Though the explosive finale wasn’t *quite* what we were expecting, it’s no doubt left an AC-12-shaped hole in our lives. What ever will we do without Superintendent Ted Hastings, DS Steve Arnott and DI Kate Fleming to keep us entertained between 9 and 10pm every Sunday night?
As well as tuning into The Pursuit Of Love, the Bridgerton-style period drama that’s taking its prime time spot on BBC One, you could work your way through the back-catalogue of our favourite trio’s TV shows.
That’s right, call us obsessed (we are, no judgement please), but we are revisiting our favourite action-packed dramas starring the main cast from Line Of Duty; Martin Compston, Adrian Dunbar and Vicky McClure. Yep, we’ve got a lot of shows to binge-watch. But let’s be honest, it’s too cold and wet to sit in your local beer garden this weekend anyway.
If you fancy joining in our binge-watching quest, then boy, are you in for a treat. Compston, Dunbar and McClure have been in plenty of other gripping, edge-of-your-seat thrillers and crime dramas that can even give Line of Duty a run for its money.
Take Traces, season 2 of which is expected to drop soon, in which Martin Compston plays Daniel McAfee, who becomes embroiled in a criminal investigation after falling for protagonist Emma Hedges (played by Molly Windsor), a lab technician at the Scottish Institute of Forensic Science (SIFA) who’s trying to discover who murdered her mother.
Or you can catch Vicky McClure in critically-acclaimed shows such as This Is England ’90, Broadchurch and The Secret Agent. And did you know Adrian Dunbar stars in a TV show as a – wait for it – bent copper?! Jesus, Mary, Joseph and the wee donkey!
Here are 12 TV shows where you can catch Adrian Dunbar, Martin Compston and Vicky McClure, and where to stream them now…
