Ted Hastings), the new series will also see the return of Maya Sondhi as PC Maneet Bindra, Polly Walker as Gill Biggeloe, Aiysha Hart as DS Sam Railston, Tony Pitts as Det. Ch. Supt.

In Series 5, when three police officers are shot dead during the hijack of a seized drugs transport, AC-12 move in to investigate possible police collusion.

John Corbett, the ruthless leader of an Organised Crime Group (OCG), are behind the hijack but AC-12 investigators Superintendent Ted Hastings (Adrian Dunbar), Detective Inspector Kate Fleming (Vicky McClure) and Detective Sergeant Steve Arnott (Martin Compston) suspect corrupt police officers of leaking information.

As the body count rises, AC-12 realise they’re facing their most vicious adversary yet.

In tonight’s fourth episode (April 21), Tensions rise in the OCG following the events at Eastfield.

With troubling questions hanging over the identity of ‘H’, suspicions mount at AC-12.
