Martin said earlier, “I’ve been a fan of Line of Duty for years, so was dead chuffed to be part of series five. I’m so pleased I no longer have to keep it a secret!

“I feel honored to follow in the footsteps of the host of great actors who make up the Line of Duty family, and Jed Mercurio – of course – has written a brilliant character in Carmichael. She’s a woman on a mission.”

Jed Mercurio also said earlier, “Season five feels like it’s the very fresh territory. There are things we haven’t done before, characters we haven’t seen before, and that I think’s part of the construction of the series. We have that architecture which allows us to rejuvenate the format.

He further added, “Possibly we’ve arrived at that accidentally but because it would appear now that we have this situation where the audience is intrigued about what we’ve got to offer based on who the guest lead is going to be, what other characters there are, what the fundamental premise is, we’ve been very fortunate that as the series has gone on, people have engaged with every story.”
