Writer Jed Mercurio said of series 6: “As with every series of Line of Duty, we introduce a brand new character. This series we have Kelly Macdonald who plays DCI Joanne Davidson. It’s a great device for allowing the series to be accessible to brand new viewers who have no knowledge of previous series.

“This series, AC-12 will investigate what’s going on at Hillside Lane Police Station in a case led by DCI Joanne Davidson and we look at the investigation of a cold case.


It’s a high profile murder case of Gail Vella that has remained unsolved for over a year and which the police force is struggling to solve. There’s been no closure.”
