UK news Line of Duty: Did the final episode live up to the hype and provide an ending to satisfy millions of viewers? last news

PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! "Yes, says Maureen Coleman When the Line of Duty finale ended, the texts and private messages started to come in. Disappointed fans wanted to vent their frustrations and sure, it was easier to vent at me, a self-proclaimed superfan and reviewer, than the show’s creator. Seriously people, take a chill pill.I never thought I’d be in the position of having to defend probably the biggest and ‘definitely’ the best, television drama that’s been offered up in years. But many viewers feel cheated and that’s ok. We’re all entitled to our opinions, including me. And as unpopular an opinion as it is, I enjoyed it.Here’s why. Firstly, the big revelation was unexpected. Carmichael was the bookies’ favourite to be the fourth H, while Osborne topped a YouGov poll as most likely contender. I’m guessing few people had the bumbling Buckells as the last man standing. As twists go, it wasn’t mind-blowing but neither was it predictable. And that’s good enough for me.No, says Gillian Halliday A peripheral or recently introduced character would have failed to pack a punch. And resurrecting someone from the dead would merely have made a mockery of the audience.

. I would have served a Reg-15 on Mercurio myself had he gone down this route. And yet it seems that many wanted to see Hastings, Arnott or Fleming in the frame.With this conclusion, we’ve been left with a moral vacuum. Maybe a seventh series will see things right.Ted Hastings could have been speaking for peeved off Line of Duty viewers everywhere when he retorted, “No one makes mugs out of AC-12” during the series finale. Alas, that’s how the ending of the sixth series felt to us fans: that we had been made to feel like mugs. Clues here and there may have been deftly placed breadcrumbs from the very beginning that the fourth shadowy ‘H’ figure was bungling cop Ian Buckells — the problem is that after nearly 10 years of build-up, the reveal was, well, a huge anti-climax. Even Hastings’ ‘wee donkey’ would have been disappointed with that revelation, which fell flat in its execution. The interrogation scene, which in previous series has been genuine edge-of-the-seat electric television and a fan favourite staple of the drama, failed to really ‘sell’ Buckells as the corrupt copper at the heart of a conspiracy. A criminal whose downfall, let’s not forgot, was orchestrated by his own sub-par spelling ability. Riveting stuff indeed. The episode started off in classic Line of Duty style: an ambushed convoy, albeit with a twist this time round in that it was thwarted, injecting some welcome action and pace into the finale. Minutes later, however, it just became run-of-the-mill TV. If this indeed was the last ever series of Line of Duty, it will sadly not be talked about in the same breath as The Sopranos and Breaking Bad — series which ended in sublime perfection. "
