Hudson Box Office (HBO) - Line of Duty

“Line of Duty” Season 1 follows two interwoven cases over five episodes, and begins after a terrorist raid goes wrong, and one of its lead officers, Detective Sgt. Steve Arnott (Martin Compston), is transferred to the AC-12 anti-corruption unit.
Steve and a colleague, Detective Constable Kate Fleming (Vicky McClure), are given the unenviable assignment of looking into the dealings of Detective Chief Inspector Tony Gates, played by Lennie James (“Jericho,” “The Walking Dead”), one of the most admired officers on the force, who leads a small team of ardent loyalists.
Nothing is obvious or straightforward, and no side has a monopoly on truth or even the facts. For more link here .
