Line Of Duty, the BBC’s drama about a police anti-corruption unit, become the UK’s most-watched drama series of the 21st century so far earlier this year as viewers tuned in to see H finally unmasked.

Responding to the show’s three TV Choice Awards wins,  creator Jed Mercurio said: “Everyone involved in Line Of Duty is absolutely thrilled to be recognised in this way by the viewers and readers of TVChoice, it means an enormous amount to us and we couldn’t be more grateful.

“It wouldn’t be the show it is without the amazing performances of Vicky, Martin, Adrian (Dunbar) and our brilliant guest leads including Kelly Macdonald for season six and all the other brilliant guest leads we’ve had. They’re the guys who actually do it on camera so it’s definitely a tribute to them.”
