Corruption-laced police drama Line of Duty has been gripping the British viewing public for months, with the final episode of its most recent series airing last night (Sun 5 May).

Here are some of the best social media reactions from fans of the programme.

Everyone had to share their admiration for one of the series’ best lines of dialogue

Line of Duty fans also reacted to that twist…

There was praise from BBC journalist Victoria Derbyshire, among others, for Anna Maxwell-Martin, who plays DCS Patricia Carmichael

Other viewers were less impressed by the season finale and the wider season itself

What’s next?

Line of Duty will return for a sixth season, with the BBC having commissioned another run prior to the fifth season’s end.

However, the broadcaster has yet to indicate when series six might air, with fans potentially having to wait until spring 2021 if the show follows its traditional two year cycle.
