Jed Mercurio About “In The Line of Duty” (BBC, 2012)

BBC – Series introduction by Writer/Producer Jed Mercurio.

Jed Mercurio says the show had to be full of moral grey areas and populated by antiheroes.

“I’m extremely proud of Line Of Duty. It’s beautifully shot by Ruairi O’Brien and brilliantly directed by David Caffrey and Douglas MacKinnon, and the performances are extraordinary. Lennie James has never been better (and that’s saying something). Martin Compston and Vicky McClure are dynamic young leads; as actors they’re mature beyond their years. Gina McKee, Adrian Dunbar, Craig Parkinson, Kate Ashfield (as Mrs. Gates) and Paul Higgins (as Gates’ commanding officer) are riveting; and Neil Morrissey (we called him “TV’s Neil Morrissey”) is an absolute revelation in a role that gets darker by the hour.”
