Viewers are wondering who will leave the room alive after a gripping showdown between DCI Huntley and a colleague.

Line Of Duty fans were left reeling as the first episode of the fourth series ended on a shocking cliffhanger.

The police drama returned on Sunday night with newcomer DCI Roz Huntley (Thandie Newton) on the hunt for a serial killer following two murders and an abduction.

But in tense scenes at the end of the episode, Huntley appears to have been killed in a struggle with forensics co-ordinator Tim Ifield (Jason Watkins).

They have a scuffle during a row and Huntley hits her head and collapses.

But as Ifield powers up a chainsaw and prepares to dispose of the body, Huntley flicks open her eyes.

Fans are now concerned that the officer is about to meet a grisly end.

With Huntley’s life hanging in the balance, fans cannot wait for next week’s instalment of the BBC1 series.

Hopefully the week will fly by!
