I don't watch [tv] that much on iplayer but have been enjoying LoD, even if I needed to catch up earlier on. To be fair, it has been a bit frustrating not chatting about it, it's bloody good stuff. Perhaps next time (if there is a next series) we could do a thread with spoiler warning where we can chat about it on an up-to-date basis. Maybe a second thread for a general non-spoiler discussion?

Just an idea.

I am beside myself. Who says American TV is better than British?

Well I was wrong about who Balaclava Man was but the guy I suspected who was entirely innocent when he first appeared was right up to his neck in it, as I thought.

And didn't Roz H pull another blinder in that last interview.

And CI ACC Creepy Paws got it.

Bloody ace.

Splendid final episode which simply zoomed by. Much better and more believable than the rather OTT climax to S3, imho, with lots of loose ends to carry forward.

Together with The Missing, one of a handful of truly world-class contemporarily-set shows on UK TV right now.

Apparently already been recommissioned for (at least) two more series. S5 will apparently be about Hastings who's performed the miraculous feat* of being both a catholic and a freemason.

Anyone out there remember Between the Lines from the early 90s which addressed similar issues and was also very, very good

* Well, it used to be, nowadays one suspects 'The Mafia of the Mediocre' will take anyone they can get

Not as far as I know: it just cropped up in the top 100 shows, and people started talking about it

Right. It's the best thing I've seen in years.
