Line of Duty series five arrives on DVD on the 6th May

"Skilfully cranks up the suspense and if you don’t let out at least three involuntary squeals, you’re made of sterner stuff than most...as fiendishly addictive as ever."

Lauded as ‘the king of the crime dramas’ by The Telegraph, the highly acclaimed, hit series Line of Duty –  from award-winning scribe Jed Mercurio (Bodyguard) – returned this Sunday for its much anticipated fifth rollercoaster instalment.

The BBC have confirmed that the fifth series will arrive on DVD - alongside the full Series One – Five Complete Box Set -  on the 6th May. The releases from Acorn Media International will also be available to buy digitally (download and keep).

Here's the official blurb from the BBC...
Line of Duty Series Five sees the return of AC-12 investigators Superintendent Ted Hastings (Adrian Dunbar), Detective Inspector Kate Fleming (Vicky McClure) and Detective Sergeant Steve Arnott (Martin Compston) to tackle another major case of police corruption. The team are joined by some familiar faces, alongside a stellar line up of new characters, but who can they trust?


One of Britain’s great acting talents Stephen Graham gives an awe-inspiring turn as John Corbett, the ruthless leader of an Organised Crime Group (OCG) who hijack a seized drugs convoy. When three police officers are shot dead during the heist, AC-12 move in to investigate possible police collusion.  As the body count rises, AC-12 realise they could be facing their most vicious adversary yet.


With its intricate plots, and shocking twists that keep everyone guessing, there’s huge excitement building for the new series of the gripping Line of Duty, the show that everybody is talking about.
