Line of Duty

As Line of Duty fans await to hear if a seventh series is in the offing, the massive ratings prove that the appetite for crime dramas and cop shows has never been greater.

The crime genre has long been a constant of the television landscape, dating back to shows such as Dixon of Dock Green.

Everyone has a favourite fictional detective, whether it’s a fastidious Belgian with an upward, curled moustache or a cigar-smoking, Italian-American in a crumpled overcoat.
