My Thoughts

This is a series that is filled with plot twists and surprises, and each episode ends in a cliff hanger. Series 5 picks up with more police corruption. There are six gripping episodes in this unforgettable season.

1- Three police are killed during a hijacking, and other police may have been involved.

2- An undercover cop is trapped in in a crime group, and a police leak enables a raid.

3- Corbett wants to exploit corrupt cops, and a new discovery reveals the corruption goes further up the ranks than they originally suspected.

4 - There is still fallout from the raid, and a chance opens up to capture Corbett.

5- An investigation of Corbett's past explains some of Hastings behavior.

6- Kate & Steve find themselves trapped between loyalty to Hastings and their vow to find the truth.

Overall, this was an awesome series. The action level is constant and there's never a dull moment. If you want to get the advantage of a full set of amazing stories that will leave you on the edge of your seat, than this is the box set for you. You can orderLine of Duty Series 5 at Acorn Media.
