain't).

Lindsay Denton is/was a fascinating character though. As are/were Nige and Dot and Dryden. I still love the bit at the end of S1 where someone was chopping Arnott's finger off in a vice and he was trying to arrest them for assaulting a police officer as they were doing it.

My favourite moments are when Fleming stands on the AC-12 balcony, and a SUSPICIOUS GLARE-OFF erupts between Kate and whoever's leaving the building.

Aside from that - the ending to the season four premiere suggests the new season will just be an extended game of exquisite corpse

*MARK MAY OR MAY NOT ASSUME WE'RE TALKING ABOUT SERIES 4 HERE*

Series 1-3 all killed off leading actors who were meant to have prominent roles really early on - Gina McKee in S1 (to be fair, she lasted until episode 2), that lass from Call the Midwife that went out the window in S2, then Daniel Mays in S3. It's totally a thing, so much so that we were taking bets as to who was going to bite it by the end.

I think I mentioned elsewhere how last year there were loads of folk on Twitter going "OMG IT WAS A TRUE STORY" just because they did they "Nige retired on a full pension, Kate was given a medal of honour" type summary over the credits, people took that to be what actually happened to real people rather than a lazy plot device.

btw, since Kate went full-on action hero and got herself a medal at a big showy ceremony, how come she still gets to go undercover as a mystery secondee called Kate and no-one ever still knows who she is?

I think this too. Am now also wondering if that scene is hinting that Ted isn't H: Ted believes the solicitor didn't rat, so Ted-as-H has no real reason to order a prison hit on him.

So either Steve is H (which would be some "Gossip Girl is uh ... Dan" bs) or H wasn't in the room.

Two episodes left and I think Mercurio has hinted that not everything will be tied up by the end. He seems up for doing more but BBC haven't confirmed yet although you imagine it would be shoe-in given the ratings/hype around the show (assuming everyone's available)

References to the Stephen Lawrence/Christopher Alder cases a little on the nose, but then this show has not been known for it's subtlety in referencing real life events. Evidently it's something Mercurio feels extremely strongly about though as his production company is making a drama about the Lawrence case currently.

Could Banks have been fibbing re: Hastings tipping him off about Corbett, we've only got his word that that was what was discussed and he's hardly what you'd a reliable character. Seems like a good way to drive an irreconcilable wedge between Arnott and Hastings.

Brainless Addlepated Timid Muddleheaded Awful No-Account (Pheeel), Monday, 19 April 2021 11:50 (yesterday) link

Did the earlier seasons put Savile quite as front-and-center? They've had a few allusions to him this season, and to the Cliff Richard fuck-up, both of which are very sore spots with the BBC. Makes you wonder if negotiations on the next series weren't going well.

stet, Monday, 19 April 2021 12:08 (yesterday) link

Photo shown on screen during the interview with Fairbank in Series 3, although IIRC they didn't name Savile, it was more along the lines of "I am showing the suspect an image of a well-known celebrity."

S3 also had the very obvious Cyril Smith stand-in

Li'l Brexit (Tracer Hand), Monday, 19 April 2021 23:01 (yesterday) link

Actually thinking about it, could the whole business with Steph Corbett be a set-up to cast suspicion on Ted (again)? First of all turning up at AC-12 to talk to Hastings instead of meeting somewhere more private, thereby guaranteeing Arnott's suspicions about his Gaffer will lead him to pay a visit and (eventually) find the money which could easily have been planted. Then her strange behaviour on the phone to Steve last episode, as if she was under pressure to break off the relationship. It's also a bit odd that her kids never seem to be in the house. Could easily see the OCG putting the screws on her just like they have Davidson, e.g. "Do this for us or you'll loose more than your nice house," etc.

OTOH I'm aware this probably relies a bit too much on coincidence to be plausible. Also a bit wary of getting too heavily into speculating after the last series, when pretty much every theorised outcome turned out to be more interesting than what actually happened.

Brainless Addlepated Timid Muddleheaded Awful No-Account (Pheeel), Monday, 19 April 2021 23:06 (yesterday) link

It's also a bit odd that her kids never seem to be in the house

I've been thinking that too, but tbf she did run outside for the call, presumably to escape their prying ears. So like... I guess I'm an idiot but what did Steve finally realise the money was for?

Li'l Brexit (Tracer Hand), Monday, 19 April 2021 23:08 (yesterday) link

He clearly had some inkling from the start as he was not so subtly probing her about how she was able to afford to keep living in the same house, the luxury Sky package, etc.

The forensics confirmed it was part of the same dirty cash planted in Ted's hotel room last series, suggesting he had pocketed some of it and given it to Steph because...dunno, guilt over Corbett's death maybe, or to keep her quiet about something else. But that's assuming he did give her the money, and Ted would have to be pretty stupid to be handing out large amounts of cash from organised crime that could be traced directly back to him. He didn't float up the Lagan in a bubble y'know.

Brainless Addlepated Timid Muddleheaded Awful No-Account (Pheeel), Monday, 19 April 2021 23:54 (yesterday) link

Right but in this episode Steve feels like he's cracked it - he knows what the 50K was specifically for. He gets in his car and calls Kate and tells her so, and then of course we don't hear the rest.

Li'l Brexit (Tracer Hand), Monday, 19 April 2021 23:58 (yesterday) link

Also.... at least one of the gunshots at the end has to have come from Davidson, no?

Think they’ll play Ted off Steve and the whole plotline about Steve’s addiction and Ted keeping the AC-12 news from him - especially after Steve has changed his mind about his transfer - seem to play into this.
